    if i don't like your avatar i don't like you

    2018 Goal: read 48 books

    my lowest goal since I've started reading, but for 2018 i have A LOT of large / massive books on my shelves that need to be read so it'll take some time to get through those.

    smaller 2018 goals:

    - finish "The Border" trilogy
    - finish "His Dark Materials" trilogy
    - finish the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy
    - catch up on other series where I have a book or two waiting (i.e. The Wheel of Time #2, The Stormlight Archives #2, The Familiar volume 5, etc.)
    - read at least 12 Stephen King books - and going in chronological order (bought like, 45 in 2017, need to get through some of these)
    - read at least 20 books that are 700+ pages

    if i don't like your avatar i don't like you

    some of my favorites from 2017:

    * The Group (Mary McCarthy)
    * Freedom (Jonathan Franzen)
    * Number9Dream (David Mitchell)
    * Drop City (J.C. Boyle)
    * By Nightfall (Michael Cunningham)
    * Salem's Lot (Stephen King)
    * Infinite Jest (David Foster Wallace)

    2017 also saw me start to read graphic novels and utilize audiobooks

    most disappointing from 2017:

    * King Leopold's Ghost - too dry and hell, felt like the majority of the book wasn't even about King Leopold and what he did
    * The Amazing Adventures of Cavalier & Clay - super boring for the first 300ish pages. Joe's story was cool, Sammy's was very much not "amazing" in any way
    * A Moveable Feast - blah
    * Ready Player One - was okay, nothing spectacular though that's for sure
    * 1Q84 - I love Murakami, but this... i don't know what 1,100 pages of nonsense this was

    Welllllll it's not that I don't want to grab a book and change that. It's mainly due to the fact that I can't concentrate on reading anything, which makes it take foooorever for me to finish a book because I end up getting 5 pages in and realizing that I don't remember anything that I read. It's been the story of my life since I was a kid. Ha...

    Going to make a list of the books on my shelf that I meant to read last year and never got to. Going to make a habit of reading before going to bed in the winter.
