Fantasy - 5
Young Adult - 36
Children's & Middle Readers - 22
Other - 1

Phew! What a 2011?!  So what's in store for 2012 you ask?  Well . . . a few Challenges . . .

Mount TBR Challenge - Goal of 50 books (already have them pulled out and set aside)
Classics Challenge - Goal of 5 books (and maybe a few re-reads)
Arthurian Legends Challenge - Goal of 15 books

For a total of 65 already planned.  I am setting a lighter goal for 2012 of 75 total books since looking at plans and schedules for the year its going to be a crazy crazy year!

So how did you do this year? Plans for next year?


  1. You read so many books!!! That's just too cool. I'm glad you're going to be tackling that pile o' books of yours for next year. I hope to get through a sizable amount of mine too. Hope this next year isn't too super crazy for you! ^_^

  2. Holy cow! That's a heck of a lot of books. I don't think I read even a quarter of those. Looking forward to another great year of reading ahead with you Ang!

  3. Whoohoo! Way to go! That's a lot of books. I reached my goal of 100..barely.

  4. Haha yea it was a ton of books this year, the benefit of having a job I can read during! Most of my books for next year though are paperbacks so I won't be able to bring those into the office. My goal is to purchase a lot less books this year and maybe keep my TBR pile managable!

    I look forward to seeing what you all choose to read this next year! So many new adventures!
