If given so much time this year, I may read more books which I can. I love reading books especially fiction books. I may not estimate how many books I may read this year but I probably read more.

I plan to read fifty books and honestly while they may sound like a modest goal, I still hope I can accomplish it. Between work and school, it'll be a fun challenge to strive to.

Last year I read a total of 12 books, so I thought I was pushing it when I set a goal of 52 for this year. I just finished #21 tonight, now I'm more addicted to reading than ever and planning to crush my goal.

I want to read 57 books. Of which I want to read at least 40 "old" books. Books that I had for at least one year. I have way to many unread books on my shelves.

Mine is set to 50, but I am already at 16! I think I am going to surpass it, but this is the first year I have actually put a "goal" in place. It is definitely keeping me motivated!

I have a question and maybe it has been answered already, but I am unable to find it. I have read 20 books already towards my goal. However, the tally is not moving. It shows I haven't completed a book and have a completion of 0%. When I look into these books, date read are all set in the year 2017. How do I fix this?

You need to first go into your user control panel (UCP) and under the profile tab it lets you imput and save your total reading goal. Once that is done, every book you add to your shelves when you are done reading it will automatically update your percentage total. I hope this helps! :D

I think I am too new yet. Only 2 days, so maybe that is why. Once I add a goal, will it account for all the books already read, or am I starting at zero?

I would like to read at least fifty books this year and hopefully I can expand my horizons in terms of genres.

Hmm... I see everyone wants to read a hundred books this year, I wouldn't like to rush trough a book every three days, so I'll say 24 is the goal for me.
