24 Books in 2011
Goodreads (a website to help digitally document your library) has a goal every member can participate in- set a reading goal for 2011. I've seen some members who have determined to read 2,011 books in 2011. I don't even think I've read that many books in my lifetime, including textbooks, and I consider myself an avid reader. After examining my priorities and my time, I set a realistic goal of 24 books for 2011. That's 2 books per month. Every year I read triple that amount, but since I'm slowing down to read one book at a time (i can tell it's going to get antsy), I know can do it. I want to divulge in the quality of the book, rather than check off the number of books I've read for bragging rights (it's the curse of the elitist academic).
