How many books have you read so far this year?

challenge-booksThanks to Goodreads, it’s easy to keep track of the number of books I read each year.  I do the Goodreads Reading Challenge each year, which allows me to set a goal for the number of books I want to read, and to keep track of the books I’ve finished.

So far this year, I’ve completed 49 books.  My goal for the year was just 52 – one per week. I’m quite a bit ahead of schedule, so I can’t wait to see how many books I am able to read this year.

Do you set goals for the number of books you hope to read?

    I’ve been wondering if there’s a way to show a re-read of a title I’ve already got on my GoodReads reviews. During my book slump I found myself reading the Phryne Fisher books again, and some others. I don’t bother to “challenge” myself to read; to me, it’s like breathing or eating…only more important than those.

    As far as fresh books, so far this year I’ve read 128, not counting a few I started and bailed on. I notice I read more and more, as I sleep less and less.
