Goodreads 2012 Reading Challenge

Last year I decided to join up to Goodreads 2011 reading challenge. Considering I like fat books, I set my challenge at fifteen books, a little over a book a month--what was I thinking? I don't know how I did it, but I surpassed that goal and read eighteen books last year! When Goodreads posted the new challenge for this year, I decided to up the ante a little to beat last year's total and go for twenty books. I don't know how I'll manage to read that much, but I'm sure I'll have fun trying! And I don't imagine I'll be likely to go for any skinnier books, either--that feels too much like cheating. I'll just have to shut the TV off a little longer and keep my face buried in the pages instead--plenty fine by me!

This morning I came across a fifty book challenge on Live Journal. Whew! I wish I could read that much--and it would have to be some awfully skinny books! A girl has a house to clean and pack up and get ready to sell and move several states away on top of daily care of child and critters and self...Maybe some day...But for now I'll stick with my goal of twenty. That sounds pretty good to me. How about you, how many books will you try to read this year? Why not sign up for the challenge on Goodreads today?
