January was a lovely month. You can tell when I started college because my total really dropped. I had plenty of free time most days this fall, but very little access to books I didn't already own. So I probably read more books this fall than recorded but if they were already on my spreadsheet as a first time read or first reread of the year, then they don't get entered again.

I'm pretty proud of the number of books I read, although I'm pretty sure 2015 won't hold the same number. My Goodreads reading challenge for 2014 was 200 books, and I've only challenged myself to read 150 this year. I think that should be attainable, considering how many books are on my TBR list. I'm also a bit of an overachiever. While some people are happy to have read 4 books a month, that's just not enough for me.
So let's talk reading stats! What did yours for 2014 look like?
