Eighty-One Percent

That’s how much of 2015 is gone–81.13%, to be exact. Now, I’m not a math expert, but I did a quick Google search to see what percent of my book goal I’ve accomplished. The answer? 68%.

Bottom line: I have 16 books to finish in about 11 weeks.

So, here’s a look at what’s left on the shelf. I’m not going to plan out those 16 books because I can’t read from a set list like that. But since it is Back to the Future day, here’s my best guess at what’s coming up in the next eleven weeks:

  1. Shakespeare’s histories–I’m reading Henry IV part I right now, and I have plans to read the second part as well as Henry V. I’ve also got some posts planned about why we should read Shakespeare.
  2. Poetry of some sort–I haven’t read any good poetry this year, so I’m looking to branch out. I’m thinking some Luci Shaw or Madeleine L’Engle to close out the year in a poetic fashion.
  3. Advent devotionals–I have a shopping cart full on Amazon, and I’m hoping to spend December reviewing all things Advent.
  4. Textbooks–My built in cheat. I’m about to finish reading some books for my classes that have actually been pretty interesting. You can expect reviews of those as well!

I’ve found it’s helpful to stop along the road to your goals and take inventory. This post is mainly a game plan for the next eleven weeks as I move into the business of holidays and huge writing assignments. Looking forward to the last 16 books of 2015!

Keep Reading!
