Nancy Brady (minesayn) | 137 comments In 2018, I hope to read 140 books. Of these, I want to read at least 40 books that I own or have in my possession. I also hope to read 30 e-books on my Kindle and/or Nook. Another 20 books will be from ARC/giveaways.

Nancy Brady (minesayn) | 137 comments Thanks, Suzy. Now if I can only do it. I have been spending the last couple days, albeit intermittently (an hour here, an hour there), rearranging my books so I can see all the titles again. My husband has been building me new bookshelves and I hope to read most of my books through my own library of unread books. I think it is entirely possible IF I don't hit the library. Yeah, right! I volunteer there.

Nancy, good luck on your challenge. I have been doing the same thing as you-rearranging my book shelves so that I know which books I own.

Unfortunately, I live dangerously close to a library!


message 6: by Nancy (new)

Nancy Brady (minesayn) | 137 comments Me too. A block away. I certainly understand where you are coming from (probably the library).

Lol, wishing you a lot of strength in that case!

Nancy Brady (minesayn) | 137 comments As of the end of January, I have read 7 of 140 books (not the greatest of beginnings, but now that I have shelves arranged and de-cluttering basically completed, I should be back to reading except for those commitments of inputting a manuscript from hand into a word processing program).

Statistics:
7/140 books
1/20 ARC/giveaways
1/30 e-books
4/40 books owned
3 library books

Some books counted twice as they fit into several categories.

Sonya marie madden | 436 comments Good job


message 20: by Nancy (new)

Nancy Brady (minesayn) | 137 comments Thanks, Sonya. I hope I get to 140, but I doubt it considering the time left. On the other hand, it is the enjoyment of the books I am reading that matters.
