218 Books (nineteen were books on writing)
That's not counting any that I bought (on my kindle or in store), as well as any manuscripts I read for my CPs. And I read all these books while editing RULES, which I didnt start querying until August 2012. And going off of memory alone, about twenty of those books were rereads.
Most women (okay, maybe all women) can have a baby in nine months. But can they read 218 books in that amount of time? Hah! I think not. ;)
So, needless to say, I'm pretty impressed with myself right now. Might have even broken my arm while patting myself on the back. *grin* Because, for me, it's a huge reading accomplishment. Sad thing is, I won't even come close to that number this year. It's already April and I'm way behind. My TBR list is piled high and growing daily.
I didn't set out intentionally to read that many books last year. It just sort of happened, but my question for you is...
Do you set reading goals? If so, I'd like to hear about them.
