    Welcome! You don't have to make your target 1,000, you can set it lower

    Here is a link to how I do it. I cover what I've read that month but with an up-to-date master list in the same post, once per month. You'll figure out a way that works for you though

    I think I am going to post a small list of what I have read for the week with the yearly total. Then post the master list at the end of the year. Last year I posted my master list every month and that was a lot to scroll through. Will post my list from my reading from Sunday to Saturday.
    Favorite teams. Alpha Flight, Avengers, Fantastic Four, West Coast Avengers, Justice Society of America, Legion of Superheroes.

    Pull List - Lois Lane, Amazing Mary Jane, Black Cat, Doctor Doom, Gwen Stacy, Jane Foster Valkyrie, Morbius Savage Avengers, Strike Force, Something Is Killing The Children

    My name change was approved. Old name. Tbaron

    Never mind. I will do posts for monthly reading. Posting every week would just clog the thread.

    I donít know about everyone else, but getting weekly updates from other users would help keep my motivation up.

    Welcome and good luck with the small ones! Maybe you can make it a team effort and get the kids to participate as well

    I am one of the lucky ones who will hit 1000 or over. I dont work and am a caretaker for my disabled father. Once I get him settled or when he is sleeping I read comics. Right now comics are my only real hobby so I can read a ton. On a good week I can crank out 70-80 issues.

    Thanks! That’s super thorough. I think I’m going to set up a Google sheet for it and use a similar format.

    I see you were waylaid by PoE. Gaming is going to be my main downfall, too.

    You're welcome! If you're happy to, you could share your spreadsheet here and others might use it. I've always meant to make one. I love a spreadsheet

    I was waylaid by PoE, but no more. I find that games like PoE (even though I play entirely solo) tend to suck me in too much and it negatively impacts the rest of my life. The only exceptions are Elder Scrolls and Diablo II, the latter being one of the most constant things in my life. I'm trying to stick to Diablo II and reading

    Iíll share it for sure once I make it!

    I keep wanting to give Diablo II a try. Is it too late to play it for the first time?

    Absolutely not! I'm part of an online community of people who play Diablo II single player offline, and we still get new players and it's a really tight knit community. We have community events and put a lot of effort into sharing our characters, a couple of people add a lot of storytelling We also arguably have the most knowledgeable players around, so there's a lot of support for new players.

    Go for it! This was the last one in the main series that we got. I believe the youth series will follow.
