Reading Challenge - Are you on track?

Since 2011 is half over, will you make it?

Can you pick it up in the home stretch?

Or, perhaps, a little too much January ambition and need to make a downward adjustment?

There are no winners and losers. Having fun is more important. Good books, too.

Personally, I'm behind schedule but still hope to make my 20,000 pages.

I'm way behind. My goal was 31 books, and I don't think I'll make it.

I think I can say firmly say "No" I will not make 100 books this year; I don't even know if I'll make 50 (my secondary goal). What I will be able to do, however, is learn what I should aim for next year; it might be as few as 25.

My goal is 144, and I'm at 65. 4 books behind. I'm trying to read some shorter books now so I can catch up.

I started my goal at 100. Then moved it up to 150 last month, and I'm still 8% ahead. I figure a little padding is a good thing now, in case things do slow down

Well I want to reach 100 so I'm only 88 behind more or less. I wasn't keeping track of what I read earlier in the year via a 'read' collection like I am now though. I used to set a goal for how many books to read during the summer as a kid and always overshot the mark so I might still make it. Six months is six months after all. lol.

Am I on track? No way. I'm currently bogged down for the third time since January (I force myself to finish a book I've started unless it's completely horrid). I still have high hopes of getting close to 100, though.

If I counted work-related reading, I'd be ahead of the pace.

I'm reading books 70 and 71 right now, so I think I'm on track for 100. That doesn't count any paper or work-related books I've read or any children's books I've read. Just ebooks. Just indie ebooks.

Wish I were further on my progress on the tbr and reviewed list!

I am definitely behind (reading books 34 and 35 now), but I'm really loving my reading this year. I've encountered a wider assortment of authors than in any previous years and I've even given classics some loving for the first time in many years.

I knew it was unlikely I'd make the 100 book target from the start so falling behind doesn't stress me too much.

For my classics challenge, I've read 4 out of 12 so am 2 books behind at the moment. I think I'll probably achieve this one.

I have not "officially" joined the challenge but I am determined to read 100 books this year as well. I finished book no. 50 on June 30th at 11:30 pm, so I am on track.
I had read 46 books by the end of May so I expected to be further ahead by now. During June I started several books just to be detracted by other interesting books that came along. I have about 10 books in various stages of progress by now, but I am determined to have finished them by the middle of August.
There are some heavy tomes among them, though, so they may slow me down somewhat.

For me the challenge is a tool to impose some discipline but I haven't enjoyed my reading so much for years.

I'm a little ahead, mainly because I am travelling a bit more than usual, and listening to audiobooks when driving. Should get to my 100 in 2011 ok .

I certainly won't make it. Still, thanks to this challenge, and my trusty smartphone, I've been reading like there's no tomorrow. In fact, it's been ages since I last has so much fun with reading... how dumb I feel now for having lost so much time with games, TV and movies for the most part of my 20's and 30's.

BTW, I'm on bed in the dark. I awoke and just read Poe's "The Raven". Unfortunately, most such short poetry and tales can't enter the challenge because are not full books. I should've adopted the pages counter. No, that wouldn't suffice either, as page is meaningless in ebooks. Perhaps words?

doesn't matter, what matters is that I'm reading a lot again..
