How many books have you read in one year?

A friend made a goal to read 100 books in one year. I am thinking about giving it a try. Have you ever done it?

  • I belong to a group called Cafemom Bookaholics and did several challenges last year. One was read a book set in every state, one was Alphabet for the titles, another was alphabet for the authors, one was set a number goal. I set 50, finished that in June, so set another and finished my one hundred last week!

  • I read 3 books a week. So over the year. It adds up. Books have become my addiction.

  • yes, but its also makes it more expensive since im not going into a store and handing them cash, its all electronic, but my kindle goes everywhere with me. so when i am sitting the car waiting to pick my girls up i read, or the doctors, i even took it on vacation.

  • I read all the time so I'm sure that I have hit the 100 in a year mark. Now, if we are including the books I read to go along with all of our homeschooling, I would probably come in with at least 500 in a year. I write a lot of the unit studies we use and I use a lot of books to do that. I utilize the public library though, so it's all free. (c:

  • I bet I read 3-4 books a week, so I'm well up over 100 in a year.
