When Lucy saw Becky setting reading goals in 2015 and 2016, she wanted to start one of her own. So this year we set her up with a GoodReads tracker and a 50-book challenge, which seemed ambitious, but doable. We completely underestimated her.
This is part of our 100 Things in 2017 challenge. Click on the photos for a closer look!
As of today, Lucy’s Goodreads account shows 408 books read in total, with 124 of those in 2017 alone! Here are just some of the books she read this year:
We should note that use of the GoodReads service is intended for people over the age of 13, so we treat this as supervised access to an account that belongs to one of us, and she is only allowed to be “friends” with the two of us. For Lucy’s purposes, this works perfectly, since she can enter her ratings for books, and once she’s old enough to agree to the terms herself, she’ll have her entire history right there.
We looooove raising avid readers, so this has been really gratifying for us. Here’s to more challenges in the future!
