I'm on a Roll!

I've managed to finish a book every day for 10 days straight! This was entirely unexpected and unplanned, but as soon as I realized I was on day 6, I knew I had to try for a full week. And then I was actually able to keep going. I'm not sure I can extend the streak to 11 days, but I think finishing on the nice, round number 10 is entirely satisfying.

This goes a long way toward my Goodreads Challenge goal for 2019. Usually I set my challenge for 100 books a year. But as I managed 130 last year, I thought I would push myself to 125 right from the start. 12 books in 10 days is maybe the most I've ever read in a short period of time... at least, the most since that summer in my youth when I practically inhaled Sweet Valley High/Sweet Valley University books.

Here's what I ended up finishing:

Feb 12: Duel!: Burr and Hamilton's Deadly War of Words by Dennis Brindell Fradin
Feb 13: Wonder by R.J. Palacio
Feb 14: And Every Morning the Way Home Gets Longer and Longer by Fredrik Backman
Feb 15: Snow and Rose by Emily Winfield Martin
Feb 16: The Wish List by Barbara Ann Kipfer
Feb 17: Goodnight iPad by Ann Droyd also Alice in Wonderland & Jabberwocky both by Jennifer Adams
Feb 18: I Was the Cat by Paul Tobin
Feb 19: Blood Water Paint by Joy McCullough
Feb 20: Elevation by Stephen King
Feb 21: All Washed Up (Husband & Husband Vol 3) by Aaron Ferrara
