I realized after moving how many books I have (over 800.) So, I am trying to get through as many as I can this year.

January so far:
The Big Sleep
Farewell, My Lovely
The Independence of Miss Mary Bennet
A Beautiful Blue Death
The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes
Psmith, Journalist

My goal currently is 75, but I might change it depending on how much I can read in the next couple of months.

I spoke a little too soon. Had a lazy Sunday and was able to read all of Used and Rare. Definitely a great read--especially if you are considering collecting books.

Just finished The Loved One and I find I didn't like as well as his others which I have read, but the ending was very poetic. I highly recommend, but some might not get his humor.

It is halfway through the month and I have not been able to finish any more books. I have made considerable progress in Wolf Hall and just started Darkover Landfall. Hopefully I will be able to finish both of them soon.

There's still half a month ahead of you. I hope you like the books!

Finished Darkover Landfall and am almost done with Bands of Mourning. I highly recommend Brandon Sanderson. This is the 10th book of his I have read and it is amazing.

I did enjoy it. There were points where it was boring and slow, but on the whole it was very good.

Finished Busman's Honeymoon this morning. I always love a good mystery and I am going to be sad when I finish this series. Puts me at 13 for the year, but only 2 this month.

Where did April go? I got so busy I wasn't able to finish anymore books, but I currently have 3 in progress. Hopefully I will get to them soon and have a successful month in May.

Wow....I completely forgot to update Librarything with my progress. It is a very good thing I keep a running list of all the books I read.

Picking up where I left off.

June:
Jeeves and the Fuedal Spirit
One, Two Buckle my Shoe
Evil Under the Sun

July:
Piper in the Woods
Murder at the Brightwell
Death in an English Cottage
Death Wears a Mask
An Artist of the Floating World
Five Little Pigs
Castle Rackrent
The Canterville Ghost
The Colour of Magic

August:
Jeeves in the Offing
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
Crowned and Dangerous

September:
The Hollow
The Outstretched Shadow
The Shattered Tree
Rumpole of the Bailey
The Labors of Hercules

Total of 20 plus the 18 I had already read has me at 38. A little low for what I wanted and I am pretty sure I can't make the 75 I wanted this year. So my number is being revised to 52. I think I can manage another 14 by the end of the year.

Edit--Having some issues updating my ticker...I will try and see if it updates correctly in a couple days. Then maybe try again.

I think other people were having issues with their tickers as well, so it could be a problem with the site.

Great reading list! It makes me think I should add another Agatha to the to-read pile :)

Updating with October and the first week of November.

October:

The Light Fantastic
Trials of Rumpole
The Titan's Curse
Thrice the Brinded Cat Hath Mew'd

November:

Foundation
Death at the President's Lodging
Austenland

I didn't feel well last weekend and took advantage by spending most of it in bed reading.

Total is officially at 45.

Sadly only adding one more for December and ending 2 shy of my revised challenge.

I'd say 50 books is still pretty darn impressive! Happy new year!
