I'll shoot for 50 books. I used to be an insatiable reader (e.g., classics, fantasy, sci-fi, non-fiction, etc.), but then I went to college. Once I HAD to read for class assignments (yes, I was an English major), I stopped having time to read for enjoyment. Then I began teaching middle school English (VA's SOL tests will kill off any love of reading a child could possess) and found even less time to read for enjoyment--too much to grade and plan. I think, however, that rereading the Harry Potter series has jump-started my reading bug--that and quitting my teaching job after four years of SOL heartache.
