2016 Book Challenge: Update

Well, 2016 is 66.6% over, and two-thirds of the way into the year, I decided to do a check in with my reading goal on Goodreads to see where I stand.

But let’s not lie, I look at my reading challenge every time I finish a book just to revel in the sweet, sweet percentage increase.

This year I challenged myself to read 68 books, one more than last year. As of today, I have read 53 (78%.) It’s a very real possibility that I might exceed my goal

First book of the Year: Micro by Michael Crichton, Richard Preston

Latest Book: The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo by Amy Schumer

Fiction: 21


Audiobooks: 22



Favorite Book (fiction):Bird Box by Josh Malerman

Favorite Book (non-fiction): Killer Show by John Barylick

Least Favorite Book (fiction): Ring by Koji Suzuki

Least Favorite Book (non-fiction): The Ascent of Man by J. Bronowski

Longest Book: Carrion Comfort by Dan Simmons (884 pages)

Shortest Book: Fire and Rain by Jerome Greer Chandler

At the end of year, I’ll have a full recap and reflection. How will my list change? How many books will I end up with? And most importantly, can anything be worst than The Ascent of Man?
