message 1: by Andrea (new)

Andrea Thank you! I used to be a very slow reader about two years ago, but now I'm trying my best to get to my ideal number (100) while still giving the books the proper attention they deserve. Hopefully in a couple of years I'll get there.

Cleo Wow! Excellent! You're a reading machine! Are you going to attempt more or less in 2015?

message 3: by Andrea (new)

Andrea Thank you! :) I had to reduce to 60 though - there was just no time for reading lately. I will probably stay at 60 next year and see what happens. You?

message 4: by Cleo (new)

Cleo I'll probably up mine by 5 books to 65. Or maybe I'll stay at 60 ..... I'm not sure. I have plans to read more children's books than this year which will speed me up, but I also want to read more non-fiction which will slow me down.

How are you doing with The History of the Ancient World: From the Earliest Accounts to the Fall of Rome? Are you wanting to continue in January?

message 5: by Andrea (new)

Andrea Yes, I am still eager to continue my nonfiction escapades, including The History of Ancient World. I'm slowly doing my notes. There is also a very interesting article on King Tut in recent Smithsonian magazine I'm clipping in.
