I originally set my goal at 40 but I think it will be easy to surpass. I never really have kept track of how many books I was reading until now. But I have been reading 1 or 2 a week since I joined OnlineBookClub.org.

So far I already read 58 or 59 books this year, so I'm setting a target of 250 for this year.

My goal is 50 books. But since I joined this March only and then updated my bookshelves, it shows that I have already completed my reading challenge! I have actually read 21!

I've set a goal for 200 this year. I'm up to 153 so far but I feel like I'm getting into a slump :( I have so many books to choose from and it's overwhelming to figure out what to read next sometimes

I'm going to start out small and set my goal at 50. I don't think I would have time for more than that. Unless I can count children's books that I read to my grandson. He loves Clifford the Big Red Dog.

I have been doing a reading challenge on another site for a few years now and try to increase my count by 10 each year. I had made it up to 60 one year and then fell off the wagon and could barely make it to 20 for a few years. But this year I have already passed my 20 book goal! Hopefully I will make it back up to 60 in the next few yers! :techie-studyinggray: :techie-studyinggray: :techie-studyinggray:

This is my first time setting a reading goal. I will try for 30, but hope to exceed that.

This year I challenged myself to read 50 books! So far I've read 17! I've gotta step up my game if I'm going to really meet my challenge!

I went through a vicious reading slump last year and only finished 47 books, but I'm hoping to go back to my usual goal of 120 this year.

I'm not sure if I can do reading challenges anymore. I don't like to play number goals on myself. Although I do love to read and I will read many, for now I have not set a goal.

I took me a while to get there, but I reached my goal. I had to keep the goal small due to paying attention to school. I'll probably be able to set a higher goal once I'm done with school for good.

I think I'm a little late to jump on this bandwagon, seeing as the year is nearly half-way through, but I might go for it anyway!
