I read two books a month and I guess that translates to around twenty four books by the end of the year.

My goal for 2018 is 24 books. Two books a month, I hope to exceed that goal.

My goal is to read at least a book a week, but I think I've already read 52 books this year. :)

In 2005 and 2016 I did over 200 books in each of the years, I believe (I didn't count), pretty sure every other year I do a 100 or so. For 2018 I have already done about 40 or 50 for H1 (wasn't counting), for H2, I should should be able to do worst case 40 and if the stars align maybe up to 75 or more (I intend to count). Reading is just the best there is, nothing like a new book or title.

200 books, I am very optimistic about that figure. Well, I would not feel sad if the goal is unmet, but it would help me to try my best.

Read goal this year is 120. I have done way above that especially in my high school days, so should be able to achieve this goal.

I don't have a specific number just that I want to get back reading as much as possible. I haven't read anything in a while so I'm happy to be reading like I used to before studies and work

I know I'm late to the party. This year so far I'v only read two books. My goal for the rest of the year is a measly eight books. Two a month is usually all I'm able to get around to.

Here's my question for those who are reading over 100 books a year: HOW?!? Tell me your tricks because I cannot read that many! My goal has always been 2 books a month. I have been very pleased with myself this summer because I have been reading 5-7 books each month!!

I am envious of all you quick readers! But for now, I will remain proud of myself for sticking with my 24 a year goal! Especially since I stopped reading for a few years, so this is a great place to start for me.

My goal for this year will be 500. I made it to 490 in 2017 so here's hoping I can fit another ten in.

My goal for this year is 35 books. I would like to have made it more, but time is not always a luxury. As of now, I am pretty much on track to meet that goal!

Well the year is more than half over. But I'll make the goal of reading 2 books each month of the rest of the year. So 10 books. Plus the 2 I've read this year so 12 total. That's so sad. I used to read that much in a month. Adulting sucks. Lol
