2012 Reading Challenge Update

There are only 5 weeks left in 2012, so I figured now was a good time to see where everyone is on their reading challenge. I’m personally on track to meet my goal of reading 60 books (which is child’s play for some of you). I’ve read 53 out of 60 so far, which means I’m going to have a busy December, as I typically read one book a week.

2012 Reading Challenge Update

Are you on track to meet your 2012 reading challenge? What has keep you motivated to meet your goal or what has distracted you?

2012 reading challenge stats

For me, just meeting my goal keeps me motivated. I’m very much an end-result driven person, and I aim to keep promises I make to myself. Although…I get distracted by so many things like holiday events, weddings (I’ve been to 3 this year which includes being my best friend’s matron of honor, and does not include one today) and Alias – all 5 season are on Netflix (!!!).

Will you make a higher or lower reading challenge goal for next year?

    I’m eight books away from completing my challenge for this year. I think I’m either going to keep mine the same or maybe lower it a bit because with university and all I don’t think I could read any more than I already do.

  • I’ve met my book goal for this year. Next year I’m going to attempt to read more pages than I’ve ever read.

  • Jackie Paulson

    I went beyond what I ever thought for the challenge and keep track of all books on goodreads.

  • My reading goal for next year will be higher, even though I didn’t reach my goal this year 🙁 I really need to pull my finger out and read faster, or dedicate time to reading every day

    I’ve nearly met my goal for the year but I think my goal for the next year will be lower. Also, I think my goal may be to just finish all of the books I own but have yet to read because the pile keeps growing!
