2018 Reading Challenge

New year, new goal. How many books do you intend to read this year?

Take our ultimate reading challenge and set up a new goal on your profile. At the end of the year, you can see if your goal was met. Good luck! :)

Going for 50 books this year. I got too busy for my 100 book goal last year, I think I got 47. With luck I’ll make time to read all the BOTDs I’ve got stored on my tablet and then some.

My goal for 2017 was 60. I reached and passed that.
I think I'll stick with 60, because I'm not in the mood for a hard challenge right now. Perhaps I'll stretch it a bit next year.
We are temporary creatures, and we know it--that's why we fear the dark, after all, that's why we build walls and light candles to keep it out.

I'm pretty sure I made my 100 books goal. I don't know that I can do a whole lot more, but I like to push myself. So, I'm going to go for 115!

I'm going for 48. I know I wanted my goal to be a multiple of 12 so I could have an even monthly goal. :p That's four books a month, which I should be able to handle. I would like to exceed that, though. We'll see, because I have a few 1,000+ page books on my list this year.

Happy New Year, everyone! :happy-cheerleadersmileygirl:

For this year, I'm planning on reading 100 books. This seems like a good number for me, especially since I want to try to focus on reading more quality books rather than quantity.

I'm not sure how many books I read last year! My goal will be 24, or at least two books per month. I would choose a higher number, but life has been throwing curveballs lately.

Don't know for sure how many I read last year. But I will keep count this year and set my goals from there.
