In short, I wanted to expand my reading tastes, and try different things. Sure, I have a goal, but I'm not going to die by it. I read fast, so yes, I go through some books quicker than others, but I'm not skimming. I've DNFed I think two or three books so far this year. Hopefully I won't have to do that again.
But anyway, I'm happy about my goal, and I love reading. Some people think I'm nuts, but I'm having fun and learning things about myself as a reader (and a writer!). And isn't that the idea of reading, fun?
