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.
There are losses we don't move past, no matter how hard we try. Some wounds, once inflicted, bleed forever underneath the skin. All we can do is learn to live with them.

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!

My goal for 2017 was 100. I have read 121 books, but I will stick with 100 again.

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.
