150 Books in a Year

This year I've pledged to read 150 books.

At first I thought "How can i read 150 book in 365 days? Did I challenge myself a bit too much? Cause my philosophy was "A book a week" But then i did a little math. 

If I focus on little books this year which has 150 pages, than focusing on big books like Stephen King,James Patterson, Daniel Steel, J.K Rowling or Nore Roberts !! I think I can achieve my goal. Now you must be thinking m just reading for the sake of reading or just to complete my goal. Not really, 150 pages books are worth reading too. Any book actually is worth reading irrespective of how many pages it contains. For example; "Heaven is for real" such a popular book which is less then 150 pages. Here is a link that will take you to "Popular Books Under 150 Pages" on Goodreads. I've read the reviews, they are books worth reading. 

A little math for all of us: 

I can read 50 pages in one hour. Thats 150 pages in 3 hours. I think we can read 150 books in 150 days? 1 hour early morning and 2 hours at night? Fair enough? 

Say if i don't stress myself too much and read 150 pages in 6 hours (i.e 2 days). I'd still finish 150 books in 300 days. M still left with 65 days for Stephen King, James Patterson .. all my top 5 authors. 

The bottom line is, if you have a goal and you know how to manage your time, m sure everything is possible. And m just not talking reading. 

What say? M I right or m I right? 

Share your thoughts. 

Happy Reading !! 


  1. Happy New Year and Best wishes for the greatest success

  2. Sounds like a great challenge. I don't think I can read 50 pages per hour, I'm slow. But I do hope to read at least 50 books this year.

  3. Happy New Year 2015! That's a big challenge you've there. With all the work that I've got (writing fiction and nonfiction, in addition to household chores), I'm not sure I can even read 50 books in a year, let alone 150!

    Good luck with your endeavour. I hope I shall be around to cheer you up. Are you on Goodreads? It would be interesting to follow your reviews.
