If you haven’t noticed from the proliferation of book reviews I’ve posted lately, I’ve been reading a lot.
Well, not exactly a lot, but more than I’m usually able to. With school beginning for me in less than a week I’m trying to squeeze in some books to increase my yearly book count. Last year my goal was 150, and I got to 146. This year it’s 100, and I’m currently at 66. I don’t expect to reach 100 with the amount of coursework I’ll be burdened with once school starts, but hey, it’s better to aim high than settle for too little, right?
I’m not saying that the number of books you read per year is indicative of how avid a reader you are. It is quality over quantity, after all. As the years pass I think I’ll read about 70-80 books annually, depending on the difficulty of the texts and what not. If I go to law school like my family wants me to that number will probably decrease, but if I become a hermit and seclude myself from the world with a lifetime supply of novels…
Do you have a reading goal? Do you try to read a certain amount of books per year? The book counter on Goodreads can help you keep track of the number of books you read, and so can this site.
