Library Books Readathon Begins: Goals

Books I want to finish: 
The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin
My Lost City: Personal Essays and
On Writing by F. Scott Fitzgerald

After that, it's free game! 

After participating in two readathons and using different methods for each to track my progress, I've come up with a new way to do it. The first time, I wrote a post about my progress every single day. This was nice because it kept me accountable and I enjoyed writing my thoughts, but after a few days it just got a little stale, and it also kept me online more when I should have been reading. The second readathon (not too long ago), I tried doing what many bloggers do and just keeping a log on a single post of page numbers, what books I read, etc. This turned out to be way too hard for me, and what's more, I didn't want to write any other posts during that week because then my readathon post would keep going down the page until no one would ever see it, even though I kept updating it every day (well, I tried to). 

So this time, I'm going to continue blogging like normal (reviews, etc.) during the readathon, and I'll write a post sometime in the middle of the week to discuss my progress, and then a wrap-up post at the end. Hopefully, this will help me get the best of both worlds!
