Bookish Resolutions: September Progress

1. Read 200 books in 2015:
I'm up to 177! I'm still a little low on pages compared to last year, but I've got a couple of really long books I'm working on right now, so that should help. I'm also going on vacation this month, so I'll have time to just sit on the beach and read. Whee!

2. Read 12 non-fiction books in 2015 (1 a month preferably):
Made this (and have made significant dents in two more non-fiction books that I should finish soon. This month I read Becoming Maria: Love and Chaos in the South Bronx by Sonia Manzano which was really interesting.

3. Clear out my Currently Reading GoodReads shelf:

4. Read at least 2 print books I already own each month (with an eye to weeding):
Made this goal, even though so much of my reading time has gone to the aforementioned giant non-fiction books. But I did manage to finish Armada by Ernest Cline, Becoming Maria mentioned above, Curiosity House: The Shrunken Head by Lauren Oliver & H.C. Chester, and The Blackthorn Key by Kevin Sands.

5. Read at least 2 eBooks I already own each month:
Made this one by a lot! Read Awaking by Madeline Freeman, Batgirl #1 by Gail Simone & Ardian Syaf, A Girl Named Digit by Annabel Monaghan, Bear is Broken by Lachlan Smith, and The Blue Fairy Book by Andrew Lang.

I'm excited to see how this will all look at the end of the year.
