    I wish I felt like this was possible for me but I do good to finish a book a month with my schedule these days Sometimes I'll get in jags and just read any free moment and I can finish a couple books in a week but more often I read before bed a couple times a week and I only get through a chapter or so.

    I'm doing the 2016 Reading Challenge. It is 41 books and I usually have book club or something else I add into my reading cycle! So I'm shooting for one book per week

    ETA: Oh, and I include audiobooks in this. My life doesn't otherwise allow for that much downtime

    I do a book challenge every year but I haven't set a goal this year yet. Maybe 40

    I set a small goal on the good reads app of a book a month though I've already read two this month. Staying focused on reading is always a goal of mine!

    I want to try but I totally fell through last year. I may have reached 52 books, but I'm awful at tracking them.

    So far this year I've read:
    1) Moth and Spark by Anne Leonard
    2) His Dark Materials #1 by Philip Pullman (almost done)
    3) Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone Illustrated Edition by JK (also almost done)

    Same lol. I tend to read a lot in January and December and not much in between. This year I am determined! I'm trying to get a head so if I slack some weeks I have some wiggle room and as such, I'm already 4 books in! Some of these were started in December but finished in January so I'm counting them...

    1. Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson
    2. Why not me? By Mindy Kaling
    3. The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey
    4. The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey
