Tricia | 352 comments Is anybody else doing the 2012 reading challenge? If so, what is your goal? How close/far are you from your goal? I set my goal this year at 45 books and have completed 28, so I'm about 62% done. I'm thinking I will have to revise my original goal. Do you think you will reach yours?


Dina Hekal (Deeeh) | 441 comments I'm doing it and I set my goal at 100 and I've only completed 2 :/ so I have a long road ahead of me.

I want to read 100 books and have read 46 books thus far! 46% done! Btw Tricia I'm going to give you some points for adding some good topics!


Tricia | 352 comments Thanks, Scott, points are always great, but I really just enjoy being able to discuss books and book related topics with like-minded people. I live vicariously through the interent, it seems, and don't have the opportunity to discuss books and reading elsewhere, especially with such a diverse group of people. (My public, town and county, libraries bite the big one). The group you have created is great, affording me, and it seems many others, the ability to voice our opinions, play fun games, and share without fear of being snubbed or loooked-down upon.

And 46 books already! That's amazing! You've already blown my orignal goal out of the water. I think if I read any more than I already do I would never find time to sleep, and believe me, nobody likes me when I haven't gotten enough sleep!

100 books is definitely a big goal, though I think I saw a few with 300 or more. I always like to think as the goal as just something to try and attain... Great if I do, but oh well if I don't. Fortunately, we're only in the beginning of March and you have a long time to catch up if you want to. Besides, it's not the quantity of the books we read, but rather the quality of the enjoyment we get from reading them!

Well said! I wish everyone good luck on their challenges! I think reading is more about the journey than the destination! It doesn't matter how many books you have read. What matters is of you enjoyed reading them :) Besides it's only March!

Eh, no failing regardless if goals are met or not, just reading adventures!

you're right it's about the contents of each book I read and the enjoyment not about how many books I read.

Very true!

Last year I did 60, I am currently 4 books ahead for the 100 goal so I am good :)

I am letting myself enjoy A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1) by George R.R. Martin

ohh that's good! I'm reading blood sacrifice from vampire cademy series.

How is that book?


Karina (2187) I hate it I am so busy with school that I havent have much time to read. Every single time that I finally get everything done and think "I can finally read!" I start reading where I left off and end up falling asleep after only reading a few lines >.<


Morgan (morgzsydney) | 43 comments Really interesting :) I am usually not one for fantasy, but I am liking this!

I can't believe some people's goal is like 360 books! That's basically one book a day!


Sherri Arnold | 21 comments My goal is 200 books. I've read 60 so far so I think I will meet the goal.

I guess it depends what kind of books you read! If you read kid's book/picutre books you can easily complete your goal!

Marni (WonderWmn999) My goal this year is 100. I'm behind at having only read 16. Hoping to get that number up really soon. I know by the end of the night I'll be at 17! :)

Well last year I read 100 and something but i started the challenge late in the year so i figured 250 would be enough this time around. (:

I just like to challenge myself so I set goals for myself. Sometimes i put a time limit, like by the end up today i have to get this much done or by the end of the week I have get all these done. I think that is one of the reasons I get so many books read. Lately though i haven't had as much time as I used to.


Jay That's cool I get a lot of books I wish my library didn't have a 25 hold limit


Karina (2187) That sucks!! According to the librarians we are allowed to get up 100 if we wanted...not sure someone would actually do that considering the fact that they only have two weeks to read and return.


Jay Yeah it does I can't order any more books because I have too many holds
