Reading goal – achieved!

Earlier this year I set myself the goal of reading 75 books for 2011, over at Goodreads. Much to my surprise, I’ve already hit that! Which just means I have to read more, because if I’d had any idea what a huge difference purchasing a Kindle would have on my reading habits, I’d have set it at 100 to begin with.

Looking back over the books I have read so far, I would say there is a good blend. I’ve read childrens, MA, YA, NA (new adult), and adult novels. I’ve read fiction and non-fiction. Horror, fantasy, thriller, romance, paranormal, science fiction, chick lit, other things as well, no doubt, but there are too many to list. Collections of short stories, novellas and novels. As well as novels that were self-published, put out by smaller, medium and big publishers.

This is probably more variety than I have ever experienced before in my life. As a teen I would only read fantasy, and then I branched out and tried some thrillers, and then there was that patch where I was only reading about serial killers… Anyway, there is a world of books out there to consume, and I am doing my best to expose myself to a wide variety – and loving it!

There are only a couple months left to the year now, but I’ll be doing my best to hit 100. I probably have enough books stored on my Kindle to make it through without purchasing/requesting anything else, but it’s just so hard not to add to the pile of books to be read!

How are you doing with your reading this year? Have you noticed any interesting trends?
