Put me down for 24. My Goodreads account says that I read 20 last year. I think I can do better than that. If I come up short in December I'll just throw in a few comic books.

I'm starting with "The Passage" by Justin Cronin. Technically, I started it last year but I'm only 25 pages into it. Am I winning?

I love this! I am in! I'll set a goal of 25 books - about 2 a month. Being a new teacher, this may be a stretch but I'll give it a go!

Excited to read Gone Girl, the 19th Stefanie Plum book and maybe check out another Evanovich series.

I'd love to join in. I'll set my goal at 40. I'm trying to get through Anna Karenina (sp?) right now, but I think I'm going to have to give it up and move on to something else. I have loved the suggestions and will try Gone Girl. I'm another one who couldn't stand the 50 Shades book, but I did enjoy The Book Thief and Hunger Games and a few other YA books.

I will go with 50. I'm trying to inspire my 10 year old to read more.

So we just made this challenge in my house as well.

One of my resolutions this year is to read more and less tv. I love to read, but somehow never find time. I'm going to try to read 30. I have about 25 on my Nook shelf to read so if I have to add more books, that's a good thing. One book I am trying to read this year is Les Mis. After seeing the play 4 times and the movie 2 times, I want to read the book. Although I do have a question. Because it is about 1500 pages can I count that as 2 books ?

I'm in! This is a great idea! I'll try for 40 books. I used to read more (maybe averaged a book a week) but now I probably average a book every 2 weeks, so this will be a bit of a stretch for me.

I joined goodreads and have a quick question. How do you mark books as 'currently reading'? There's a book on my 'to read' shelf that I'm currently reading. I've tried hitting the 'edit' button but nothing happens. Please help!

Also thanks to the poster who mentioned goodreads. There's a lot of useful tools, and I like how they give you book recommendations based on stuff you've already read! Very cool.

ETA: Just hit the edit button for the 10th time....and it works! Now I can add books to my 'currently reading' shelf. Guess 10th time is the charm. lol

I'm actually the opposite - the iPad kicked me into being a reader again. I love reading on the iPad and now am wondering how I ever read a paper book. I just got the mini and am thinking I am going to fly through more books than ever.
