reading Every year I add a reading goal. This particular one counts the number of books you read. I have done this for almost 10 years now and I love keeping track of what I have read this way.

This challenge is through Goodreads. You can see reviews, follow friends, get book ideas, make reading lists and keep track of those books you have read. It’s a great resource.

Here are a couple fun facts about the books I read this year. I read 60 books and over 20,000 pages. My goal was 50 books, but I surpassed that for the second year in a row.



And here are the actual books that I read this year. My last book is listed first, my first book listed last.

There is something so satisfying about looking at all the books I have read in a year. It is so satisfying and I feel so proud when I can scroll through them. I love having this memory to be able to remember some wonderful (and not so wonderful) books that I consumed this year.

For 2021, I have set my reading goal to 60 books. Since I have hit that goal two years in a row, it was time to up my goal. I would love to be able to read 75 or 100 books in a year. That will definitely be a goal for me one day in the future. Also, I do include audiobooks, chapter books read with my kids and books I read myself. I read a LOT of children’s books and picture books (bedtime usually), but I don’t count these on my list.

So there it is…my 2020 in books!


header Ponder This:

  • Do you set a reading goal?
  • Is your goal just number of books read or another challenge?
  • Do you count audiobooks? Kid books?
  • What is your reading goal for 2021?
  • Have you read any of the books on my list?
  • Have any of these books inspired you to add them to your reading list?
