Lightbulb 2011 Pages Challenge - What's your number?

You don't have to set a page goal unless you want to, but it might make it more interesting. If you'd like to set a goal for the number of pages you'll read in 2011, please post below.

OMG Rudi! You go girl!!!

Honestly, I am just excited to keep count and see the number grow!
I am going to be slightly more conservative. I think I have been averaging a little under 60 books per year with a page count maybe around 300 so my goal will be

18,000 pages!

Excellent goal, Michelle! I based my number of 130 books averaging 300 pages each, and then rounded up to the nearest 1,000. I've been reading in the 120-130 range the last couple of years. We'll see if I make it.

Wow Rudi!
I'm going to be much more conservative and say 10000 pages but I also have to finish at least one or the 2 needlepoints or the quilt that I have started.
