I hit 57 books last month. With a new job last year and a promotion that includes managing other people this year, I set a lower target of 50. I have reduced my TBR by 22, which is only about a third of my goal. But I have read lots more library books this year. And most of the books coming into the house are technically my wife's though I catalog it all together.

Maybe now that the library/reading room has been seconded as the kitten's new room, I will eat into the TBR more.

The only one of my challenges left to meet are the magazines and I should make some advances on that this month. My only take-along device for the next couple of months is the kindle with only magazines. Take that Lightspeed!

I have certainly moved way beyond the point of worrying about TBR. Now it is more of a case, of making sure I read all the likely great books I possess, before I leave this mortal coil ... and of course any new ones that come along meanwhile. That and reading all by the authors I am greatly fond of.

I have a few reading ambitions though.

The first and most obvious one, is to enjoy what I read, and not force myself beyond good sense to stick to an agenda. That has become easier now, as I know I can never possibly read all I already possess, so I am being quite selective while also trying to ensure enough variety.

I am a fan of many many authors, far too many no doubt. So another of my ambitions, is to read all their works at least, but where possible in order of publication, though I do make it chronological sometimes as well, so I stay up-to-date with events in them. An example, is Agatha Christie, where I am approaching the last handful she wrote. I have read the majority of Rafael Sabatini, Robert E. Howard, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Leslie Charteris, Terry Pratchett, C.J. Box and so on, and a good number since I started with this ambition, have been re-reads ... chiefly because I never read them in the proper order in the first place. I have a bigger bunch of authors, that I am roughly halfway or slightly more through, and then very many where I have read somewhat less.

Another ambition, is to read certain classics I still haven't gotten around to.

Then there is ambitions like staying up-to-date a little regarding new modern authors, expanding the genres I read, convincing myself to learn to tolerate audio books, etc, etc.

Anyway, I am convinced there is plenty to read out there still .... ha ha ha.

P.S. Reading the Bible properly as an adult from start to finish, used to be an ambition, but that fell by the wayside, along with any belief, over a decade ago. I was also going to re-read The Book Of Mormon at some point .... but I have seen the latest musical, and that's enough ... ha ha ha.

I've had better years. I even set my goal very late (June). It is 50, and I am at 18 I think. I've also been rubbish at tracking consistently. Not so great. Reading has been taking a backseat to other things - which is ok, if they are good things, things that help me grow and learn, but not so much. The good news is that my reading is definitely picking up the pace - I go on holiday in a few weeks, so let's hope I get lots of reading done.
