I'm a librarian who loves anime, manga, and reading a wide variety of genres.
Every year, I set my reading goal to whatever number of works I managed to finish in the previous year. This year, that meant I had to read 142 works. I was doing pretty good for a while, and then I spent a huge chunk of the year way behind. Even my vacation reading didn't quite get me caught up, so I've been reading short works since I finished Champion of the Rose earlier this month.
I just hit 142. Do you know what that means? That means I can go back to reading full novels again if I want to!
