There's no goal too big or small! But share with us here how many books you'd like to read this year! You can always adjust up or down as the year goes on!

My goal is 40. I was way under last year. Had some family stuff and wrote a LOT. But this year I really want to hit this. :)

Lori Meehan (lorimeehan) | 28 comments I’m lowering my goal to 100 since I can’t seem to get to 125 😂


message 4: by Millie (new)

Millie (milliefromphilly) | 36 comments 50 is my goal again but I have another goal of getting more sleep and as I read in bed at night my goals may be incompatible


message 5: by Lady (new)

Lady (shyalwayz) | 253 comments My goal is 150 again. Hopefully I can complete it this year.


message 6: by Brittany (new)

Brittany | 1 comments My goal is 250 this year I fell short of 300 so I felt I should lower the goal a little bit.


message 7: by Barbara (new)

Barbara Rogers | 3 comments In 2017 my goal was 200 books and I exceeded that. I read 222. However, I found I wasn't savoring them as I'd like. So, I've decided to read fewer and enjoy them more! This year's goal is 150.

Such a good point! Savoring is a good thing!!

I think so. I had almost begun to feel that I was just reading for a goal and not reading for enjoyment. I have a blog where I post my reviews, so I will still read a lot -- I'll just not read quite as many. Didn't want it to start to feel like a 'job' rather than a recreation.

Jennifer Lubow | 15 comments Last year I did 301 books but I started working a 2nd job and it was HARD to get in those last few books at the end...So this year I will be setting it for 150 :-)

Adria's Musings (adria03) | 1 comments I'm going to go with 55 since I was a tad too ambitious last year and didn't quite meet my goal. Lol.

Erica | 1 comments My 2017 goal was 348 which I exceeded so I'm going with the same this year.

You guys are all amazing!! I'm so excited to see all the books we're going to read this year!!


message 14: by Amanda (new)

Amanda Bordner | 1 comments My goal this year is 50!! I didn't really stick with my goal last year and didn't do a good job of keeping track of when I started/finished a book. So that's where I'll start this year!

Jane (janejonesreviews) | 50 comments My goal is 100, a nice round number.

message 17: by Pamela (new)

Pamela (pamelalynne) | 6 comments I almost met my goal of 100 last year, but just didn't have as much time to read as I'd intended. Hoping to hit 125 this year!

Doe965 My goal is 60 since I missed my goal last year.


message 29: by Rakisha (new)

Rakisha (rakishabpl) For the past two or three years, I had lowered it to 100 because I hadn't been making my 125 goal. However, I've also not made my 100 book goal either but I will persist!
