November found me a long way off my reading game. I had some time-consuming personal commitments which chewed into my reading time. And I DNFed two books this month. Combined, it makes for the worst reading month I’ve had all year. Of course, acquisitions haven’t slowed down at all. I managed to pick up some […]

2017 is now half over and I have met my initial annual reading goal of 100 books. I’ve decided to go ahead and set a new target. Without the Aurealis Awards to spur me on, my reading pace has slowed, so I think 200 books isn’t realistic. However, 150 books should be achievable. June was […]
