2022 Reading Goals

Let's see if I reached any of my reading goals.
This isn't going to be pretty.

Goodreads Challenge: I set my goal for 125 books, and I've read 119. So close!

Newbery Award Books: My goal was to read 20 this year. I managed to read 7. Dang!

Re-read Books: I wanted to read 20. I re-read 13 books. I probably could have finished this one if I had focused on it more. I need to find a re-read challenge.

Book Club: I wanted to read 10 out of the 12. I did it! Yay!

Video Games: I wanted to beat 5. I have no idea how many games I beat this year. I can't even remember the games I played this year.

Well, there is always next year.
How did you do on your goals?

Nintendo Stats

Nintendo sent my the yearly gaming wrap up. They aren't as fun this year. I liked the stats they showed in previous years better.
