2012 Reading Challenge

I joined goodreads last year, and started managing my reading. I checked back my old blogs and amazon purchase record to add books I read.
Soon I found a nice feature called “Reading Challenge” and I set my goal for 2012.

So, how I did?

40 books a year did not sound too many first, considering I’m not working and have full day for reading if I choose. But it was a good goal. I had to rush during last two months of 2012. But I did make it, and managed to do extra two books. Well done.

Goodreads also generates a nice statistics about my 2012. My 42 books turned out to be 12727 pages. I don’t know what this means to me, but it’s nice to know. That’s roughly 300 pages a book. And the longest book I read this year was, not surprisingly, Stephen King’s. Looking back, he won that award in 2011, and he might do the same this year.
