So, does it count as reading a book in 2013 if you start it in 2012?

To help with my "One book a week" goal I'd like to start my first book of the year on Sunday Dec. 30th, giving myself until saturday January 5th to finish.

For me, I'm going to finish the book I'm currently reading tomorrow and I won't start another until January 1st.

I count them based on when I finish them, I figure it will just average out in the end. I did note when it was started in my spreadsheet so that I know if it ever becomes a big deal (I know it won't, but I wanted to do it anyway)

I realised this year that there is no way I'll have the energy to keep up an actual list here as well as on my own blog + Goodreads, so I'm not going to join the list thread this time, but I think I'll set 120 books as my Goodreads challenge for 2013.

It should be fairly easy to achieve even when I don't have a lot of time or energy to read, so no pressure and no having to skip thicker books (not that I was skipping thicker books for that reason this year - I just don't care for doorstoppers at this stage).

My secondary challenge (mostly for my own amusement/interest) this year was to read at least one self-published book a month. I managed that, and I might keep that up in 2013 as well, but I won't make it a requirement to actually finish them.

I'd also like to get my TBR list down, not increase it even further, but... well. We'll see about that.

No public challenges for me this year. Going to try to put the fun back in my reading instead of racing for a number. I will continue to record on both Goodreads and LibraryThing through the year.

That said, I've picked up a couple Warhammer 40K ebook bundles from Black Library that I'm planning to work my way through.

Not really a challenge this year, just a desire to keep track of what I read. I've done well with that this year, and I've found it helpful and interesting. I have no doubt that I'll read well over 100 books, but what I'd hope to see is a bit better mix of old/new and escape/classics. Not a challenge, it will happen if I at least keep track.

Part of my challenge next year will to read some history books and biographies of the soldiers involved in the Civil War. That period of time fascinates me. I already purchased a biography of Stonewall Jackson. Along the same lines is to read biographies of some of the more famous American Indians. I purchased a biography of Geronimo to get started with that. I believe that I will stick with my goal of 150 books of which 20 or so will be books covering these two topics.

My goal for 2012 was not for books or pages, but for evenings I spent reading for pleasure. I found this particularly apt because I read a lot of short stories this year, and when I finish a short story I stop reading for the rest of the day.

However, making a note that I had read each evening was a bit of a chore, so I won't keep track of that again this year.

I have finished fourteen books this year, and may finish one more by Monday night. So my goal for 2013 will be finishing twelve books because the publishing industry considers an "avid reader" to be one who purchases twelve books per year.

More like sign of laziness to make your own damn list haha. Or lack of creativity to make up your own challenge.

The nerve of this guy/girl...

I dont mind though, but its weird
But in the end, if he/she does read these books all is good in the world, because some of these are real gems of fantasy

Well in that case, maybe I should check them out too!

In fact, both Perdido Street Station & The Name of the Wind are already on my TBR list.

I'm planning on getting through a few of the 'classics' next year (I'm thinking Middlemarch, War And Peace, Les Misťrables, LOTR...), and I have a nasty habit of choosing doorstoppers without any idea of what I'm getting myself into.

As I'm a notoriously slow reader, I don't think that I'll read more than fifteen books (if that!). Due to the lengths of the individual books in my (loosely) planned to-be-read list, I'm doing a page number goal this year: 30,000 pages. It won't encourage me to gravitate towards shorter books, which I was doing quite a lot of this year.

For what it's worth, you've picked some fantastic books to read next year -- I can see why you have a few devotees.
