    I'll be happy if I read 12 books this year, and truthfully that most likely won't happen as there's so little these days that really peaks my interest that much. Though if comics count that could be much higher as I've been letting some of the series I read build up issues before picking them up again.

    My reading time is very low as well. But I'm hoping the high goal will force me to find clever ways to increase it!

    I would like to finish 1 a week, but that's probably not going to happen. I don't read fast enough. I only finished 36 this year. Although several were long ones. The 2 GRRM GOT books I read took a long time.

    Not sure of single issues but graphic novels do count.So what you do is keep reading your comics and when you know lets say issue 1-6 of Hellboy is being released in graphic novel form you add the title through good reads then you are set.That is how I do it to keep track.

    In the Good Reads directions for Librarians, graphic novels count, but not individual issues. Libs are instructed to remove them when found.

    I'd love to be able to read that much, but that would be virtually impossible for me. Not enough time to spare.

    You read my mind. I was thinking about this while standing in line this morning at the grocery store. If you have not set it up I will try.

    Well, it was a thought I had, but my book was demanding all my attention!

    Of course, looking at the lists that people have made on goodreads, has increased my list of "want to read". I have pretty much organized my "my books" list to reflect the ones I own, followed by the ones I am interested in getting. So, that being said, I have pretty organized the list into the order I think I will read.

    You have to refresh after you add your books. This ws a concern of mine at first last yr but once I refreshed or went to the list it did show up with the correct number of books.
