    I'll be doing this for the 3rd year running xx

    2013 was 250 and I hit it spot on (this was a bad year health wise for me and I was laid up a lot)
    2014 was 150 and I'm reading my 172nd book right now

    In 2015 I want to aim for more of a balance between scrapping/reading so I might aim for 100 books in 2015

    Wow! these are huge goals! I hadn't thought about setting one on GoodReads...maybe I'll add that to my list for later today.

    I failed miserably in 2014 - my goal was 50, and assuming I finish what I'm reading right now, I will have read 33. So I haven't decided if I will shoot for 50 again, or lower it a bit.

    Gosh, I have no idea how many books I have read through 2014. It started of good, but right now I am not reading anymore. To much cleaning up in the house and on my computer....

    I'm on my 4th year of the Goodreads Challenge, I think. I'm planning to set a goal of 100 again. I listen to books while I scrap and then read when I can, so I tend to make it to 100 pretty easily.

    I only read 11 this year, sadly. I want to read more and think 25 is a good goal for me.

    I usually set mine for around 30-40 books a year and I always hit those. I'll probably shoot for 40 this year. I've read 48 so far this year and have 2 more that are almost done.

    I saw a bunch of my FB friends make their Goodreads goals! I definitely applaud that effort. But, for me, I have enough tasks in life to account for, so reading is one that I prefer to just take it as it comes. If I am lucky enough to carve out some time to read then I am glad, but if life gets in the way and I read less at certain times, I'd rather not stress about not achieving a goal. I discover Audible in 2014 and it's making it much easier for me to read more, and I am happy to see my list of read books grow through that library!

    I agree!! I become a stress chicken when I set a goal and Idon't make it....

    I'm going to shoot for 15. I've had a tough time reading the past year so I'm going to be gentle on myself. I listen to books in the car, housekeeping, and yard work. I can't listen while scrapping though. I'd rather get more scrapping done this year than reading!! LOL.

    I did 80 books in 2015 but ended up having a great reading year, coming in at 113 books as of tonight! So, I may aim for 90 this year as I'm not sure that over 100 is likely in 2015!

    I set mine for 50 this year. First year I have actually set it. Looking forward to tracking - I have been bad about that in the past!

    I'm probably going to set my goal at 15 books for 2015. I barely read 6 whole books in 2014. Read parts of LOTS more.
