Catching Up:

Last month, I mentioned that I was going to start focusing on my shortest ARCs first so I could make some quick and steady progress, and that’s what I did — and, as you can see from my last few months’ State of the ARC posts, I read more ARCs in November than I have in any single month for most of this year! I’m really proud of the progress I made and I’m hoping to make even more progress in December — especially with Short-a-thon coming up!

    1. I always love looking at these stats!


    1. I’m super impressed with how much progress you made in November! I sort of did State of the ARC last year (just not on my blog) and I actually ended up doing pretty well! I didn’t read as many as I wanted, but I ended up pretty much entirely banning myself from requesting more, so I only have ten left (out of 25). Hopefully I can finish off the list this year!
