What I’m Reading {2015}

I’ve said before that for six years or so I’ve set a goal with my reading. For many years that goal was 100, and I’d usually exceed it by a dozen or so. In 2012, I decided to up the goal to 150, and in 2013 I upped it further to 200 (and exceeded it!). In 2014, I had a baby, so bumped my goal back down to 150, but in 2015, I’m back trying for 200.
