At the beginning of December, I’d read 326 books. This was something like a handful short of my 2018 total, some 20-odd short of my 2016 total, and about 70 short of my 2017 total. So, not entirely seriously, I was like hey what if I tried to beat my 2017 total. And obviously that then became hey what if I tried to hit 400 books for the year.
And then it became less of a joke.
Note to self: if you decide to try read 400 books next year, don’t choose to do it with one month left, 74 books short.
