Reading My Height in Books #9

Hello!

It is time for another instalment of Reading My Height in Books. Another 4 books have been added to the stack.

The height of the stack is now 41.5 inches. That just means I have 25.5 inches left to go and I think I will be able to manage this, all being well. The dissertation is finished now and that means I have been enjoying a little bit more reading time.

Here are the pictures from the previous months. Look at that book stack grow!

Happy Reading

Reading My Height in Books #8

Hello!

I thought it was time for the monthly update on the massive book stack of all the books I have read so far this year.

Another 4 books have been added to the pile.

The height of the stack is now exactly 39 inches which means I just have 28 inches to go. Fingers crossed I can manage it. I think once my dissertation is complete then I will hopefully read more books.

Here are the pictures from the previous months.

Happy Reading.

Reading My Height in Books #7

Hello!

My two best friends have been asking when the latest update would be for Reading My Height in Books so I thought it was high time I updated them.

This month I only read 4 physical books and one tiny Ebook but thankfully two of these books were rather thick so hopefully it has helped with the height.

So here is the latest stack picture.

The height of the stack is now 33.5 inches which means I am now exactly half way! I’m still hoping I will complete the challenge but it all depends how my reading goes over the next few months.

Here are the pictures from all the previous months this year. Look at that stack grow!

Happy Reading!

Reading My Height in Books #6

Hello!

It is that time again! So the massive stack of books is getting rather precarious and this time the photo involved me having to stand behind the stack to stop it toppling over. I currently prefer reading big books at the moment so hopefully that will help the stack grow.

I read 5 physical books this month so that has helped the height.

So here is the new stack. Apologies for the crazy hair it is a bad hair day. Lyra also decided to join the fun.

The new stack is 29.5 inches high! Just 37.5 inches to go, still haven’t reached the half way mark.

Here are the pictures from the previous months. Look at that stack grow!

Happy Reading!

Reading My Height in Books #1

Hello!

So one of my reading challenges for 2021 is to read my height in books. I am 5 foot 7 inches so I think it will certainly be a good challenge.

I am going to take a picture each month with the hopefully ever increasing pile of books.

Here is January’s picture. I will be honest I am not entirely comfortable having my picture taken so apologies for the awkwardness.

January’s books measure at exactly 6 inches with has made me realise I need to read quite a few books for this challenge and some big books at that.

Books Read in January

The Dark Veil by James Swallow

The House on Vesper Sands by Paraic O’Donnell

Dissolution by C. J. Sansom

Leviathan Wakes by James S. A. Corey

The Mysterious Affair and Styles by Agatha Christie

Fingers crossed I manage the challenge.

Please drop me comment with your 2021 reading challenges.

Happy Reading

2021 Reading Goals

Happy New Year!

I hope 2021 is a better year but to be honest I can’t see that it will dramatically change straight away. However, I still plan on having a good reading and blogging year.

My reading goals for 2021 are as follows…

  1. My Goodreads reading challenge will be 70 books again as I only just managed 70 in 2020. I have to do a lot of reading for studying so need to factor that in.
  2. I plan to do a few buddy reads in 2021. We are starting with Dissolution by C. J Sansom, hopefully if we enjoy the book we will carry on with the series.
  3. The Expanse series by James S. A. Corey. I plan to read the series this year as I love the TV series and have just started reading the first book in the series and absolutely love it.
  4. Agatha Christie. I have only ever read short stories by Agatha Christie so 2021 is my year to read more of Agatha Christie’s full novels. I won’t set a goal of how many but I plan on reading the books in order of publication.
  5. Shakespeare Challenge. This challenge I started in 2020 so I hope to get a few more ticked off the list in 2021.

So there are my Reading Goals for 2021. Hopefully, I will get to tick them off as I don’t think they are too strict, after all I am a mood reader and reading should always be fun and not restrictive.

Please drop me a comment with your 2021 reading goals.

Happy Reading!
