     Getting my heart rate up – Read 1–5 more books
     Out of breath – Read 6–10 more books
     Breaking a sweat – Read 11–15 more books
     I’m on fire! – Read 16+ more books

I know that for 2014 I want to do the 'Getting my heart rate up' again.  So I guess I will update this part on Jan 1st.  As of now I have read 66 books, which means I need to read 67-72 books...but I am also currently reading book 67 and I still have 2 weeks left, so I know I will have to update this part.

*edit*  I read a total of 69 books in 2013, 1 more then my original goal of 63-68, so yay me!  So my goal for 2014 using the 'Getting your heat rate up' will be 70-74 books!  

*EDIT*  I hit my original goal of 70-74 books.  So I am updating it to 'Out of Breath'  which is 6-10 more books then last year, which means I need to read 75-79 booksactually, I think I am going to go for 'Breaking A Sweat' which is 11-15 more books then last year.  That would put my number of books I need to read at 80-84 books.

About to start my 1st book of the new year now!  Good Luck everyone!
