    I just a few questions before I decide that I am in if that is ok:

    1.)Some books I have already read I plan to go back and re-read this year for various reasons, some to tie in with events and other shorts. So does re-reading a book from the past count??

    2.)When keeping track, do I post a new post each time with what I read or add to one post overall, aka just re-edit my original post of the list?

    Thanks for the Help!

    Added a Few More:

    3.)Issues that we get Online count, they don't have to be physical copies, they can be online issues or the ones we get on collections on DVD-ROMS?

    4.)When we are doing Manga, allot of Manga's have several chapters in a book, do we count the chapter as 1 issue or the whole book as 1 issue?

    Thanks Again!
    1 re-reads count

    2 1000 posts from each participant would be a bit much . Better to just edit your op every week or so (Or just tally them up at the end of the year).

    3 any format counts whether it's digital, physical, audiobook (imagine the fun you could have with onomatopoea), or even Braille

    4 each volume is one book, not each weekly instalment (or chapter). omnibus editions and Vizbigs would count as 2-4 comics depending on how many volumes comprise the book.

    I don't know if you're referring to manga (which I know nothing about) or not? But I like the OP's idea of counting each ~22-page comic as one issue. Some comics will have less pages, some will have more. A Marvel omnibus containing 30 issues ought to count as 30 issues, so that we're comparing apples to apples.

    I read too many comics over 2014, so my plan for 2015 is to read less so I can actually get more stuff done.

    Yet at the same time my list is very, very long indeed, and after Christmas I have like 2000 pages of comics to read.

    I'll be busy!

    Yes, we're talking about manga. Manga omnibuses are completely different from marvel omniboo, so we are in fact comparing apples to oranges (or kumquat, dragon fruit; it doesn't really matter).

    I'm in! What about doing monthly updates (so listing what we've read in a new post every month) so we can keep track of each others progress without posting for every new issue?

    So far I've read:
    Spectre #13-22
    Showcase #80
    The All Star JSA event (9 issues)
    Phantom Stranger (1969-1974) #1-5
    First 4 Wednesday comics stories (2 issues)
    Skreemer #1-6
    Superior Iron Man #3
    Ant Man #1
    The Fade Out #4
    All-new X-factor #18
    Inhuman #10
    Black Science #11
    Green Arrow Year one #1-6

    Total= 43 issues

    I'm well underway

    I currently use the website goodreads.com to catologue the collected editions that I read. They give you an annual summary of all the books you've read at the end of each year, and you can sort your books by the date that they were completed at any time; It's pretty cool.

    They're currently beginning the annual reading challenge where you can set a goal for how many books you want to read, and the website will keep track of your progress:

    My goal is to read fifty-two non-comic books in 2015; one novel a week.

    Damn, that's a pretty big amount of novels. I rarely read novels and when I do I read them slowly, so I take about a month for a 300 page novel. I tip my hat to you

    I'm a slow reader too. I might lower my goal to a more realistic 26 novels a year, but I'm feeling reinvigorated after the long Christmas break so I'm shooting high.

    Looks like canadianaidan64 already answered this, but here's my answer for anyone wanting to know:

    1- Re-reading counts.
    2- If you liked the book you just read or if you want to start a little discussion then by all means feel free to use this thread, if you want it you can also list everything in your first post on this thread (I'm doing both).
    3- You can read comics anyway you want, this thread is open to all!
    4- I read a lot of manga so I'm counting each volume (roughly 5 chapters) as 1 comic since I feel 1 chapter doesn't take me as long to read as a comic. However, you can make your own rules about this one!

    I've read zero comics this year so far, though I'm 2 books down already and about to start a third. Based on my purchases in 2014 I don't think I will get near 1000 comics unless I do a lot of re-reading.

    My 2014 resolution was to read 12 novels in that year.

    I read 2 1/2...

    Velvet #1-5

    I'm afraid this threat will disappear soon, how about we enter the amounts in our signatures?
