    I'm in again. I'm going to set my starting goal at 100 this time, because 52 has been too easy for two years in a row now. I didn't quite hit 100 in either of the last two years but it wouldn't be a challenge if I set a safe number, now would it?

    I'm also doing the Modern Mrs Darcy reading challenge lists this year to mix my reading up a bit more than I might just by picking books out of personal interest. (Details here if anyone else is interested: http://modernmrsdarcy.com/reading-challenge-2017/).

    I set my goal at 40 on Goodreads. I am not a fast reader.

    I want to join! I recently moved into an apartment that is directly across the street from our town's main library. At first that just seemed like a nice view but now I am taking full advantage of my location and reading a lot. I really like the fact that if I check out a book that turns out to be a dud, I can quit that book, return it and find something else with ease. The main branch of the library building is three stories and takes up a full city block. I think that means I will not run out of choices.

    So put me down for 104. That is only two a week. I should mention that when I moved I made the decision NOT to get cable tv so reading has been an important part of my daily routine.
