200 Books in 2020

New decade, new goals, am I right? I’ve been doing annual reading challenges since 2012, the year I started grad school, and I barely passed 70 books—and last year, I read 177 books.

This year, I’ll try to push myself to reach for new heights and read 200 books, which will also count audiobooks, comics, manga, and ebooks. (I always count these, but I do indicate audiobooks to give an idea of how much reading I do while I’m also doing other stuff.)

In 2019, I read #2 nonfiction books and %2 book in genres I don’t typically read, meaning I didn’t meet my goal of #7 nonfiction and %5 in other genres. This year, I’ll aim to maybe finally read #7 nonfiction and %5 books in other genres I don’t usually read. Who knows? Maybe this year will be the one.
