Reading Goal

Musing Mondays2

This week’s musing asks:

Do you have a reading goal for the year, such as __ books? Why or why not?

At the beginning of January I set the goal to read 100 books this year. Normally I average between 65 to 80 a year, but I decided to set the bar higher for this year. This goal breaks down to 8 – 9 books per month. In May I finished 12 books and that brings the total to 48 for the year. The daily challenge is to read 100 pages, regardless of what I’m reading. Sometimes I get distracted by work or other personal reasons. Weekends I might end up reading less because of dog shows and hiking trips. I try to maintain a daily average over a month’s period at 80 to 100 pages.

  1. Cool! Good luck with your 100 books goal! Seems like you’re gonna make it!😀

  2. Wow, 100 books!! I can only dream of such numbers. I read an average of 35 books a year. It’s not a struggle to read. It’s a struggle to find TIME to read.
    When I think of all the books I want to read…I get in a panic, because I’m afraid I will never succeed in reading them all :o(
