How Many Books Are You Going To Read in 2011?


Isn’t that the question that all book lovers ask themselves every beginning of the year? It’s the time for new resolution and also a great time to be very optimistic about how much time we will be able to devote to reading.

This year is the first year I decided to actually set a goal for myself. I feel like I haven’t been able to read as much as I would have liked to in previous years and I’m going to try and change that this year. Also turns out I get better results when I set goals for myself. For example, I had been wanting to re-read the Harry Potter books in forever but never did, until we started the Harry Potter Challenge.

And so since Goodreads has set up a great way for you to set up a reading goal for yourself with their 2011 Reading Challenge, I decided to set my goal to read at least 48 books this year. You can find my Goodreads page here if you are interested in following my progress.

But that’s not all, on top of that I am adding my own Comic Book 2011 reading goal. There are way too many comic books on my book shelves that I want to read (I have at least 70 that I own and that’s not counting everything that will be coming out this year) and so my goal for this year will be to read at least 70 comic books.

I’m trying not to think too much about how I will achieve these two goals but at least I already have 2 challenges (Harry Potter and YA Challenge) that will bring me closer to my two goals. So to recap, this year my goals are to read at least:

48 Books

70 Comic Books

These are my goals, but I am curious to know what your reading goals are this year. Will you try to beat your reading total from last year?
