I had a goal on goodreads to read 52 books this year. I am at 48 now. I don't think reading with the mindset of reaching that goal is the best mindset to have, but on the other hand missing the goal by just a few books would be very annoying. And reading instead of mindlessly scrolling through social media is an improvement. I will probably set the same goal next year.

I have started getting portal submissions approved in ingress now. Which is very nice. It is a great feeling to have contributed to my local PoGo community. (And nice to be appreciated for creating a Pokestop nearer someones house.)

So, well not that much has been happening. I am having a nice time though, so that is what counts.

Having a goal gives you the opportunity to measure the results. If you don't reflect on the goal after hitting/missing it, then it was pointless.

Maybe next year the goal should be 26 books. Or 100.

You don't know until you examine the value you got from pursuing the goal.


In other news, I almost read three books this year. I know I almost read them, because they are still on my nightstand next to my bed. In fact, they may be stuck there.... fused to the table... chemically bonded to one another.

I have no idea, because it has been so long since I picked them up.

I did read other books this year. But I couldn't tell you what they were, right now... completely slipped my mind...
