I Read 63 Books in 2019

As a member of Goodreads you get to set yourself a reading challenge of how many books you want to read in the coming year. In 2017 I set a goal of 40 and read 41. In 2018 I set a goal of 38 and read 39. This year I knew my reading game had gone up a level, so I set my goal to 50, and as of last night, have read 63 books and started a 64th. These are those 63 books I read in 2019, Date Read being the day I finished said book. Now to set my goal for 2020…
