What is on Your Night Stand?

Last year I had a goal to read more and watch less TV. I was hoping to get through 52 books and I made it to 41. Of course I did read the Outlander series and each of those books are 1000 pages so maybe they count extra.... ;) I am setting out again to read 52 books this year and maybe include a little more non fiction. So what is your reading goal this year?
This was an attempt last year. Made it through part of Life of Pi, Part of Discovery of Witches, part of The Postmistress so I didn't count them on my list.

  1. Have you read Wonder? So good and a great read for your sweet girl as well. Alexander and I read it last month.

  2. My girl read that one last month but I didn't get a chance before it went back to the library. She loved it!

  3. Are you on Goodreads?

    I do the Reading Challenge every year where you set a personal goal of books to read from jan one til dec 31 and you can track your progress with each book on there. I even have a widget on my blog so you can see what im reading now and how far into it I am. Its helping me to keep accountable for my reading. :) but its also neat cuz you can see who else is reading what and how close to their goal they are. I think Liz does it too - you totally should! I'll put the link on a facebook message for you!
