75 books in 2014

For now, my challenge is simply to read 75 books in 2014. I will add some specific challenges once I get my head round what they are . One thing I am going to do is keep track of pages read, as I've never bothered with that before.

EDIT: I am including novellas and some short stories in my book count, balanced by some books which are around 600 pages. So my secondary challenge is to average the page count to about 300 pages overall.
