message 6: by Justin (new)

Justin How do you read so much??? Teach me your ways lol

message 7: by Ryan (new)

Ryan Justin: I think Brad uses an app, Natural Reader. At least, that's what I was recommended when I asked.

message 8: by Michele (new)

Michele Wow!! Good luck on your goal!

message 9: by Jessaca (new)

Jessaca Willis That's more than a book a day! *mindblown*

message 10: by Bradley (new)

Bradley I used to use Natural Reader but now I use Kybook. It seems to have fewer breakdowns. :)

And thanks! I'll make my goal. I'm pretty sure of it. :)

message 11: by Vicky (new)

Vicky N. Damn, you're a beast Bradley! Good luck, although we both know you don't need it!
Happy new year!

message 12: by Ryan (new)

Ryan I wish I had a fraction of your focus. I mix it up between audiobooks @ 2x speed with an epub/pdf to follow along, and paper books and still manage just 15-20 books per year. It's certainly better than nothing, but could definitely be better.

Eclectisism Incarnate I couldn't read that many if that's all I ever did. *lol*

I tip my hat to you!

message 14: by Bradley (new)

Bradley Ryan: focus is everything. Even for me. I've been working my whole life on improving it, so I hear you. It's sometimes hard.

And thanks, everyone!

Cameron Currie You're a machine! Keep it up!

message 18: by Andrew (new)

Andrew Hiller You're goal is over ten times my goal. I feel so deficient lol

message 19: by Bradley (new)

Bradley It's okay, Andrew. I know I'm a mutant. :) An anomaly. A freak of nature. :)

message 21: by Scarlett (new)

Scarlett Readz and Runz....Through Novel Time & Distance Have a fantastic reading year :)

message 22: by Andrea (new)

Andrea Marzocchi How could you possibly have read 33 books (many of which more than 500 pages long) in these first 20 days of January?!?! I am amazed! But... man you should eat sometimes!

message 23: by Bradley (new)

Bradley I can because I have been. :) For years. :)

I'm averaging around 17,000 pages a month.

But it's not a sprint, you know. It's a marathon. Slow and steady. :)

Oh, and it helps that I LOVE reading.

message 24: by Carra (new)

Carra 450!!!!!! *faints*

message 25: by Cameron (new)

Cameron Currie I thought I was a mutant for reading a book a week! I average about a tenth of what you do. Keep it up... and if you ever run low on reading material let me know! :)

message 26: by Bradley (new)

Bradley Considering that even at my rate I'll never be able to read more than a fraction of a fraction of all the books I want to read, I think I'll be fine, but if you believe I'll really love something, just holler.

Asking harms no one. :)
