I based my Goodreads Challenge 2012 on 42 books and have ended up reading 56 books so far. With three months left, it will end at 80 books...not to mention 100's of flash fiction and short stories I have read in magazines, ezines and blogs.
I review some books as a part of a review site, so I end up reading more than one book in a week. With middle age catching up on me, speed reading days are long gone, a time when I could read a book a day. :(
I have a wish list on Amazon and Goodreads, mostly books I will purchase later, and some I would love to but are too pricey for me.
