I don't care much for Audible but my goal is 2 books a week, 1 review a week (I'm already behind on that but mainly due to my own nitpicking at my reviews as I want them to be quality too).

I just need to look you in the eyes and tell you
You didn't help me make it"

This is a great goal. I generally read several books at a time, some for pleasure and one to review. I just finished a review yesterday and then happened to find a very short YA book to read for another review. With sickness rampant in my house I was able to read that second book between last night and today, it certainly helps me to meet my goals!

Good luck to you!

70 books is great goal. Do you tend to read a "regular" book while also having an audio book in process? I tend to listen to audio sporadically so I always have other books going too.

This year, I'm aiming to reduce my TBR list this by participating in the MountTBR challenge. I need 24 books (owned copies) to successfully reach Mount Blanc. So far, I've read five already!

I also want to participate in the Reading Women Challenge. :)

My goals are to read at least 100 books this year although with all my free time I'va already read 50 since January.

I also want to try and read something out of my comfort zone. I usually read fantasy or sci-fi books but I would like to try something different.

Reading something out of your comfort zone is a great goal. Some of my recent reviews have been that since I can get the book for free.
And yes, this extra time should lead to more reading😁

I'm not really sure what a good reading goal is for me this year since I'm just getting back into reading after having (almost) graduated college. I think I'm going to settle on a goal of reading (or listening to) 30 books this year. That certainly doesn't seem like a lot, but I want it to be an attainable number. And I've already started out this year pretty slow.

Goals should push us, but ultimately be accessible. You know your schedule and habits, so 30 sounds reasonable. Good luck!

My reading goals for this year are:
Read 30 regular books :tiphat:
Read 15 OnlineBookClub books (and post reviews) :techie-studyingbrown:
Finish at least a couple of series that I have started, but haven't finished!
These include: Shadowhunters, Discovery of Witches, Millenium, and Fallen

Also, is there a place yet to make this reading challenge for 2020 public, like on our profile? :eusa-think:
I see avatars with 2019, nothing with 2020 yet.

My goal for this year was 25 books, so about 2 a month. But now, I have more free time and I am already ahead of schedule, so I upped it to 40 books.
