I try to maintain a rate of one book per week. This will be the first year I've failed since 2008.

Yes, many plays and very short books.
>>
>>7321202

Didn't have a goal. I'm at 77 books by now. I'd set it to a hundred but I'll probably fail then.

I suppose I read less than most people here. I try to keep my own pace.
>>
>>7321270

2013 was a sick year for you, huh?

Do you all have full time jobs? I've read ~80 books this year, and I'm sure it comes down to having a part-time job now instead of a full 40 hour work week.

>>7321210
Sebastian doesn't count.
He's in the hospital, thus he can spend the whole day reading.
>>
>>7321319
I've read 60 and have a work day of around 10 hours for college.

Still? What's the matter with him?

And I was getting annoyed at his autism in my Goodreads feed. Now I just feel bad

I am at home now but on welfare, I hope next year I can work again.

I keep a mental challenge for this.
Also, I pretty much quit comics, at least for a while

Don't add comics, or don't set the date for them.

nope :(
Started working this year and that really screwed up my times
>>
>>7321202
I'm ten books over my challenge because I had no idea how many I read in a year, never really cared or counted, so I low balled it with a target of 30 on goodreads. Next year I'll do 50 or sixty because I'll have more free time and it's still a reasonable goal/will push me.
>>
>>7321676
>Don't add comics
Nah, I want to r8 them
>don't set the date for them.
Nah, I want those pretty graphs

I mean, it's not an actual problem, it just kills the purpose of the challenge.

The numbers are a bit inflated, both on the read and goal side to compensate. I haven't yet read every book I planned on reading for this year.

get rekt scrubs

I'm at like 160 out of a rate of 200. I'm travelling this year, so I have tons of down time just for reading. I'm hoping to read a bunch of PKD and maybe some comfy detective novels to round off a year of pretty serious lit.
