EAM's Gonna Try It Again in 2023

tammikuu 5, 3:27 am

I fell short of last year's goal so I am back to redeem myself. I'm going to set my goal at 65 and adjust upwards if I am on fire. I look forward to reading about how each and every one of you is doing and taking a peek at your book shelves. Glad to be back. Hi!

Hi EAM. I'm trying to catch up on threads again. LT had been a bit neglected by me. I've kept my own thread and lists up to date, but not other stuff. My bad.

Glad you have been reading a lot of ROOTs already. Good job.

Hi EAM, just catching up on threads again. I hope you are doing fine and ROOTing is moving nicely along.

elokuu 30, 2:16 am

4 for the month- 35 for the year. I am SO behind...

elokuu 31, 4:52 am

>21 enemyanniemae: My target is 52 (1 book a week) so I should be on 35 for the year. So I suppose 32 isn't *too* bad, but I seem to find it impossible to catch up! I think I've read most of my super-short books already, normally I use one or two of those to catch up!
