I was going to start slow and go for 50 books, but I've actually hit 48 yesterday. So I may extend this to around 70-75.

With university about to start again, maybe that's too ambitious?

I am aiming for 100 books. I thought my goal was a bit too high at first, but I am loving getting lost in all the different worlds and characters, so fingers crossed I can reach it! :handgestures-fingerscrossed:

I started getting back to reading again last August so I did not choose a big number for my goal this year. I started at 10 and then when I get closer, I would adjust the number. Now I am at 30 and I'm 2 books ahead. :mrgreen:

Right now, I'm aiming for 30 and I'm 2 books ahead. Just started reading again last August that's why the number is not that high.

My goal at the beginning of the year was 1 book per week, so 52 total books. So far I am ahead of schedule at 47 books, most of which have been read in the past month :)

I only wanted to read 25 books this year (roughly 2 per month). I started my goal mid-year, and I am already over halfway there!

At the beginning of the year, I chose 52 books...one per week. I used to work 3-4 jobs at a time and barely had time for a handful of books. I now work from home on my own schedule and have almost unlimited time for reading. So far I have read 72 books! The majority of them have been read since October since I started my blog and bookstagram.
There is no frigate like a book
To take us lands away,
Nor any coursers like a page
Of prancing poetry.
This traverse may the poorest take
Without oppress of toll;
How frugal is the chariot
That bears a human soul!

For the coming year, I plan to have read at least 200 books because nothing beats sitting in a room with a good book, listening to music while lying on the floor for a couple of hours.

I wish I had more time to read but I plan to read as much as possible, maybe sixty books.

:roll: I'm aiming for 50 books (though, since I started reviewing books of others and joined the onlinebookclub, I’m already at 10 in the last couple of weeks :-)

I'm aiming low because I'm hoping to get to some of my longer to-read books (like Ulysses and some classic Poetry books). Besides, I’m also on author so I need to write too :-)
