2018 Goals: Reading - Update

I have about a month left to accomplish my goal of reading (or listening to) three books per month. I figured I'd post an update since I just finished a book (which I started reading because I realized, while reading the summary presented at the beginning of And Another Thing..., that it had been skipped in the order of books; this oversight has been remedied and I can now return to my previously scheduled reading).

I think I'm on track to accomplish my goal. The highlighted entries are the newly-ish added completions to the reading list (since the last post back in June). Any book without an entry in the "month finished" column is in progress. I don't think I'll finish reading the Covey book by the end of the year...

If you didn't notice, I discovered the Dresden Files. The audiobooks are amazing and I highly recommend the series. 

If you were interested in a summary that doesn't involve you counting entries, there are 35 books listed, 4 books in progress, and 10 12 nonfiction books. If I don't finish the one mentioned above, I'll need to add 1 nonfiction and 1 other book to the list to meet both the goal and the subgoal. 

Good luck, me.
