This post a place for me to keep track of the books I read in 2019. Feel free to skip this post, or you can share book recommendations, talk about your reading goals for this year or anything book-related.

My goal last year was to read 100 books, which I achieved. I read 128 books in 2018. Not too shabby, considering I hit a loooong reading slump in the fall.

My goal for 2019 is 75 books. I'll be changing jobs at some point during the year, and it's unclear if that will impact my reading time. My new job SERIOUSLY impacts my reading time, so I changed my goal to 50 books.
