Let’s take a look at the progress for what goals I have set for myself. You can take a look at the resolutions page here.
My goals are:
75 books total According to Goodreads I have read 66 books (this does include some picture books)
12 children’s fiction books I have read 12 so far (consider this goal met-I still want to keep up reading more children’s books to keep up to date for my job) 3 picture books (I have read more than 3 picture books, but these are the ones on my Goodreads):
9 early reader/fiction books:
5 classics I have read one classic so far: The Secret Garden. Oh boy I need to get on this one.
5 rereads I have re-read 3 books. I am planning on re-reading the first two Mara Dyer books before that last book comes out.
16 books from my category list I have one category left.

Another big goal was to research and finalize plans for my masters. I am almost done working up a list of the schools and the cost. It will be expensive, but I really don’t want to wait much longer.
