Books of the Month(5): Part 2

Books of the Month is where I share books I got In My Mailbox, read, and reviewed during the entire month. This month I've added a new category: Shared from My Shelves. This includes books that I've loaned to my friends and other readers. Variations of these types of posts exist on many blogs so I am not claiming credit for this idea.

This was a huge month of books for me. I had to break this up into 2 posts. You can see Part 1 here, if you missed it.

2012 Reads: Complete List, Goals, & Challenges

Last January I joined some challenges and set some personal reading goals. Throughout the year, I tracked my reading progress and listed below are my reading goals and accomplishments for 2012. Even though I didn't accomplish all that I set out to do, I have to say that I didn't do half bad.  

On January 1, 2013, I will have a whole new set of goals. I'm not officially joining any challenges, but I am setting several personal challenges. If you are interested, you can check back to see what they are on my January 2, 2013 post. 

Read 85 books for the Goodreads Challenge: Read 105 (all titles listed below)

Read at least 10 e-books: read 25!!

Read 20 books from my bookshelves that I purchased prior to 2012 (doesn't include e-books): this is embarrassing, but I only read 13 books "from my shelves"

Read at least 10 library books: only read 3

Finally read Pride and Prejudice: I started Pride and Prejudice. I am about 1/3 of the way through and with each slow-turning page, I realize, with just a few hours left, it's not going to happen this year. So I'm pretty sure FINISH Pride and Prejudice will be on my 2013 goals list.
