I Think I Broke It… My Goal For Reading This Year

One of my friends set a goal for himself in 2012, to read 40 books. When I heard he beat it I thought “woah thats a great goal to have, I bet I could beat it.” So I set out to beat his 40 and read 50 books this year. Lets just say I broke my record.
