A Scramble to the Finish

I think just about everyone is ready to turn the page into 2021. Who knows what we have in store after this to tumultuous year?

Tonight I’ll finish my 40th book of the year. Simple math tells me I’ll have this month to read 10 books in order to reach my annual reading goal for the first time ever. Is it possible? Sure. Is it likely? No idea.

I entered October needing to read 24 books to reach the goal. Yes, I realize I was well behind with nearly half the books remaining. But eight in October and five in November have all led to this final, glorious month of December to finish. The problem won’t be the number of books I have left. The problem is really the books I have on my shelf to be read. As you can imagine, I’ve spent some time these last few months thinking about which books will get me to the finish line. But so many of the books I have are either lengthy, not interesting, or both. Now is not the time for a 550 page brick.

This may cause me to make another trip to my local Half Price Books. I actually went this past weekend, but didn’t want anything. Would it be cheating if I read the next 10 Wimpy Kid books? 😂
