52 Books in one Year!

Four years ago, I noticed that I wasn’t reading as much as I use to, so I set a goal for myself, read 52 books.
The first year I failed, I read more than I was reading but I didn’t reach the 52 I need it to meet my goal, but there is something interesting with goals, I didn’t complaint because I read only 45, trust me.
The year after that I reach 52, the one after 56 and last year 54. Tonight I just reach 52, and therefore I can cross this big goal of mine until next year (even tough I will continue reading)
