My reading goal for this year is 25 books. That was my goal last year but I only reached 20 books. I'm off to a good start so far this year though and know I'll reach my 25 books. This is what I've read so far: 1.“New Moon” (2nd book in the Twilight Saga) – Stephanie Meyer (561) 2.“The Idiot Girl's Action-Adventure Club” - Laura Notaro (225) 3.“Sunday at Tiffany's” - James Patterson (309) 4.“Love the One You're With” - Emily Giffin (342) 5.“Of the Wing – The Legend Awakes” - Georgia Anne Butler (204) 6.“Autobiography of a Fat Bride” - Laurie Notaro (252) 7.“Seven Minutes to Noon” - Kate Pepper (307) 8.“Five Days in Summer” - Kate Pepper (304)

Wow, that's crazy... 75 books. I don't have a count per se, since I just read whatever I like. I read books in "series" so my goal for the year is to finish all the books published for that series. So right now my goal is to complete either: 1. The Cat Who... series 2. Piers Anthony's Incarnations of Immortality series or maybe his Xanth series Haha, that's a lot of reading .

I do not currently have a reading goal for books I would like to read for pleasure, but I do set short term goals for books that I want (or have to) read for my socials studies. It's such a lot of reading work that I don't currently read for things other than that.

Oh I think you wanted to read 75 books... because that's what I saw at the beginning of the post :) I dont make targets for reading in quantity, just try to read when I have time and enjoy a book. Till now I haven't read much... only 4 books :( - Good luck for your goal...
