Reaching for More Glory

The Day 7 challenge for Bout Of Books #22 is:

Stretch Goal

It's the last day of the readathon, so today's challenge is to take a look at the goals you set for the week (if you have them) and decide a) how you can stretch yourself to complete them or b) how you can revise them so you can meet them. Because yes, you can revise your goals! If you didn't set goals for the week, set a small one for yourself today!

My original goals were a) to read 3 or 4 books and b) to stay away from places where I can spend lots of time finding new titles to add to the TBR (To Be Read) pile.

Now, at the beginning of Day 7, I have read:
  1.     "Excellent Women" by Barbara Pym
  2.     "Red Bang" by Brandt Monroe
  3.     "The Unexpected Inheritance of Inspector Chopra" by Vassem Khan

and I am 1/3 through:

    "The Ladies of Missalonghi" by Colleen McCullough

Plus I do think I spent productive time reading books and not just reading more book reviews!

Revised goal: I might fit in another short novella, "Santal" by Ronald Firbank.
