A public pat on the back. I finally met a deadline over a month in advance of the due date.

Of course, it helps that the deadline was self-imposed, and entirely pleasurable.

If only they were all like that …

Each year I do the Goodreads Reading Challenge, and 2018 was no exception. I set my goal at 45 novels for the year, and just finished number 45.

Another great reading year. I read some great books this year, discovered many new authors and read new novels of some of my favorites. A few duds, too, but that goes with the territory.

Still have plenty of novels on my towering To-Read list for the end of 2018 and the start of 2019, but I am always, always open to recommendations. Let me know your favorites.

And, of course, Happy Reading to all!
