Nola Good luck Jenny. You'll probably read twice that many at the rate you're going :)

message 2: by Jeanette (new)

Jeanette I just made 55 in 2015, so decided to play it safe this year - pity we can't count the one's we're writing & the ones we read through for friends or as editors :)

message 3: by Nola (new)

Nola Yes that would be good. Haven't decided yet whether to do the Goodreads challenge again this year, though it was a good way of keeping track of what I read. I managed 120, but that was because 81 were picture books and 11 were Nancy Drews :) Hoping to read more big-people books this year.

Adele Jones Just 55? I'm not even admitting how few I read in comparison! Well done, Jenny.

message 5: by Jeanette (new)

Jeanette You're a busy woman Adele. I think I started with 40 a few years ago, then 50 - and sailed through those - but the anthologies took a lot of my attention towards end of 2015 , so was almost touch and go there. But I do love a deadline :)

message 6: by Adele (new)

Adele Jones Yes, deadlines can be remarkable motivation, though I'm pretty sure if my busy was stacked up against yours, you'd trump me. :) Enjoy your reading.

message 7: by Adele (new)

Adele Jones Well done, Super Jeanette!!

message 8: by Nola (new)

Nola Super Jenny indeed :)

message 9: by Jeanette (new)

Jeanette Thanks Adele and Nola :) I'm such a sucker for deadlines - the reading challenge has really got me back into reading books :)
