I did 52 once and that was awesome, but I've acquired other hobbies since then so I'm thinking maybe 26 this year.

Last year my goal was 150 and I end up 168. I think I’m still going to stick to 150 as my goal. It gets kinda busy with my two jobs but I will try. I just LOVE to read!

Originally, my goal for 2018 was 12 books. Having several under my belt and no intention of slowing down, I think I'll go for 40.

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'm hoping to get 100 books this year. I haven't really read much since I graduated from college, but I'm willing to try and make this goal.

I am getting started on this challenge a few months in and am almost embarrassed with my number after reading some of the rest of your goals. I am going for 20. I know compared to the group, that seems like a small amount. If i think back to the beginning of the year, I can honestly say I have read 2 so 18 more by the end of the year should be doable and who knows, I might surprise myself and crush that total.

I originally set my target to 12 but as I’ve already reviewed 8, I’ve upped it to 30.

Good Luck with reaching your goal. I would love to be able to read often enough to set a goal like that but my family may have other ideas.

I work 60+ hours a week, so I don't always have the time to read as much as I want. My official goal this year is 30, but my secret real goal is 40.

I generally read about five books a week so I am going to say I'll aim for about 240-250 this year.
