I try to always participate in the reading challenges over on Goodreads. I always tend to go over my reading goal which is actually pretty good but I only place realistic goals on myself because as we all know, life happens. For 2016 my goal was to read 24 books. As you can see I beat that by 30 books. Next year my goal is going to be 36 books. Why only 36 since I obviously tend to read more books than that in a year? Well, as my kids get older and more involved in stuff and as we have other things that could keep me from reaching a much higher goal, I am trying to be much more reasonable in case I am kept from completing the goal at hand. I like giving myself room for light reading months in case things happen that prevent me from finishing. And, if I overwhelming beat my goal at the end of the year then great. If not, then no big deal. Do you set a reading goal for yourself every year?
