*Platypire Read-A-Thon* December

December is here, which means it's time to update my reading list.  I do have several books to add to the list, largely because of the 12 Books of Christmas reading challenge going on for most of this month, and with that in mind, those books will be my primary focus (aside from the proofreads, because books I'm getting paid to read always take precedence over books I'm not being paid to read). Without further ado, let's see my updated list. 

R - Read
C - Currently Reading

So I'm only adding 9 books to my list this month, and that is almost entirely because of the 12 Books of Christmas Challenge (and one proofread that I know about so far). According to Goodreads I need to read 14 more books to meet my original reading challenge goal for the year (although I've got at least two proofreads from this year that are not yet listed on Goodreads, so they're not being counted). I really want to hit my goal of reading 120 books for the year, so I absolutely need to get 12 books read this month. That may be difficult since I've gotta' go through ALL my stuff to sort and downsize before the movers arrive mid-month to pack our stuff up. But I can probably get a whole lot of audiobook listening done during that time, so it's still possibly doable. 

How many books do you think I can get read this month? - Katie
