Rebecca NJ (njreader) | 31 comments I was really ambitious in 2014 and despite all intentions, I did not reach my 150+ books. I'll go for a smaller trip to reach higher in 2015. These books will be from my TBR personal collection piles.

Note: All of my books on the following shelves were in my possession prior to December 31, 2014 despite the date added to GR. Anything added after January 14, 2015 will be considered "new" and will not count. I had a few I received as gifts over the holiday I wanted to add to Goodreads and didn't get to it as quickly as I wanted to.

Thanks Bev!

Sam (aramsamsam) Usually I'd read 80 or 90 books a year, but only own half of them! So 60 is a fantastic number in my opinion. Good luck und happy reading!

Audiobooks and ebooks were my downfall in 2014. It's just so easy to check them out and have them downloaded onto my devices. I didn't add too many to my collection this year but I still have 1300 print books scattered throughout my house that I want to keep getting through.

Sam (aramsamsam) *gasp*


message 7: by Sam (new)

Sam (aramsamsam) Never again will I complain about my TBR. It's as tiny as 159 books. Lesson learned.

Rebecca NJ (njreader) | 31 comments And that's just my print books...we aren't even talking about my nook and kindle books. Yes, my name is Rebecca and I have a book addiction ;)

I found my long-lost sister! (Last count was around 1,100 print books, 95% unread...I'm not counting again, nor am I ever going to count what is on that darned Kindle!)

Rebecca NJ (njreader) | 31 comments Hi Michele! Nice to meet a long-lost sister :)

That total is completely unread. I haven't a clue of the amount of read books that are still boxed away. I had dreams of opening up my own used book store but I don't see that happening anytime soon so I've been going through the read books slowly and either trading them or donating to libraries for their used book sales.
