Goodreads 2019 Reading Challenge
If my calculations are correct, then I should be able to meet this challenge and all the other challenges, no problem, so I’m not worried.
One down, three to go. I’m very happy with my progress indeed but I need to keep this momentum going. No time for slacking!
I hope to see you again very soon.
