How many books have you read this year so far?How many books have you read this year so far? Melissa #questionnaire
I’ll probably have 36 by the end of the year…
35 and aiming for 40 by end of year
I’ve read 36 books so far
Working on number 122 now
Trying to hit 156. At the beginning of the month, I still had something like 50 books left to get to that number and had to average one book every two ish days. *Think* I’m in front of that curve at the moment. In the middle of an eight book series right now (starting book 3) that I’m trying to finish before the end of the month. 2200+ pages total.
68 days for 34 books. Crap. I’m not as ahead of the curve as I thought. 🙁
Bro you just made me feel like I’m not a bookworm. I don’t deserve that title????
@Prisca lol. I happen to have an easy job that pays very well. I also have no kids and no life outside my home. And I don’t watch much TV or even play many video games right now. I’ve had other years where I played games more/ watched more TV where I struggled to read even half of what I have so far this year.
And I have (retired, mostly) friends that have read more than double what *I* have 😀
Wow I’ve finished about 5
Does textbooks for school count? 8 textbooks and 35 fiction books
I was ill all summer, but I got better in the fall and I just did a book count the other evening. Only 26 books by mid october! Feels weird to me.
I’ve lost count 🙂
That’s what goodreads is for. ?
I forget to update it.
But thanks…I know I need to get better about documentation.
I don’t think so. I think if you forget to update it, documentation isn’t important to you. I don’t think you should waste your time doing things not important to you.
Now I won’t say I done 15 so far. With the numbers people done give hear. I’m shocked.
100 so far
Ya’all are putting me to shame! ???
No need for shame, read & enjoy x
what about ya?
43… Off the record +5(romance)??
25 so far …
I think the important thing is that you enjoy all the books you have read. The number of pages of the book you read is different.
Maybe a few more than 36.
Keep count on Goodreads 🙂
Two chapters off of 70 reads this year. My goodreads challenge is 80 so I’m confident I can do it ?
I keep track on Goodreads. I am at 126 completed. My goal was 100. But we all read at our own pace! I read all the time. Riding in the car. Walking down the street. While my family watches tv…..
About 100 novels
All Dostoyevsky, dickens,Hugo and Shakespeare’s novels
I’ve only read 14 so far …
29 and my goal is 30.
I’ll find out my total on New Year’s Day. Every time I finish a book, I put a dollar in my book bank. On New Year’s Day I count it up and take a field trip to the book store. No peeking beforehand ??
That is a great idea for kids too!
I love this idea for both adults and kids. Especially kids, itsa great incentive to get them to read more. Thanks for the idea ❤️?
This sounds like a good idea .. I’m going to start this next year.
@Glenna Me too!!
I love this idea ??
42. Was originally 26
61 my goal was 40
About 46 (although I think the number might include one or two I started but didn’t finish), and soon halfway through another one. I hope to get to 50, but I also plan on reading a really super duper fat one in November (I won’t be able to join NaNoWriMo this year, so I think I’m going to be reading a book on writing instead.)
74, I think
Not the foggiest x
Currently working on book 49 of my own but including the books that I read to my children? Far too many to count! ? Although I reread the same books to my littlest one over and over and over and over again, so I’m not sure it counts ?
37. On 38 right now.
1 on book 2 right now lol I just got back into reading
About 30 books so far and countless I’ve read to my grandson if that counts. I read him at least 3 books per evening before bed ❤️?
I’ve never counted.
115. Goal was 100.
130 so far
On my 49th
Whitney Wyant and @Donna I might read a little fast.
Lucky you! You can read more books that way.
Definitely. It makes me happy. I did recently sit down and figure out how long it will take me to read my TBR. That was a mistake. I would need to live 500+ years to read them all.
@Melissa sounds like my TBR, too
48 and finished almost 90 percent 49th.
Ooooooh, probably about 25ish
45, just started 46 of 50 (challenge)
27. I’d better get busy. I read War and Peace. Can I add 3 more for that???
I vote yes. I want to reread it next year! 🙂
34. It’s the first year I’ve noted what I’ve read and it does encourage me to read more. My target for the year is 40, so it’s looking promising!
IDK, 12 maybe
I’ve read 9 so far.
I’m on #25. I’ll probably get 30 in by the end of the year, which is double last year. I’m trying hard to increase.
52 of my goal of 55
Lots. But I’m at home all day.
13 out of 50.
165. My 2018 Goodreads Challenge goal was 125. I thought I was aiming high!
I went in and raised mine 🙂
@Linda never even thought of that! Thanks!!
118 so far. My Goodread’s goal was 100.
109 so far. In the middle of about 10. Lol. Plus probably 40 books to the grandson , about 50 times each. Lol
41 and I’m currently reading 2
26 of goal of 30! Pretty good!
Puh.. i dont know. 15 maybe? 20? Still fighting with the name of the rose. Its interesting and a challenge at the same time
And I call myself a bookaholic hahahha
If you are fighting with a book ditch it. Life too short and there are millions of good books out there.
I know. But it is interesting at the same time. I dont know….
357 so far
Brilliant ??You seem to be a fast reader.
@Suman generally about a book a day thank you
28. I am constantly reading, but I guess I’m a slow reader lol.
Behind this year. 57
18-19 (approximately) excluding the audio books
I have no idea. I don’t keep track.
I am more focused on reading rather than counting. I read anything and everything I can find
I don’t keep count either, generally about a book a week.
Only 62 I need to hurry if I want to finish my challenge!
I’ve read 40 so far.
I’m almost done with #31
27 working on 28 now
I really read no more than 5 or 6 a year. But for me, they are good reads.
You are reading- that’s great!
@Thérèse ?that’s amazing
@Olga not so much I had 8 weeks post op in bed this summer
(Mandatory). Not much else to do…
@Thérèse uffff tough luck, hope u fully recovered n doing great n still will be able to spare much precious moments for books ?

@Olga I honestly have no idea how I found the time lol
Ashley Elget I wish to have same “no idea how” n get that time ? great job n have much more to enjoy ur reading!!! I’m still jealous ???
104 and counting!
49 so far.. I use goodreads to track all I read and want to read and my re-reads
174 so far
I have a goal of 204 and currently at 184.
I am at 33 right now. I have learned to accept the fact that now that I am working again I will not be able to read 100+ books in a year anymore.
