Bookish Resolutions: July Progress

1. Read 200 books in 2015:
I'm up to 148 already. I can hardly believe it! But 73 of those have been under 200 pages (and half of those under 100 pages), so page-wise I'm further behind last year. Still pretty happy with my progress here, though. My book count will be higher because I've been reading so many that are fewer pages.

2. Read 12 non-fiction books in 2015 (1 a month preferably):
I finished Ann Thwaite's A.A. Milne: His Life which was absolutely and completely fascinating. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes biographies.

3. Clear out my Currently Reading GoodReads shelf:
Still have one left sitting here, so no additional progress this month.

4. Read at least 2 print books I already own each month (with an eye to weeding):
Other than the Milne biography, I read The Scorch Trials and The Death Cure by James Dashner. I had read them before, but have been wanting to do a re-read ever since The Maze Runner movie came out. So, not planning on getting rid of them right now, but I technically completed this goal :/

5. Read at least 2 eBooks I already own each month:
Did much better on this goal than on the print goal. I read Jus Accardo's A Darker Past, The Adventures of Zelda: Pug and Peach by Kristen Otte, and Jennifer Niven's All the Bright Places (which just ripped me up in the best way). I also read most of the novels/novellas/short stories in the collection of Grace S. Richmond's works that I downloaded ages and ages ago. They were interesting and definitely not something I would have read if it hadn't been sitting in my queue for this reading resolution quest.

Overall pretty pleased :)
