  1. You are doing fantastic on your goals!

    1. Thanks, Vasilly! Even with my Reader's Block and extended blogging break, I've reached most of my goals for the year. Hope you're doing fantastic on yours!

  2. You doing great! I am failing miserably at my reading goals for the year. I thought at first it was due to me finishing up grad school, but four months and one book later, I am still in my reading slump. Having a marathon viewing of Seasons 1-9 Criminal Minds isn't helping either.

    1. Congrats on finishing grad school. Quite an achievement. Hopefully your reading slump ends soon so you can read fiction instead of schoolbooks.
