Hello everyone and welcome to my thread! My name is Stephen and, well, I like to read. I suppose you already knew that. I used to complete the challenge fairly easily but over the past few years I've barely managed to finish 50 books. I'd aspire to do better, but I've embraced my subpar performance and set my reading goal for 50 books instead of 75. Hurray!

Last year, I spent most of the year reading Great Tales of Horror by H. P. Lovecraft. I normally only read 1 book at a time, and it was the first time I had an ongoing collection of short stories, and I really liked it! So I'm doing it again this year, except this time I'm reading Grimm's Complete Fairy Tales. I don't yet know how I'm going to post about them, most of the stories are under 5 pages and there is something like 200+ of them, so I might do a weekly roundup or something like that. Anyway, I'll be keeping track of my overall progress on this post!
Pages read: 111 out of 682
Stories read: a few out of a bazillion
Pages read by month (and page I ended on to make next month's calculation easier.)
January: 66 (Page: 67)
February: 35 (Page: 102)
In case you missed it, this is a thing I'm doing now. Feel free to cringe. It's okay.
>2 Ape: I really need to read Lovecraft. I have played enough games set is his Mythos!
Happy New Thread, Stephen!
Oh, also, this summer, we'll be in Columbus for something like a week. I feel like this WILL BE the year we have a meet-up! YES! Yes? Yes. Let's do this!!
Happy new thread!
