Books read in 2012

Ah, 2012! Here's where I shall be keeping track of the books I read during 2012 - I will putting this link in my sidebar so you can return at any time to see how I'm getting on, if you so wish. (and I can't imagine why you would want to!)

My goal is to read between 200-225, hopefully clearing out the books already on my shelves, but we shall see. I'd also like to possibly read 75 books by British authors! Wish me luck :)

  1. You have beat me by one so far, but the month isn't over yet. *rushes to finish reading no 17! I really need to start doing this just to keep a track of what I am reading.

    1. Ah, good luck to you Vivienne :)

      (I'm totally hoping to read at least 7 more books before this month is out. Only to complete all my Love month reading!)

      I highly recommend that you keep track of the books you've read. It's really made a difference in my reading making these lists.

    2. Ha! I thought it was like the 20th. There's no way I'm going to read 7 more books before the end of this month! I'm such an idiot :(

  2. Ah you read so many books! I only read 5 and a half! I used to be so much faster at reading, but I've been really busy lately and didn't have enough time. Stupid busy life :)

    1. That pesky having a life thing, really gets in the way of things, doesn't it? :)

  3. Replies
    1. Thanks! Let's see how long I can carry on with this sort of reading. I could really power through my TBR shelves.

      Little disappointed in lack of more reviews though. Something to work on.

  4. Holy crapoli! That's a ton of books. Here's to keeping it going in 2012!

    1. Thank you! I sincerely doubt it though. I think this is mostly me cramming in as much as I can before Love month and before my tough uni course :)

  5. Wow, that's a lot of books and I'm def coming back to this page in the future to see how you're coming along with the target :D

    1. Ooh, no pressure there then :) I shall do my best to keep it fully updated then (as it isn't now.)


HI! Thank you for leaving a comment, you've just become my new best friend :)
