In Ravelry, I saw a group who pledge to read 52 books in a year. Unfortunately, it was already October when I found it, but since I read a lot I thought I would try to read 52 books by the end of the year. If I go to Virginia early this year, I probably won't make it, but at least it will encourage me to put away some time wasting things that I do...like Facebook and Spider Solitaire to name two! I picked this counter because I read, listen on my computer, on CD and iPod. I thought it was appropriate.
I have started by adding reviews of a lot of books I have on Goodreads that I haven't written reviews of. I left for Virginia in May this year and didn't come back until September 5, so I had a number of books I never got the reviews for, especially in May, June and July. I am still aiming at recording every book I read for a year.
