Dolly (dollymart) | 138 comments In 2009 I finished 110 books,
in 2010 I finished 105 books,
in 2011 I finished 141 books, and
in 2012 I finished 115 books.

For the most part I just count "my" books here. Since I've read over 1000 books each year for the last three years with our girls, I don't count the majority of those. However, we are starting to read longer books, so I may start to count more of them. Let's see how I do this year...

Doris (dorisb) | 68 comments I understand about reading aloud to others... I also don't count those, nor do I count those which I only read parts of. Congratulations on your reading lists for the past several years!

Crystal | 21 comments I read stories as part of my job. I can only imagine what our totals would be if we counted all our story time books with our children!! I did create a shelf for our stories together. They love seeing the numbers grow!!

Dolly (dollymart) | 138 comments I resolved to review every book I read with our girls on Goodreads and it has become a bit of an obsession, I admit. I am amazed by how many books we read together. I'm not sure how much longer it will last - they are growing up so fast. But I love that we can look back and see all of those books - all the time we spent snuggling and reading together.

Just wanted to say I have also read The Familiars and loved it!

Hopefully it will last. My oldest is in 6th grade and will not let me miss a storytime at home. We just finished a great book called Pickle by Kim Baker about pulling practical jokes at school (clean ones). Have fun and enjoy every moment!!

If it doesn't last with reading the entire story, it may go to listening to you read a segment, then borrowing the book to read it themselves. (This has been my experience with my 2 daughters.)

Dolly (dollymart) | 138 comments That's a good idea!

Dolly (dollymart) | 138 comments 100 done! And I finished more than a month ahead of last year. I hope to get at least 20-30 more.
