What is your reading goal for the year?
100 books – and I am at 62 already
100 books. That’s my annual goal. On 43 now.
52, I aim for 1 per week. I tried for 100 one year and did,pretty well. I’m halfway through 24 for the year
Trying out 50 as a goal, have never kept track before.
My goal is to enjoy ?
Took the words right out of my mouth…. er.. fingers.
Agreed ladies ?
Mine is 40. Just finished my 28th. So i might have to ad 10. I will figure it out by July 1st.
To just pick out REALLy great books, and enjoy
To enjoy them at whatever pace. I’ve read some excellent ones so far this yr.
I couldn’t agree more ❤
I set the goodreads challenge to 100, but I don’t take it all that seriously. I just set it to see how many I read through the year.
Mine is also 52. Like @Kathy, last year’s goal was higher (120) and I found myself rushing thru books trying to teach it. This year I’m savoring my reads and not doing a marathon! I am, however, way ahead
Exactly! I found I was rushing through them when I tried for 100
I’m currently at 39/100. I’ll probably read more than that but this is my first year keeping track through Goodreads.
100. I’m at 52
I set mine at 352 on good reads. What I had in mind was 52 chapter books and 300 children’s books. I am a home instructor and been keeping track of what we read. With that being did I’m on 40/52 and 54/300 picture books.
50, but I’m behind thanks to my good friend Charles Dickens.
I started at 250 change it too 300 on Good Reads, right now I have read 135 so may end up changing the total again.
Great @Margaret! You must either read fast or have a lot of time to read.
@Teri Yes I do read fast, but also because of chronic pain and illness I’m home all the time, I read as a outlet to help me take my mind off of hurting 24/7.
@Teri I think that is the case for manny voracious readers.
You’re so right @Tonni, I’m the same way. But I can’t seem to read more than 2-3 books a week. Right now I’m trying to get several books read and reviewed for Netgalley. I requested a bunch thinking I wouldn’t get approved for all of them and got approved for 17!!!!
I’ve set my Goodreads goal at 60 this year and have read 28 books
40, but I’m behind pace right now ?
GoodReads set at 60.
Good Reads is set at 35.
Read all the ones I have on ebook!
Set to 50
Goodreads set at 150 and I’m at 115 – 23 not finished so I’m at 92. I read a few each week but finding I’ve slowed down that weather is getting warmer
75. I am on track:)
100 and I’m up to 25 I think!
55 and i am on 23
260 but don’t think I’ll make it. On book 91 now
I set Goodreads at 60 and I think I’m on 42
175 on Goodreads, but 200 for real.
Goodreads is set at 40
I don’t set a goal, just read as many as I can enjoy. I read at least 3 a week.
I’m the same way.
Wow. I am so impressed by everyone here. I read about a book a week. (I think.)
As many as possible
I usually set my goal for 50, that’s about a book a week. That generally includes some photo-intensive books, such as home decor and art technique books, so the reality is probably 45 books a year – but the most important thing (to me) is to read for pleasure and attempt to remember what I liked or disliked about whatever I’ve read!
I’m a book a week girl, and the better the book, the more slowly I want to read it, so I don’t miss out on any beautiful language and can prolong being in another world.
Just 50 this year.
I never set reading goals. I read each book at the pace I feel it (and I) deserve. For me it’s not about quantity, but quality. Plus, I have to find time to actually write one per year to keep my agent and publisher happy! :p
I had 50 because I had no idea how many books I read in a year. I believe I am at 29 now so I should have guessed higher.
I just read one after the other. I have no ‘goals’. That would be too much like work. I read for pleasure. Maybe I read about 50 per year.
100 and I am on 30
I don’t set goals. I read as enjoyable time no race enjoy
75, just finished 30. I read 5 in the past week while on break from school.
To enjoy every book I read.
I never think about the number of books! Some I can’t put down! Others I struggle with ( But I never give up on!) and they take longer and then there are those I purposely stop reading b/c I can’t stand the thought of finishing it!! So! I honestly don’t have a number! ?
I have put down a few I didn’t start doing that until after I turned 50. Suddenly I realized if it feels like pulling teeth I don’t have to read it. I do admire tenacity though!
200! I’m at 102 right now ?
40 or more since I read and crochet simultaneously.
I put 60 for my goal on goodreads. If I can go over, I will.
Just to make time for reading!! Such a simple pleasure!!
As many as I can.
Mine is one a week – 52 – but I’m already at 38.
I’m on #30. 2 to 3 a week!
100 but I’ve read 74 so I think I’m gonna raise it to 150.
Mine is 100. I’m at 54
I read between 50 – 60 per year but I am at about 30 already.
I’m on 56 of 265 according to Goodreads. But they aren’t counting my rereads which I do on favorites.
50 books in total and trying to read one non- fiction book per month
