Goals: (1) Read 20,000 pages - Finished!, (2) Re-read WoT - Finished!
I am going to do my page challenge again - 20,000 pages was about right, so that will be the same for next year. Other than a re-read of the Wheel of Time series in preparation for the final book release (January 2013, goal added in March), I won't be setting any specific books/series goals.
Completed page goal on October 25, 2012 during my re-read of Knife of Dreams by Robert Jordan. I will continue tracking though to see where I end up for the year to get a better idea for next year.
Completed re-read goal on December 26, 2012. Ready for A Memory of Light now!
December 31, 2012 - Read 24,204 pages and completed 79 books/short stories.
2012 final comments: I blew past my goal in October this year, almost a month faster than last year. There are a couple reasons, first is that I was a little more consistent in my reading, I had much less variation than last year. The second reason is that I was re-reading much more than 2011. With this in mind, I will plan on increasing my reading goal for 2013, but only to the level of 2011 since I don't plan on re-reading nearly as much in 2013 as I did this year (64% of the pages I read were re-reads vs 17% in 2011).
The List (in order of date finished):
Books in progress at the end of the year:
My final monthly reading stats and projections:
See this post for how to create your own Google Docs Reading Tracking spreadsheet, and the instructions for how to post a graph from Google Docs.
Edit: Removed TBR goal (reduce it) - my TBR list contains almost all free books, so I am just being slightly more picky about which ones I grab rather than worrying about it.

HomeInMyShoes 2012 Reading Challenge - The Lazy Dog
-- A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z --
-- 19-C 1900 1910 1920 1930 1940 1950
1960 1970 1980 1990 2000 2010 --
A new year and a new challenge. I started out thinking I needed to read more variety so I’d read at least one book from every decade since 1900. That seemed a little thin even for me who usually only reads twenty books a year. Then I thought about reading a pangram of author names and calling it The Quick Brown Fox Jumps Over the Lazy Dog challenge or just The Lazy Dog Challenge. I switched it up from the pangram to just read a book by an author whose last name begins with ‘?’ for every letter of the alphabet. So there it is.
The books that are larger in the list are my top picks from the list. Books that I would highly recommend to others.

Goal: 52 books
A place to keep track of the books I read in 2012. I'd like to reach 52, a book a week.
1. 1/1/2012 - Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs (Print Length: 350 pages) When I sat down to start to read, I had no intention of finishing the book in one day. Yet, I found the story-telling compelling enough that's exactly what happened.
2. 1/4/2012 - Airman by Eoin Colfer (Print Length: 417 pages)
3. 1/8/2012 - Shop Till You Drop: A Dead-End Job Mystery by Elaine Viets (Print Length: 292 pages)

6. 2/12/2012 - The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan (Print Length:290 pages)
7. 2/15/2012 - Hard Eight by Janet Evanovich - audiobook & a re-read
sometime in March and April (neglected to log at the time I finished them)-
8. The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien - audiobook & a re-read
9. To the Nines by Janet Evanovich - audiobook & a re-read
10. Ten Big Ones by Janet Evanovich - audiobook & a re-read
11. Dying To Call You: A Dead-End Job Mystery by Elaine Viets (Print Length: 288 pages)
12. The Titan's Curse by Rick Riordan (Print Length: 322 pages)
13. 5/02/2012 -Eleven on Top by Janet Evanovich - audiobook & a re-read
14. Doomsday Book by Connie Willis - audiobook
15. To Say Nothing of the Dog by Connie Willis - audiobook
16. State of the Onion (White House Chef Mysteries, No. 1) by Julie Hyzy
17. The Robots of Dawn by Isaac Asimov - audiobook
18. The Leper of St. Giles by Ellis Peters - audiobook
19. The Beekeeper's Apprentice by Laurie R. King - audiobook
20. A Monstrous Regiment of Women: A Novel of Suspense Featuring Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes by Laurie R. King - audiobook
21. 10/05/2012 - A Letter of Mary by Laurie R. King - audiobook
[10/7/2012 - just added the titles I've finished in the last few months, since I didn't log as I went, I may have missed a couple. Mostly audiobooks recently. Won't get anywhere near 52 for the year, but that's OK. I'm really enjoying the Laurie R. King books, adding her to my favorite authors list for sure]
I'm also going to list some of the more notable self-help, diet and health books I "read". I almost never read these from cover to cover. I skim and read what appear to be the more interesting chapters. I'm not counting them towards my "challenge" total.
The Belly Fat Cure Fast Track - Jorge Cruise

