Well, it's three hours until 2013, and I have missed my goal by 7. A net reduction of 73 ebooks, and I was aiming for a net reduction of 80.
However, that's still a lot better than I managed in 2011.
I read 185 books (incl. 6 abandoned and 2 re-reads).
Of the non-free books I read (177), the average book cost was $2.85
I bought 137 books at an average cost of $2.27
I discarded 25 books from my TBR pile, either because I found I had already read them, or because I decided not to (re-)read them.
Next year, my goal will be to buy no more than 120 new books. A secondary goal is to reduce by TBR list by 67 books.
I think I can achieve this.
