    I woke up feeling optimistic about writing this year. I want to put out at least two titles, hopefully I can write more than that. And reading… I can’t put a number on that <3

    1. 1 book a year on average so far.
    2. 1 book last year
    3. 2 books is my goal for this year!
    4. I read about 1 every week or so
    5. No idea how many I read last year
    6. *Shrug* I’ll read as many as I can. If I put a number on it, it stops being fun.

    Hope that helps!

    I book in 2012. I am hoping to publish 4 this year. The second in my Berriwood series and a trilogy of children’s chapter books. I probably read about thirty books per year, certainly about that last year but I have put in my Goodreads challenge at 49 for 2013 so hope to reach that goal though some may be short stories or novellas. Happy New Year!

      Sorry – spelt my name wrong (Unsworth) – must be getting late!

    I wrote three complete novels last year, and I’m planning to write four complete novels this year, and make significant headway on at least two more. Thanks to GoodReads, I know I read 66 books last year. I’d like to read at least 50 this year.

    On average, I write a book or two (first draft) per year. Last year I wrote roughly 1.5 new novels, and I also finished major revisions on another WIP. I’m not sure that I have a yearly reading average, but last year I read 21 books and this year I’m aiming for 25. We’ll see how it goes! ^_^

    I write with a co-author, my wife. Over the last three years we’ve averaged 4.7 books a year. Last year we put out just three but plan on releasing 4 by February this year.
    As far as reading goes – There are 64 books in my ‘Read 2012′ Kindle folder. I may have skipped entering a few though. So far this year I’ve read two, The latest being The Pyramid Legacy by Clive Eaton
