I really enjoyed last years thread for reading, so I am going to start this one.

How many books are you planning to read this year? Setting any goals or just taking it as it comes?

I am in the middle of one now, and have 4 set aside.

I would like to read around 20. I think it will be possible with my other assignments and work!

Last year I put 52 but ended up reading 74. Not sure how much time I'll have this year so I'm putting 52 this year too.

I will go for 10 again this year, with work and studies that is all the time I get to read.

Thanks for starting the thread!

Not sure really- it depends how much I like a book.

If I really, really enjoy it I will sit until 3/4am and read it and I will finish it within a day or two (assuming its a normal length book 2-300 pages)

If I enjoy it but can only read it in small chunks- it can take me upto two weeks to read it

Im shooting for 25 books this year and now that I have my book collection (some i have yet to read because they were put in storage shortly after i got them) it should be pretty easy. Last year I only read a handful of books so, 25 is a pretty big number for me but im sure it can be done!

i don't have any perticular number-goal this year, but i want to read more books in norwegian and some "classics" (not old books, but more modern "classics")

I am going for an even 100 this year. I do a lot of waiting around so get to read quite a bit, which I really enjoy. Hoping to come across some decent books this year.

Last year I set my goal at 30 but finished at 23. This year my goal is 25 and I've read 4 so far. It will be really tough with classes again (that's what set me off track last year) but by cutting down on tv time I think I can do it.
