Haven't updated in awhile but I managed to get to my (revised) goal. I originally wanted to get to 25 books but realized partway through the year that it just wasn't going to happen.

I think next year's goal will be even more modest for me... maybe 12 or 15? I want to read the rest of the Game of Thrones books and tackle a few of the longer works that I've been avoiding in order to reach my goals.
