I made it to a milestone! 300 books read and still a month to go before the year is over. I wonder how many more I will manage between now and the new year...I would like to make it to 350 but maybe that is a little to high?

Anyone want to guess? Write a comment to this post and tell me how many books you think I will read by December 31st 2007!

If you would like to win a book from my bookshelf then post a comment here stating how many books you think I will have read by the time the New Year rings in!

Everyone can enter and the closest guess will win. You can enter until 23.59pm 26th December 2007.

That's quite a bit! I know I haven't read that many this year!

How I envy you, I'm such a slow reader, my best year was 2005 when I managed to read 100 books by the end of the year. If I could read as fast as you I'd make a considerable dent in my TBR pile! ;-)


At 29 November 2007 at 10:42, Blogger Kathy

I'm going to make a guess -- 328


At 29 November 2007 at 13:32, Blogger Oriana

Wow! Well done, Amber! I never counted mine but now I'm curious.:)


At 1 December 2007 at 06:37, Blogger Amberkatze

@ Erin - I would read more but I have to go to work ;)

@ Ana - I wish my TBR pile was getting lower but books keep turning up from Amazon ;)

@ Kathy - You are the only person who made a guess so far so your chances of winning are high ;)

@ Oriana - Maybe you can start counting in 2008? Keep a list somewhere...

Let us know by the end of the year how many they were!


At 2 December 2007 at 09:29, Blogger cheesygiraffe

First off, I love what you've done with your blog Amber. It's awesome looking! :)
My guess is 335. ;)


At 2 December 2007 at 11:47, Blogger Kimberly

Wow! I'm hoping to reach at least 45 books read, but maybe I'll reach my goal of 52. Way to go, Amber!

I'm going to guess 327.


At 2 December 2007 at 13:24, Blogger Cherie

I'm going to go a little higher than the other guesses (cuz I know how you like to push yourself ;) and guess 340. :P


At 2 December 2007 at 13:51, Blogger Amberkatze

Well if I have it my way I will make it to 350...I have some time off next week and of course after the 21st I am home maybe I will read more than people are expecting ;)


At 2 December 2007 at 14:37, Blogger Dana

I will guess 331. Congrats on the large number already read

Fantastic job Amber. I did better last year but also had more time then also. Love your page here. Your pre-order list is impressive and I will check out some of those to put on my list.
I'm gonna guess that you make it to 349.

As a Bookcrosser I read a lot of books but no where near what you've read. I think you will come up to 319 this year.I would love to win a Kay Scarpetta book by Patricia Cornwell for my sister. If you would like to trade a few look for kayjay33 over at BC

Hi Amber - that's an amazing number!
I'm crimson-tide from
I know it's early days yet - but I'll guess you'll get to 446 books. Happy reading!

Oops!! It's me again (crimson-tide). I obviously meant to say 346 books!

Fantastic, you have read a bunch of books :)
My guess after some spying of your bc-profile and after detailed calculations is 331 books by the end of this year (supposing you are not planning break in Dec)
Happy new year!!


At 3 December 2007 at 00:13, Blogger Carla

Wow that's amazing. I'm already glad, that I read much more than last year (81 sofar, last year: 62)!

My guess would be that you will end this year having read 337!

Happy reading,

Hey Amber. Marlene here.

I am amazed how much you read in one year. I have plenty of time and hardly manage to read a 100 this year. (Okay I also game a lot)

Come on keep reading (whip)

Good luck on your goal from gringuitica (bookobsessed)!
