I feel like I'm the only person I know who reads fast/reads a lot of books. I've set my 4 month summer reading goal at 60 books (15 a month) and was wondering if there are any other crazies out there doing this with me?

I'm hoping to get 50 books read this summer, if not more. You're not the only crazy one!

Well that's certainly good to know! :) I'm a book junkie.

Cassie (cbookbabblings) I'm a children's librarian, so I set my goal at 50 right now. I will probably up it later, because there are so many books I want to read!

Michelle (deckfullojokers) Wow! I'm happy if I read 50 books in a year! I am both a slow reader and a distracted reader...good for you guys! My goal is 16 for the four months...a book a week is good for me. :)

I'm aiming for at least 40 books for the challenge, but I'm hoping to surpass that :) Good luck with your goal!

Good luck everyone! :)

Amy (aquaintedwithbooks) | 1 comments I'm with Michelle--50 books would be an amazing yearly goal for me, but, realistically I've pick 15 books for the 4 months. I'm hopeful I'll get a few more in. Nothing better than reading in the summer!!

Angela I probably can't read that much this summer. With internships and studying, there's barely any time at all. :(

Klara (clara666) My goal is 50 books, but I am not sure I'll do it -> I read only in English and I read slow because it's not my native language.


message 11: by Erica (new)

Erica (ericareadslibros) I set my goal for 35. That's about 2 books a week. I should go read now, lol :)


message 12: by Jo (new)

Jo (jostrader) Since I am not taking classes this summer, I have set my goal at 50. I am probably crazy, but it seemed like a good number. Good luck, everyone!

Karsyn  (imzadi) Hi y'all! So cool to see a group here for this! :)

I joined the challenge, and am aiming for 75 books. This isn't a stretch for me, my normal book reading per month is 15-20, though the last 8 or so months it's been on the lower side of that, more like 12-16. But with this, and the Bout of Books, I'm confidant I'll easily hit my goal. :)

Glad to see there are others who want to read as much! I'll be rooting for ya!

I feel like I'm falling a bit behind already. Been getting everything ready for my son and daughter's baptism this coming Saturday and have been crazy busy. I'm shooting for 10 books during BoB though (insane, I know!) so that should get me caught up nicely.


message 15: by Lisa (new)

Lisa (destinyisntfree) I could probably do 50 in a perfect setting, if life stays calm, but with the kids being off for summer, I figured I would aim a little lower. I set mine for 25 officially, but hoping to do at least 40 or more.

Karsyn  (imzadi) How is the over 50 books group going? Anyone close, anyone completed?

I surpassed my goal of 75 on July 19th. I'm at 84 now, so I will at least hit 100 by the end of Sep.


message 17: by [deleted user] (new)

Wow! We actually had a crisis where I had to sell off over half of my books :'( It was so sad and still is. I haven't gotten much reading done at all and no blogging at all. I'm doing BOB 11 though, so maybe I'll get some read.

Karsyn  (imzadi) Did any of the over 50 ladies meet/surpass their goal?
