    I average 3 books a week, more if I get stuck into a series of books. I now read more than I watch tv
    So it should be 156 books this year, I'm already ahead of my estimate so far this year though

      Currently, I cant really read much due to work. I am trying to find more time so I will be able to read more.
      I am planning to read Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania

      I am also trying to read Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption.

        I plan on 100 nonfiction books. I achieved that in 2013; not so good in 2014, only 48. My sister said that wasn't so bad, that's one book a week plus four weeks off for good behavior. [:-)

        I count codices, ebooks, audiobooks, and occasionally fiction that is directly related to the study project and that I might not read as fiction for pleasure (Tale of Two Cities, A Place of Greater Safety, both important French Rev. fiction). I have been known when desperate at the end of the month to read a knitting book with lots of illustrations. Hey, it's nonfiction.
        You knit then ?
