re: 2021 Reading Challenge
My goal is 50 books this year. I've always enjoyed reading but with television and movies changing in a way that doesn't interest me, I've decided to really ramp up my reading and get in all that I've always said I'll read one day. I'm on track for 65 books this year and I'm not slowing down.

Good for you. I was told in another thread (in the M/TV board) by an "avid reader" that's there's "no way" anyone reads 4 to 5 books a month. He's obviously never visited the Reading Challenge.

It's not hard to read 1 book a week.

Kind of depends on the books you like to read. I'm a pretty fast reader and I can't get through a Malazan book in 1 week unless I really push nonfiction and history are also pretty difficult to just sit down and crush pages.

At the same time read plenty of 400 page books in a single sitting if I get really captured by a story.

Right now work is the busiest we have ever been and I go fishing a lot - but I get through a good number of audiobooks when I am doing that at least.

It certainly is doable by a wide range of people - but you have to be pretty committed to it, it isn't something that someone can just start doing without giving up other things that they do.
