I've read/completed 60 books this year. Am not counting the books I started but decided not to finish or to finish at some future date. My goal was to read 75 books this year, so I think I am right on track to meet that. I read/finished 40 books last year.

This has been a enriching reading year, too. I have pushed myself to read a few things that I wouldn't ordinarily spend the time on and I'm glad I did.
