75 in 2006 – Progress Report

Attentive readers might remember that I joined Ed in setting 75 books as my goal for 2006. For most of the year I was right on track, but the start of football season, the Detroit Tigers’ trip to the World Series, and few other things knocked me off track lately. I am back up and running but still behind. As of today, I have read 59 books. Unless my math is off, 75 books in 12 months means 6.25 books a month. Through 10 months that leaves me 3.5 books short. I have to read 8 books in the next two months to meet my goal. That is daunting but still doable (I hope to make up some ground during the holidays believe it or not). If you want to see the books I have read so far, and track my progress, the list is here.

What about the peanut gallery? How many books have you read this year? Has it been a typical year, a down year, or a better than average year? What keeps you from reading? Have at it in the comments.

I work in communications and public affairs. I try to squeeze in as much reading as I can while still spending time with my wife and two kids (and cheering on the Pittsburgh Steelers and Michigan Wolverines during football season).

  1. I’ve read 52 books this year, and that was my goal (one book for each week). It’s definitely the highest number of books that I’ve read in a year since I started keeping track of how many books I read annually. In 2007 I definitely hope to read more.
