  1. I remember the first year that I tried to read a book-a-week. There was an online club, and our common goal was to do that. The club expanded the next year to create a 100-books-a-year goal, too.

    1. It's a fun way to read your way through the year!

  2. Go you! Great fun and a grand way to read books!

  3. Tallying up the books I read would be too hard for me! I’m sure I have read at least one book each week of the year, but I just don’t keep track. I hope you succeed in reading … AND counting!

    Best… mae at

    1. Honestly, the keeping track gets to me sometimes so I understand what you are saying!

  4. Good luck! I try to read 2 books a week, but it often doesn't happen.

    1. Thank you! It doesn't always happen for me either.

  5. Glad you are diving back in again. Enjoy!
