    Wow 125 books! My goal is to read 14… haha! I’m not really shooting for the sky.
    But that aside, I agree. I don’t really do resolutions either (even wrote a blog post about it haha!), but goals are always a good thing.

    That’s a lot of books! I’m going to try to read through the “A Song of Ice & Fire” so that I am ahead of this coming season’s plot line.

      It took me all summer to read the Game of Thrones books. Those things are massive!

  5. Courtney @ Don't Blink. Just Run.

    We use the Kindle app on our iPads and I LOVE that we can rent e-books from our library. It’s such a cool thing to be able to do. My wife is the same way with reading. She much prefers holding and smelling the books too. We decided if we ever win the lottery and can build our dream home that it will include a library.

    I am so happy to see your critters getting along better! Told you’d just take time. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I totally agree with you on real, physical books. I was against ereaders for the longest time. Just hated the idea of it. In July I got y first smartphone. Tried out the Kindle app on it. I spent my Christmas money this year on a Nook, and I hate to say it, but I have not picked up a single physical book since I got my smartphone.

    My Good Reads goal this year was 35. I think I ended up at 84 or so. This year my goal is 100. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Sorry you were sick over the holidays. I started reading on my iPhone two years ago, and it really got me reading more because I always have it with me and I can download books easily. I just got a Kindle, but mostly to be able to watch shows on the treadmill! I should check out my library ebook policy.
