Zita H. K. | 406 comments Now I start at 150 and see how it will evolve. Usually I have months when I read a lot of books, and then those when I manage to read only a few because of work and studies. And typically I read more books at once.

Cassandra | 5832 comments Wow, Zita! You're such a power reader. I love how you said after you completed your original goal that you would read "just a litle extra" and then went on to more than double your original challenge. Congratulations! What do you think your goal will be for 2015?

Thanks :)! I think I will try 150-200 again, because normally I have really strong months (when I read a lot of books with no problem) and than just "ok" months...so I don´t want to set my first goal too high. And I never know how many tasks I´ll have at work, or how much work I´ll have at the university (with the work I also studying).
And thank you once again for the encouragement :-D!

And good luck with your reading challenge, you're so close, I'm sure you can do it! And how many books will be your goal for 2015?


message 48: by Cassandra (new)

Cassandra | 5832 comments Yeah, that makes a lot of sense! It's so nice to meet a goal and then be able to go above and beyond, rather than falling short. My reading is really dependent on my workload at university as well. What do you study?

I'll go for 105 books again next year, but try to include a few more long books. I did read quite a few longer books this year, but sometimes I worried that they were getting me off track. Now I know that other shorter books make up for it. :)

Yeah, I always prefer a positive result, which I thankfully manage with reading challenges yet :).
I usually read the book which just catches my eye, book which I have mood for, or books to review. And I always read at least three books at once, ideally different genres. It seems to me that both short books and long books have their advantages - short books read quick, we know the end soon and we can start with others; with longer books we can spend more time with them and after reading, we can say "we did it" :).
And about me, now I am studying librarianship and information studies, and I already have a master's degree in political science and modern history, and of course working in the library.
