Now I will post some goals for next year: my goal for 2019 is at least 100 books.
I plan on reading an average of one nonfiction and one fiction ARC from NetGalley each month, for a total of 12 each in a year.
Total: 24, Running Total: 24
I plan on completing 2018 and 2019 shortlists for the Man Booker Prize and the Wellcome Book Prize. Pictured above are the books on 2018 shortlists that I do not plan to have already completed. The Wellcome Book 2019 Prize longlist will be announced in February, the shortlist in March, and the award winner in April. The Man Booker 2019 longlist will likely be announced in July, the shortlist in September, and the winner in October. Depending on how I’m doing on last year’s shortlists, I may read some of the longlisted books as well.
Total: 12, Running Total: 36

c. World Literature
