I'm doing pretty well at keeping track, now that I bought myself a little notebook and joined GoodReads.

I decided on 111 books in 2011. I may change that, as I'm already more than halfway there. List of read books/page count etc. so far under the cut - 59 finished so far. Not necessarily in order of reading - I only listed the month in my notebook until March 29th, not the exact date, so they sort randomly by month. A lot are re-reads, but I count those just the same. Page counts may be inaccurate, most were taken from GR and I know sometimes those editions are listed weirdly... I've sorted the list so far by author, since I don't know the exact dates I finished most of them.

59/111 )

Currently reading:
- Jean K. Baird - Elizabeth Hobart at Exeter Hall - 95/180
- David Eddings - The Elder Gods (Dreamers) - 227/480
- Reginald Hill - Midnight Fugue (Dalziel & Pascoe) - 38/384

So I lost count, mostly because I never did get around to page counting and pinning genres on some of the books that I read. So this time, I'm going to go from September 17th and just make a list with title and author, and I think I'll be able to keep up with that better.

I don't think my goal will be specific this time. I just want to keep track of how many books I read, and to read as much as I can. I'm counting anything over 200 pages (or in the case of fanfiction, 10000 words) as a book for the purposes of this, short stories as half-books. I hope to get through 100 books by March 17th, at least. I'm also going to total them up, every 20 books or so, by page so I can work out how high on me they'd come for the challenge of reading my height in books (not quite exactly with the rules [community profile] readheightetc used for it, but close).
