Two months left in this 2021 TBR Challenge, fellow readers! Are you going to make your goal?

Despite what seems like ages spent doing yard work (and thus listening to audiobooks), I’m still very far away from my goal–I’ve completed only 4 out of the 20 TBR books I’d hope to read this year. Can I read 16 books in two months? Sure, if I didn’t have too much else going on. Will I be able to do it this year? I don’t know. I haven’t been very prolific so far, plus I have baby blankets to crochet for Christmas and I’ve begun plotting a new book (for the first time in forever!), so I’ll need to find time for writing again. I’m thinking about changing my goal, but this late in the year it feels like cheating, lol.

There is good news for me this year, though! I have only acquired 22 new books! My Goodreads shelf says that I gained 72 new books last year (yikes!), and that doesn’t count anything I may have borrowed from a friend or the library. So while I’m not reading nearly as fast as I did in previous years, I’m also not adding to the TBR pile as fast 😉
