It was interesting to see how many books I read each year, and something slightly more than 100 seems to be typical. I will finish this year with about 115 books read. I don't think I will set an exact numerical goal next year.

So my challenge for next year is two four fold:

My Calibre library of unread books currently numbers 760, a daunting and in fact impossible goal for next year. However, of these I have currently flagged 124 as of great interest to me. Considering that I typically add 4-8 new books to the second of these lists monthly, my first goal for 2012 is to end the year with my of interest list at no more than 50 books.

The second goal is to read every book of the month for both the MR Book Club and the MR Literary Book Club.

I realized that I should also include another couple of items in my 2012 goals. To read all of the books selected for the afternoon and evening book clubs at my local library. That's an additional 22 books; both clubs skip December, the holidays.
