Could someone pass me energy and motivation? Holy heck, I feel like it is November and it is only June 1. I’m dreading reviewing my challenges because I’m almost certain I’m not doing as well as I did last year. Remember last year when I figured out that stress was a trigger for buying books? Well, I’m currently stress to the max and while I haven’t purchased a ton of books, I have only been acquiring new ARCs and focusing on them. So that’s good because I haven’t spent a ton of cash, but bad because my older books are still collecting dust.

Well, hot dog, 9 posts! With 4 or 5 #ShelfLove discussion posts left in the year plus I have one GoodReads/Ultimate Book Blogger How To percolating in the back of my head, I think I’ll do just fine completing this goal.

Okay, so I’m making good progress here as well. May was a good month for me. With two airline trips, I was able to speed through quite a few books. Namely those new ARCs that I acquired. The good news is that this past weekend I did go back to some of my older eBooks and select one to read. In other good news, I’m only behind on reviews by two or three books.

So I’m doing so hot here, folks. I wanted half of all the books I read this year to qualify for the #ShelfLove Challenge. I’ve read 24 books to date so 12 of them SHOULD have been books I already own. I’m not that far behind though…4 books I already own seems doable. I just need to focus and find in the shiny old books in my collection and read those now. NO MORE ARCs. *laughs* Oh, who am I kidding, I’ll still read new ARCs.
So how are you fairing in your reading resolutions this year? What other non-reading resolutions did you make? How goes your progress on those?
