I usually aim for a solid 100. Over halfway there.

My reading challenge for 2017 is 30 books but I have a feeling that I am going to exceed it.

So many thing to do in a day and I'm thinking whether or not onto set a goal for this year. I may be really disappointed by the outcome to see that I did not reach even half my goal.

My goal is about 200 books and to expand my genres this year. So, far I am at about 90 or so. I have not counted in a while. However, I added more spiritual related books to list. These are books that I don't typically read, but have found I really enjoy some of them.

I wanted to set a goal but then I decided to just read as many as I can, probably just surprise myself.

Well, my reading style is quite unpredictable so I'm not gonna push it too much, initially I set it up to 10 but when I achieved that in about two months, I increased to 20. Will probably do so again if I see that I accomplish it before the year runs out. That's not exactly setting a goal but, uh, lemme just leave it like that. :lol: :techie-reference:

It's so nice to see people set 100 books and even more as their reading goal. I wish I could do as well, but I've got a really busy daily schedule. In fact, I've noticed most people in my field of study lose their reading habit. I struggle not to but I still can't set goals that are pretty much unrealistic in my life. I'm sticking with ten. I think I can deal with that.

My objective is 30 books! Although here I don't have any, in my goodreads page I'm 2 ahead of schedule, so that is working well for me :D

This is my first year where I have set a goal. I may have set it on the higher side but nonetheless I set it at 120. Even working full time, raising kids, and participating in sporting events. So far I have 84 down. We will see.

There is a time i had said that i will be reading one book per week, meaning 52 books in an year. I am yet to confirm this but i am trying.The idea is that i should at all the time be found reading something.

Well, I planned to read 100 books this year, but I've already read 117. I haven't added them to my shelf here because, while I'm a long-term member, I've only really been active since this July. I'll start fresh with this challenge on the forum next year.
