Coffee and Conversation

I did it! When I signed up for the 100 books in a year challenge, I didn't think I would finish it but I figured it would challenge me to read more (not that I don't read voraciously). I never gauged how many books I read before but wasn't surprised, although it really doesn't feel like I read that many books. What about you, how many books do you read in a year, month etc? I've seen some challenges where people are signing up for 200+ books which blows my mind but impresses the heck out of me.

I started reading Wolf Hall this week and I'm interested and engaged but I've only been able to read a few chapters all week. As much as I hate to do it, I'm thinking about shelving it until after the holidays. This time of year is really hard to devote serious reading time to between shopping, wrapping, shopping, baking and well you get my drift. I have the second book in the Fever series, BloodFever, that I think I might switch to as I focus on for now.

Happy Reading everyone!


  1. Oh gosh. I read as many books as I can. i try not to get tied up in the number more than just reading to read. I'm always reading at elast 2 books at the same time. On my kindle right now I'm reading Neurotically Yours by Bonnie Trachtenberg and a paper version of The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap by Paulette Mahurin.

    1. I've always been the same, never keeping track just reading constantly, always a book in my hands. It was interesting charting it this year.

  2. I was originally aiming to read 111 books this year, but some personal issues happened that sidetracked me from reading for a while, so I just recently lowered my goal to 100. According to Goodreads I'm at 91 of 100 but according to my personal count I'm at 92 (one of the books isn't in GR database.) So, I'm hoping I can manage to make it before the year is out.
