on Reading Challenge
This post takes 2 minutes to read

This post is an update on how I've gone so far in my 2016 Reading Goals. You can see my original post on these goals here, the first three month update here and six months here.

In July, August and September and I read 37 books, which means I have read 82 this year. I'm still ahead for my Goodreads challenge.

I did the 24in48 read-a-thon and BookTube-a-thon in July which were awesome fun.

Uni and family stuff have got me totally behind so I've not read anything for the Feminist Orchestra Bookclub.

I'm still managing my read 50% women goal. If you don't count second-hand books I have also managed to buy majority Australian authors.