My 2012 challenge - read a list of nominated books
My overall challenge for 2012 is to read 75 books. Although I exceeded 100 in 2011, it was at the cost of various diversions such as short stories and magazines, and a lot of radio shows. So I'm reducing the number to allow for these various peccadilloes.
Within the 75, I have named a number of books I want to read (for various reasons - see below), and on top of this I will be attempting to read at least 6 of the Mobileread Book Club challenges (including the Romance choice, just to force me to read from a genre wild horses would not normally drag me to, and the Classics, which are woefully missing from my named list). I also want to clear my bedside table draw of a few lingering dead tree books, which have been appended to my list below.
So in summary:
Read 6 from the MR Book Club choices (Achieved 6 of 6)
Read all of the 30 named books on my list (18 down, 12 to go)
Read 75 books in total (65 down, 10 to go)
11/22/63 - Stephen King (been listening to this since November 2011, and should finish it by the end of January, I hope). - Read
Black Rain - Masuji Ibuse (January 2012 MR Book Club choice). - Read
Transition - Iain M. Banks (first eBook I bought after acquiring my Kindle. Must get round to finally reading it).
Antigone - Sophocles (my first born was named after this Greek tragic heroine, so I ought to get round to reading the play). - Read.
Rain Fall - Barry Eisler (recommended by an MR member - can't remember who). - Read
Survival Of The Fittest - Jonathan Kellerman (I think I missed this one somehow, so need to catch up as I've read all the other Alex Delaware books). - Read
The New York Trilogy - Paul Auster (have wanted to read this for a while).
1Q84 (books I and II) - Haruki Murakami (2011 MR Book Choice that I haven't yet caught up on).
Shikasta - Doris Lessing (Desertblues has convinced me to give Lessing a try).
Rabbit, Run - John Updike (just feel like I should read an Updike, and the Rabbit series (#3) is in the 1001 must read books list).
In Cold Blood - Truman Capote (a classic of its genre). - Read
Heaven's Prisoners - James Lee Burke (will keep going with the Dave Robicheaux series, having started it in 2011).
Nightmare in Pink - John D. MacDonald (I enjoyed the first in the series, so will carry this on for a while and see where it goes).
Soft Target - Stephen Hunter (have read all the swagger books - no reason to stop now ) - Read
Swan Song - Robert R. McCammon (audiobook. I loved "Boys Life" and "Fevre Dream", and have promised myself that I would return to this author). Read/Listened to
The Five - Robert R. McCammon (audiobook). Read/Listened to
Blood Count - Robert Goddard (audiobook. I have read all of his books to date, apart from this one). - Read/listened to
Fool Moon - Jim Butcher (wasn't that impressed with the first in the Dresden series, but as people say it improves I'll give #2 & #3 a go, and then decide whether to complete the series). - Read
Grave Peril - Jim Butcher (I'll decide after this one whether to carry on with the series).
Neverwhere - Neil Gaiman (seems to be a popular choice with MR readers). - Read
Robert B. Parker's Lullaby - Ace Atkins (due for release in May 2012). - Read
The Cold Kiss - John Rector (recommended by an MR member - can't remember who).
Taken - Robert Crais (I'm a big fan of this series - due for release in January 2012). - Read
Terror's Reach - Tom Bale (apparently if you like the Jack Reacher books, you'll like this - suckered in by marketing once again). Read/Listened to
Artists in Crime - Ngaio Marsh (recommended by HarryT).
The Serialist - David Gordon (suggested by Dr. Drib).
The Book With No Name - Anonymous (DTB gift). - Read
Nine Dragons - Michael Connelly (DTB).
All the Pretty Horses - Cormac McCarthy (DTB which I've had for ever, and given my enjoyment of The Road and No Country for Old Men, one I really should read).
Viper - Michael Morley (my first eBook library loan - will have to bump it up the list to read within 21 days ) - Read

Goal: 35 books, 50% Canadian Literature
I read 30 books this year (well, that will likely be 31 or 32 by the time the calendar changes over). I think next year's goal will be to hit 35, 50% of which will be Canadian Literature.

One book a week
My goal as of now is to read one book a week in 2012, or ~52 books total.
From others' posts, I might come up with a more specific goal as well.
Edit to add: I'm going to make it my goal to post one book a month here to the MR library, preferably epub.

2. Mockingjay (The Hunger Games #3) by Suzanne Collins 4/5
3. Headhunters by Jo Nesbo 3/5

Goal: To Read 150 Books and to Reduce TBR
1. To read at least 150 books this year (I upped it from 100).
2. Expand my reading by reading as many of the classics as I can. (I've started that late this year with David Copperfield and The Three Musketeers)
3. Reduce my TBR list on Goodreads
Will add more as I think of them.
