Pam Baddeley | 1294 comments Just opening my thread to record reads in 2019. As in the four years to date, I will set myself an official target on Goodreads.

I managed 100 books comfortably this year, but given work on editing my own book definitely will not manage 150 so I will stick to 100 again.

Norton Beckerman. (nortsb) | 97 comments I'm reading all the time for work and pleasure. The material I read for work has to be read, and there's usually more than I can get to reasonably. My pleasure reading is a different story (Ha, Ha). I like books to fall in my lap, to appear, to look interesting when I go to the library, to pick up a suggested read, to read what's being read on Goodreads, BUT I don't plan my pleasure reading. It takes the pleasure out of it.
