  1. I am doing much better than last year and I hope that will continue as there are no shortage of free books.
    I am hoping that I might go past my goal of 24 books and at least reach the 36 but we will see.

  2. Just posted third book. I did look on Amazon and the book is listed as free right now, also. I also happen to own the same book in paper form which I did not remember reading.

    1. I have a couple ebook/paperback duplicates myself. It happens, right? Good job, btw! Keep it up!

  3. I've read 15 books so far... not bad ;) If I average it out, I read 70 last year, which is about 6 a month so I'm on the same track I suppose.

    I have both my Seriously Series list and my Why Buy the Cow list on the same page. Since there is a fair amount of overlap involved it works.

    1. *high five* Suh-weet! What were you aiming for with freebies? The 50 book range? Or are you being daring and going for 100?

    2. Officially 50, but you never know. I'll have to see how far I am at the 6 month mark. ;)

    3. I'm pretty sure you're going to hit 50 without a hitch. Unless you stop reading all together. I say... aim for 75. Just as a personal goal.

  4. I have read 4 books so far - two of them are still waiting for their review (I must confess I'm a little bit afraid of writing reviews in English, but it's getting better (I hope!) ;-)).
    "Lausbubengeschichten" is a bavarian classic, therefore the review is completely in German. :-)
