Reading far

My One and Only (Hqn)Enough About Love The Tapestry of Love Nickel Plated Pictures of You Home to Woefield: A Novel Passport through Darkness: A True Story of Danger and Second Chances Fallen Grace Mad Love Girl, Stolen (Christy Ottaviano Books) Blue Delirious Sukkwan Island: A Novella from Legend of a Suicide  The Secret Life of Sandrina M.Before I Fall     

Sometimes I wish I could read faster. Like a lot of book lovers, I am easily distracted by a shiny new cover. Wait until BookExpo America next month. BEA is at the Javits Center, which is the size of a football field. A football field filled with books of every genre. It will be like being a kid in a candy store. Can't wait!!

So how has my reading progress been? According to GoodReads, I've read 15 books towards my goal of 75. At this pace, I will probably only read 60 books. But it's always good to have goals. Seventy-five books is a lofty goal. I did this because I want to outdo myself. I locked myself into two reading challenges. With the outdo yourself challenge, I'm going for the I'm on fire level. Translation, I have to read 16 plus more books than last year. I read 49 books last year, and I know I can read more than that. I also signed up for the 2011 YA Reading challenge. I'm aiming to read 20 YA novels.

So far, I've read 6 YA books and 9 adult books. I'm certain I can hit 20 YA books. But my overall reading goal will take some time. What about everyone else? What are some of your reading goals?


  1. What a fun way to display what you have read so far. I may try this for a post later this week. I love looking at all the covers together. I made my goal 100 this year - up from 72 last year. It's going to be a stretch.

  2. 100? Lots of luck to you. One day that is going to be my goal.
