I have already completed 12 books this month -- as many as I read in September -- and there's still 1/3 of the month left. I *love* road trips! I get so much time for reading.

Finally finished book number 61. I should be able to make 65 or 66 by the end of the year, even with being more busy.

I am approximately thirty books behind my goal this year. I do not think that there is any way that I can meet my goal.

Since you seem to only be 22 books away from your goal, I'm not quite sure how you can be thirty behind?

You have 69 days left. That's 16% of the year. You've got 26% of your challenge to go. That's sounds bad. But look at it in days per book. So far you've read one book every 4.7 days. You only need to manage one book every 3.2 days to meet your target. Don't give up yet!

I'm 44 books behind. I have to read a book every 1.6 days. Good thing I don't have any money riding on this challenge

I'm 133 behind on my goal of reducing my TBR.

I've nearly finished all of my sub-goals, though. I was only intending to read 8 of my 26 detective books, and I've already started the 8th, but I'm thinking now that I might bump it up to a two-year challenge rather than three, so I want to get a few more in before the end of the year.

A book every 1.6 days would be very hard. I've averaged one every 1.75 days this year, and that's more than usual for me.

Yes. Well. I'm 69 behind on my TBR reduction plan (wanted 67, currently -2) and 51 over my target of no more than 120 books bought this year.

So I've missed both my targets for this year by miles already. I expect to buy at least another 13 ebooks this year, which will put me well over 50% or more over my buying goal, and probably leave me at a net zero reduction in TBR.

Perhaps I'll do better next year...

I'm at 33 books read so far this year. I'm don't think I'll make my goal of 50. I'll probably end up with 40-45 read.

I'm on 94 books so far this year, which is well up on the 76 I managed in the whole of 2012. I didn't set myself any particular target, but I should certainly reach the hundred mark this year, which is nice figure.

The reason I've read more is that I've worked away from home a lot more this year than last year, so I've had lots of evenings in hotel rooms in which to read .

I've read 74 books so far this year; last year, I read 94 books, so Goodreads calculates that I am 2 books behind matching that number.

I read multiple books at once, so the Goodreads count usually varies by one or two books ahead or behind, so I think I may be on track to at least MATCH last year's total.

I think it's safe to say that last year's numbers are safe from me for this year.
83 books and 25,253.

I should be done book number 62 sometime tomorrow, but I'm only at 18,679 pages right now as well. 21 books in about 65 days is probably not going to happen. A book every 3 days is not in my usual pace especially at the end of the year.

You are correct pdurrant, although I said the same thing this same time last year an I managed to over shoot my goal last year.

How do you count the number of pages?
