2019 BFB Challenge Running Total

I hope that we will still manage 100 BFB's during 2019 as 2018 was an exceptional year with the numbers read and I for one will not get anywhere near the 30 (including my last read of 2018 which is near to completion) and others may not read as many.

I set a goal of 15 for 2018 and I'm currently reading my 15th – which I don't think I'll finish in time, so it will be my first for the New Year.

2018 was the first year I've been in the BFB challenge and it did push me to get a few big guys off the shelf. I had a goal of 6 but read 5 so I'm setting my goal for 5 in 2019.

Hmmm... I never set a goal for BFB's. I just read what appeals to me, whatever the page count.

I will read 6 or more BFBs this year.
