I've signed up. And I've read 7 books so far this year, so if I keep this pace up I should reach the target.

Keith Kelly (nedkelly) Also I've just noticed...I really need to read smaller books! Haha! The last 2 I read where around 800ish pages long each.

Time for a few short ones I think! :)

Oh next read is The Wise Man's Fear...994 pages. I may struggle with this challenge!

Sarah Caffrey | 45 comments Keith if u buy some kids books (eg Ann and Barry) and read them to the new baby I think you could count them as part of ur 50 HA HA

message 18: by [deleted user] (new)

I'm up to 12 also, just started 13.

message 19: by [deleted user] (new)

I'm on 10. so I might go for it. I'll be reading another 10 with the monthly reads, and then my own usual nonsense, so why not?

Mae (goodreadscommae) | 43 comments I was thinking of trying... but I am reading Ulysses... that is taking me forever with all the rereading and all...

message 21: by Emma (new)

Emma L (oemmao) do you include audio books in your read for 2011 pile?, am thinking of starting listening to them when exercising, not sure if i will take to them though?
