How many books have you read this year?

So far I have read 15 books this year. I am curious to how this compares to others reading. Those were all on my nook -- I got the nook in January and don't believe I read any hard books since then.

Re: How many books have you read this year?

  • I think I am at 37 for the year, but I am slowing waaaay down. I finished grad school and now that I'm a working stiff my schedule is a lot less flexible.

     So my pace is probably going to be a lot more like yours for the rest of the year. 

  • I believe I've read 25 books.  My goal for the year is 111, but I know I probably won't even come close to that.  My reading has picked up this past week, so that makes me happy.

  • I've read 48, I've had a bad couple weeks, just been busy and some drama in my personal life.  My original goal was 50 and I increased it to 75 and I'm really hoping for 100, we'll see how it goes.  I'm going to get more of an opportunity to listen to audio books on my commute so that should help.

    A whopping 18. I haven't read at all lately :(
  • I'm on like 44 or 45. My goal was 50. I'll hit it in the next 2 weeks or so. I start teaching again in 3 weeks, and won't have much time for recreational reading, so I may be lucky to get a few more in after that.

  • I'm at 40 this year.  My goal was 50 but now I'm thinking about bumping it up to 75.  I also include the audiobooks that I listen to though.

  • i'm on book 43 for the year.  I upped my goal from 50 to 75 and I'm slowing waaaay down now and have fallen behind for the first time this year.  Not sure I'm going to make it to 75, but will def pass 50 at least.

  • 64/100.  This month has been a really good reading month - if things keep going this well I might bump up my goal.

  • I've read 47 so far.  My goal was 50 books for the year, so I recently raised my goal to 75.  My reading time is going to slow down once the new school year starts though, so I am not sure I will make it.

  • I am at 35. I will say, I have chosen smaller books because bigger ones stress me out sometime. I really want to read some of the bigger ones on my list but they intimidate me.
