This year is the first that I’ve kept track of how many books I’ve read. I decided to set a Goodreads goal of 125 books. Soon after I increased my goal to 150 books. I’ve recently increased my goal again, to 200 books. I knew that I was a fast reader. I knew I read a lot. I didn’t realize just how fast and how much! 

2013 Reading Challenge
You have read 87 books toward your goal of 200 books.
Great work, you’re 19 books (9%) ahead of schedule.

Have another great week everyone!

  1. Wow! 200 books is awesome. I'm a really slow reader and often when I read on the weekends or in the evening I fall asleep so my best bet is reading at lunch and I can usually only get in 40-50 pages. Audio definitely helps though! I've had my eye on the Allende! Been meaning to read more of her books for years.


  2. I don't know if I'll make it…but I do have a good feeling about it 😉 Your lifestyle is so different from mine Trish, it's hard to read with little ones around. I remember those days well! 😉 I'm a big fan of Allende, I'm hoping this is a good one!


  3. Wow! 200 books is amazing. For the last few years, I've read around 110 books. I can't really imagine trying to read more than that 🙂 Looks like you had a good week. I can't wait to see what you thought of Girls of Atomic City.


  4. Wow, you are a superfast reader!!! I've read an embarrassingly lowww amount of books this year, but they've all been pretty awesome. Can't complain too much!


  5. I love reading goals and challenges. Congratulations on meeting yours and setting new ones! Maus seems like a book I should read.


  6. What a great goal, I'm just a few books ahead of you at the moment!Have a fab reading week!Shelleyrae @ Book'd Out


  7. Wow you are rockin your goal! I'll be freakin amazed if I make my goal of 100 books, I'm reading like a snail, 31 books so far :(Am I the last person on earth yet to read The Great Gatsby? I wanted to get to it before the movie but don't like my chances lol. Have a great week and happy, happy reading 🙂


  8. Ah, I smiled when I saw Bob Ross! Such a lovely man. Anyway, 200 books is an amazing goal!The book by Isabel Allende seems very nice and the Anthony Marra book looks very beautiful. Is it a good book? Have a great week, kind regards,


  9. You do get a lot of reading done and all of them are books I don't know about. I will likely be increasing my GoodReads goal as I approach it but right now it is set for 200 and I am at 95. It's not that I'm a fast reader; it is simply that I don't do much else but read. Come see what I read and happy reading!


  10. As long as you're reading you're in good shape girl! 🙂 LOL, you don't like your chances..that made me laugh! The Great Gatsby is such a short book, you can get to it, I promise! 😉 I wanted to re-read it before the movie as well, which is why I made it one of my read-a-thon books!


  11. Good job on your GoodReads challenge! All of those books you've pictured look great, a few more to add to my list! Hope you have a great week.


  12. You're reading like a train (on full speed)! I'm at 64 books for this year – but I haven't set a goal.Looking forward to seeing what you thought of Sisterland. I've been wondering whether to ask for it for review, but haven't so far.


  13. I've kept track of titles I've read since 7th grade, but have never set a goal to read so many in a year. This year I set my Goodreads at 50 and already bumped it up to 60. I'm counting on making that during summer and bumping it again! Reading all my favorite book bloggers keeps me going! Some good titles I'm finding.


  14. Ok, I'm officially intrigued by A Constellation of Vital Phenomena. Look at those pretty covers drawing me in again! I'm off to check it out. :)Have a great week and I hope you love all of your books!
