I had this odd thought on New Year's Eve. I was about 100 pages away from the end of my current read, and had this odd urge that I should finish the book before midnight so that I could start the new year with a fresh new read. I didn't end up finishing the book until later in the afternoon on January 1st, but it made me wonder if anyone else felt this way? Did you push yourself to finish the final book of 2014 IN 2015, or are you okay with having a book that bridges the old year and the new year? Or if you finish a book on, say December 30th or 31st, would you start a new book, knowing that you might have to continue reading it in the new year?
I'm honestly not sure if this has ever happened to me before! Perhaps last year, I just happened to finish my current read prior to December 31st, or maybe I just didn't care, but this year I did. In the end, I suppose it worked out in my favour, since I'd already completed by Goodreads goal, and now I already have one book read for 2015, even if I technically started it last year =P
