  1. I didn't do so great last year with reading but plan on doing much more reading this year. I want to keep trying audio books and new authors/genres. And finally read the books I have been holding onto for years! I accept your reading challenge but will try to read 150 books this year. Happy reading!!

  2. It sounds like you are off to a great start. Good luck and feel free to share your progress.
