I have 46 books to read to reach my goal of 200. I am surprised that I am so close due to fact that I was ill so much of the year.

I wish SP Message Board worked more like Facebook or the Friend Feed so we could comment directly to someone's post. Anyway, GRANDMOM43, such impressively ambitious goals! Even if you don't make it, you sure got a lot of great reading done in the process.

My goal was to read 52 books this year. According to Goodreads, I've read 23 so far and I'm 15 books "behind schedule". I probably won't make the goal, but it will be interesting to see how close I get.

Congratulations to those of you that are on target!

I finished 2 so far this month, so that puts me at 65 for the year.

I'm late, but I think I will jump in here anyway! I liked the idea someone had for reading a book a week. I'd like to say I started mid-July. My goal is 22 books for this year.

Last month, I read two books! On schedule! I may easily go over by the time I am done, because I always am reading several books at once, and if I just focus, I can keep to this schedule.

Just catching up with you guys...long-time Spark member but not very active for awhile...working part time so I have a less ambitious goal of 50. I am at 15 for the year but I included research books for elementary grades' art history research, my work. (??) Best book of the year so far: All the Light I Cannot See-Anthony Doerr. It just won the Pulitzer! A must read!

I'm going to go with 52 books again this year. A book a week. I challenged myself to 52 books last year and just barely made it. I was a great challenge for me. It reminded me to pick up a book and read when I was looking for something to do.

As long as audio books count, I can probably get a few in this year. I have to make a four hour round trip about once a week during tax season to visit our other office. Sometimes I listen to books on tape, but sometimes it is really nice just to drive in silence.

Peace and Many Blessings!

For those with little time to sit and read - try audiobooks! I have one in my car and am generally unpleasantly surprised by home much time I spend in my car. I also download audiobooks to my iPod and will turn it on at home when I'm doing things like unloading the dishwasher or shredding junk mail into the recycle box. Those few minutes add up! I also take the iPod to the gym and listen while I'm on the exercise equipment.

As for the challenge, I'm going to try for 100 books this year. Might not make it, especially since my current book is over 800 pages long, but I"m going to try anyway!

Jen, when I was still working, I was lucky to get one book per month read, so I think your goal is great!

I had to quit working in 2008 because of health issues, and much of that time, I spent sitting and having chemo, so that gave me a lot of spare time to read.


My name is Shari; I have been a Sparker since July 2006, I am now in hospice care for metastatic breast cancer, but I'm not letting cancer stop me from Sparking!

Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

JEN169, my goal is only 40 and I don't know if I will make it. Last year I only got 14 books read because of working a crazy schedule, a job I don't have anymore. In 2012, I got 80 books. So, it varies with me too. I think your goal is very realistic. And NPA4LOSS, I hadn't worked for a while because of MS so I will be able to read more now that I am going back on disability. It was hard to quit the job but, like you said, there is a silver lining to the loss. emoticon

Thanks! I was feeling wimpy because I had only challenged myself to 30, which is more than I read last year, but when I went on Goodreads, I was comforted to see that others had posted lower numbers also.



Peace and Many Blessings!

Jen, there's this great invention called "retirement" that enables us old ladies to read...hang in there and someday it can happen to you! It is great to be an unemployed senior.

You are all so ambitious. I just do not have time to read! I wish that I did. It is also difficult because I have to read for church and for work, and I do several shows a year. I find myself reading scripts over and over again. I am setting a very low goal of 30 books because I think I can read two a month plus a couple of extra ones. I may be able to read more as I deleted the games, except for Scrabble, off of my facebook last night. We will see! Maybe I will surprise myself.

Peace and Many Blessings!

This is an easy one; just tell us how many books you hope to read for 2015; be sure to stop in monthly and update us on your progress!

I'm going to go for 75 this year.
