Last year I read approximately 48 novels, however I also read what I'd consider to be an unhealthy amount of fan-fiction. I would like to 55-60 novels in 2013. As for genera, I'd like to read more non-fiction history books, but I'm a sucker for scifi and fantasy and romance.
I don't make resolutions, but I do plan to read a lot this year.
I have all of Vincent Di Fates books, a handful on Color and color theory (because I am almost certain I am not going to learn anything from my color class this spring), a couple of books with pulp fiction short stories, and very large hand full of art and anatomy books.
I took the Goodreads reading challenge last year and read fifty-six books, half of which were non-fiction, a fact of which I'm really proud (not to mention that I learned a lot as well.) I've dialed it back this year since I'll be busier, but plan to tackle some books that have been on my reading list for a while, some classics, and some French books.
Er.....well, I do read, but I like to read a book slowly to really absorb it's content, rater than just zipping through it. But I typically like to read books written in the old english format, i.e. Narnia and Lord of the Rings, and only fantasy. I'm a nerd for fantasy. My resolution is to simply finish reading 'The Hobbit' before the second installment of the movie is relased. xD (I tend to read four books at a time rofl)
1.) My goal is to read 50 books. That's one thing I like about goodreads is it keeps track of them all for me.
2.) Everything. I think I've given up on liking erotic because it all seems kind of the same to me , but history, YA, paranormal, fairytales, suspense/thriller, American & British classics, and the one I'm most excited about: I want to start finding writers around here who have books in our local shops and such so I can read some of their stuff and maybe somehow hopefully help them create an audience and chances for them
I haven't read a lot lately but I've got a library membership now so I read more. I go to Waterstones maybe once a month so that's an average of 24-30 books per year, and with the library I now read about 3 books every month.
I read the Book Thief yesterday night, by the way. My friend had leant me it for a while now.
I'm planning to read more of the same - fantasy, YA, children's. And all the pretty covers that catch my fancy.

It depends. I read a lot this summer, and some books I flew through while others took me a few weeks (while I read other books ). Anyways, it's the best I've ever done. It also includes school reading too.
