Earlier this year, I had signed up for a GoodReads campaign and set a goal to read 10 books by the end of the year. I’m a pretty slow reader, so I thought this was roughly a book a month.
To my surprise, I found that I’ve already reached that mark and might have a few more under my belt by year end!

Part of renovating my blog as part of the 10 days to a better blog is two fold:
- Look to see what has been successful on the blog
