I want to read at least 12 books before year's end

I want to read at least 12 books before the year's up. I've already completed A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens and am currently working on The Invisible Man by H.G. Wells. I have 14 classics and 21 Christian Fiction books on my PRS-300. How do I put my reading challenge from Goodreads in my signature?

A Christmas Carol - Charles Dickens (done)
The Invisible Man - H.G. Wells (currently reading)
