2018 Goals: Reading

Back in January, I created a list of 13 goals that I wanted to accomplish during the year. I've accomplished two of these goals so far: buy a house and stop taking iron supplements. Four of the goals for the year are ongoing and can't be considered "accomplished" until the end of the year. One of these four ongoing goals is to read (or listen to) three books per month. A sub-goal is that one of these three books per month should be a nonfiction book. I seem to be on track with this goal; I've read 15 books and I have three in progress.

Here's the list so far.

The Happiness ProjectGretchen Rubin
The Ghost BrigadesJohn ScalziJune
7 Habits of Highly Effective PeopleCovey

As you can see, the nonfiction books tend to fall into the self-help category. So I've unintentionally turned this into a year of reading self-help books. It's actually more enjoyable and useful than I ever would have thought.
