My goal was originally 75 but I surpassed that by a long shot!  Next year I think I am going more for quality over quantity and I bought a ton of LARGE classic novels to start.  I also really want to hold off on the library and try to make it through my overstuffed bookcases a little.  My goal is to only check out books that are part of any series that I am already reading.  I am going to try not to buy any books either.  I might use my library bookstore though since they're all around 50 cents apiece.  My local used bookstore is going out of business in a few months and she's promised me a large discount since I'm a frequent shopper so I might have to pick up a few ones from there, too!
