I think I have read at least 60 books in the last year but I've forgotten a lot of them as it was a struggle to understand them and unpack their ideologies. My aim for this year is to read a lot more books for just pleasure rather than having to.

I'm aiming for 30 this year since I'm planning on going back to school in September. I already purchased a few on my kindle that I'm excited to read.

My goal for 2012 was 30 and I feel like I crammed in some random sort of books at the end just to reach it.... so I'm going to aim for something like 20-25 this year...
I'm hoping to get to 25 so I guess I'll stick with that... but will adjust to 20 once I get a better idea of my pace.

Going to try for quality over quantity once again and hopefully will be a bit more successful at getting to some of the books i've been wanting to (but been too intimidated to) tackle.

I'm aiming for 30 books for the 2013 challenge. One of my goal this year is to read English literature in english as I tend to read everything in French.

I'm also aiming for 30 books this year. That was my goal last year and it was definitely reasonable. Good luck everyone!

I kind of lost the habit of reading for pleasure ever since I finished university (too much "forced" reading!), but it's something I need to get back into. Especially since I seem to keep buying books.

I'm aiming for 20.

I somehow finished my first book in one day. Guess that's what happens when you have New Year's day off work

1. Dare Truth or Promise by Paula Boock

Currently reading: Ask the Passengers by A.S. King

Let me know what you think of Gone Girl!
I just saw that Mint Condish recommended it in the book review thread and I've been feeling more and more inclined to read it.

(I hope it´s ok to post this)
A p2p link to download 100 ebooks in pdf or epub format. Lots of classics, from different genres
There are lots of classic english literature that I´ve never read, so that´s my goal... also read more argentine classics that I read in highschool but hardly remember.

I'll be aiming for 15-20 books this year, since now i bought an e-reader, i can more easily try to achieve this number... since last 2 years i've been having a lot of progress in terms of reading.
