Once again this year I’m going for “My Precious”. I failed in 2015 by 1 book! How sad is that? I am determined to at the very least hit this goal level but strive for a mid-range total of 40. I’m hoping I’ll get it together and start walking again (once it’s not so dark. I’m afraid of the outdoors, alone, in the dark) which means more listening time.
