This year I'm aiming for 200 books. I know it seems like a lot but I'm pretty positive :mrgreen:
This is probably about how many I read last year. I didn't count them so I'm not sure. I think I'll set my goal at 200 and see how I do :)

My goal this year is 52, just for pleasure. I plan to read more than that when I add in school books and review books.

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! :)
I didn't want to overcommit to reading this year, as it can make it a bit of a chore, so I went for 50. However, I'm already onto number 19, so I think I'm going to beat this target pretty easily!

I know it's low, but I'm going for 25 this year! I've had a tough time managing to read with my work and school schedule, but have been trying to read a minimum of one a month recently.

I'm new here and haven't thought of a goal until now. My Goodreads challenge in 2017 was 65 and I surpassed it with 123. My goal for 2018 is 100. I have to look at my profile here. I didn't see goal setting. Definitely have to set one ! Thank you 😉

My goal last year was 21 so this year I'm going to up it to 26. Hopefully life doesn't get in the way!

My goal is 120. I think 10 books a month from January is doable. I'll try to remember to add them to my bookshelves too!

My goal so far is only 50 books. I want to enjoy reading this year without the pressure of time and commitment. Some days, I get so hunged up with a book I can’t get myself to read a new one immediately afterwards.

I'm starting low, I put my goal at 24. I prefer to stay low and get over the barrier instead of trying too hard and getting nowhere :) I'm also a Computer Engineering student so there's much more that I have to read other than normal books haha

I'm going for 25 this year! I'm a Finalist at university so I need to balance reading for pleasure and reading for exams. I'm on my 4th book so doing well so far. Only time will tell if this will last...

Last year I finished 112. I anticipate being busier this year and want to enjoy, not rush through, books so I'm going for a much smaller goal of only 36 and hoping to have time to bust it to smithereens.

I'm hoping 50. I have my State Exams in Summer but once they're over I plan on reading to my heart's content.

Since this is my first time to set a goal like this, I think I'll go with 50. That's almost one a week. If I reach that goal I can up it next year.

:techie-studyingbrown: I've been averaging 1 book a week on the e-reader and 1 book 1-2 nights on audio. If I don't lose my nerve, motivation, and momentum...I suppose I can read 208 books this year. I've never read even this many books back in high school. But now I'm getting older and want this wise demeanor to kick in :)
