I will set mine at 20. I have read around 5 books already this year so I think that will be an attainable goal for me :D

I've set mine at ten, am hoping to surpass that as I normally read a lot. But I don't have as much time for it lately, so I'll see how that goes.

I have set my 2017 reading goal at 20. As always I hope to read more, but I do like to take my time especially when reading for review.

Can my reading goal be updated later if I surpass it before the end of the year?
Do the books I have already added to my bookshelf this year before setting the reading goal not count towards the total read?

last year I read way more than I thought, so this year I plan to read at least 250, although I know it will be higher

I go through periods of reading a whole lot, and then my kindle battery dies and I lose momentum. I'd like to shoot for 10 novels in addition to the bible study and devotional time that is also important to me.

I'm shooting for 100 full-length books, but I might count individual short stories rather than collections.

I want to read at least 100 books by the end of the year. I have been been interested in books before, but now you will almost always see me with one in my hands.

My goal is to read 2 book a month, I normally like thriller and suspense fiction.....probably I should be more adventurous and try other genre like non-fiction true story and history

My goal for this year is currently 49 books. It started out lower in January, and I have been increasing it accordingly. I hope you all achieve your personal goals, and that you enjoy getting there!

I plan to read 100 books this year. Am around 10 books behind schedule as I am only done with 50 or so in the middle of August. Hopefully I can devote more time to it and get to 100!
