I would love to join! Put me down for 65. Last year I read 113 but I was home recuperating from 2 surgeries so I think I'll lower that number this year.

I've just finished 2 in the last day. Books 3 & 4 of The Dulcie O'Neill series. Very engaging and an easy read if you like fantasy/paranormal romance novels.

Ereaders rock! Im a huge bookworm and love the real thing but my Kindle makes any downtime book time.

Next book I'm starting: Blackberry Winter by Sarah Jio

I'm in. My goal will be 26. That's only one book every two weeks so I should be able to hit that. Just got Under the Dome so that will be book number one. After that, not sure.

I can't speak for anyone else, but I'm not. Read big books, little books, picture books for all I care. It's your goal, who am I to tell you how to reach it?

My DH gets free e-books all the time, and we have Nooks. He says he just searches for the title he wants....there's no specific website he goes to. He's only ever bought e-books when I get him gift card. Otherwise he just downloads for free.

I can help you with how to get cheap(er) books if you have a Nook. Go to B&N website. Click on 'Nook Books'. Under there are 3 categories: Nook Snaps, Nook Daily Find, and Nook Books Under $5. All three areas have books, some as low as .99 cents! And this is how I get my books.

If you didn't do it for 2012, I'm not sure how you would do it now.
Thanks! I did that!! I didn't do it for 2012, but I did find a "stats" button that shows how many I've read in the last 3 or 4 years. So, I'm all set!!! Let the reading (and the fun times) begin!

I'm with Kathi! As long as you are reading, who's to judge what's a "real" book?!? Good luck everyone!

Would love to join. No goal because I couldn't possible read more than I do. I average well over 25 books per month.... LMAO! Nope not a typo I have 1100 books in my Kindle archive and have had it for just under 3 years

I love all kinds of books, smutty romance, military romance, military non romance. Whatever.

If anybody is looking for ideas one of my favorite authors is Matthew Riley. More of a "mans" type of book but very good. He has some books that are along a modern day Indiana Jones type and a series that is Military/Political. He hasn't had anything new out recently because of a personal tragedy but I just cannot get enough of his books.

If anybody has any book recommendations I'd love it. I LOVE series books. Not keen on historicals of any kind but that is pretty much my only restriction.

Joining the challenge. I'm going for 26, hoping for more, but 26 sounds reasonable. . Mockingjay is the first.

I'll set my goal at 50 books. I'm starting with Unbroken, which I've wanted to read for a long time, but never got around to reading. Very excited!!!

Once we're done with a book, are we coming back here to report? How will this work?

Off to read the rest of the thread, to see what everyone else is doing!
Hmmm I guess it's up to the individual poster how they'd like to keep track. Personally, I'd like to see book titles rather than just "finished #3!"

I'm not sure yet if I'll just keep updating my one post as I go along or if I'll create a new post with each book....

My biggest goal is to read the Bible this year.
And does that count as 66 books then???
