    For me, it's either reading or crafty time, so setting goals isn't really going to help me find more time. I love reading but I love my creative time too. I read about 40 books last year. Maybe this year I'll do better since I have a lot of travel coming up.

    I probably read around 200 books each year. My train commute is 1.5 hrs each way. I was spending a fortune at Amazon on books, then I finally found eReaders perks daily newsletterr. Books are free or very cheap. May be not the latest top ten, but lots of great reads.

    I finally settled on a goal for 2015

    120

    So 10 books a month

    I thought MOC might put me behind on my 10 books a month a but I'm currently on book number 15 so far this year - so very much on track!

    Lindzee - you might also try BookBub. There is an app for it and it is also available via web and email list. Books are tagged at discount prices and for free. It captures discounts from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, etc.

    I read in spurts. I could read about 100 books in one year, and then 24 in another. It's when the mood strikes me. Lately, I've been scrapping. LOL!

    I discovered audiobooks this year and I can get them digitally from the library! I don't have a good reads account, but I set a goal of 100 books and I'm currently getting through 2 a week! (Although, I'm probably slightly cheating since I'm rereading a series I really love.) I can "read" and scrap at the same time! Perfection!

    i do that sometimes too - some books i've "read", i actually listened to - but it's all good, right !? lol
    And i second BookBub - it's much better than EreaderPerks

    Hard for me to set a number because I read a lot of fan fiction as well as books... I will say 75 and I better hurry up because I've only read 6 so far (not including fan fic).

    I have set my self a goal of 52 Books in 52 weeks for the Goodreads 2015 challenge, although not off to a great start, yet to finish a book. I read more during the spring/summer months so hoping can catch up.

    Book Basset is also a great site/newsletter. She is also on facebook. She has a bunch of free books in a variety of genres each day. Plus her stories about her family and chickens are hilarious.

    I read 50 books last year -- I thought that was low and that I must have forgot some. But I guess I didn't. I've only read 5 so far this year, but I am almost done with 1 and reading 2 more actively. I'm not really setting a goal, just keeping track. :)
