January 2018 Pages Read Challenge

Please post your updates for January 2018 here. Please only make and then edit one post throughout the month and don't add a new post everytime you do an update during the month.

If you are including a cumulative number of pages read in your forum post could you please indicate if it is the sum of pages read for the month (MTD) or for the year (YTD)

I hope everyone was able to meet last years goals, I did by the skin of my teeth, that last week of December! Because I plan to read several longer books this year (over 500 pages) I have decided to lower my goal by 1000 pages. Hopefully I will go over that, but this way I will not feel so much pressure!
