Change Yearly Reading Goals in Apple Books
Apart from setting the daily goals to finish a single book, you can even create yearly goals as well. Instead of focusing on the amount of time you spend reading books, the Yearly Reading Goals focus more on the number of books you finish in a year.
The daily reading goals will appear on your Apple Books apps from the moment you add your first book to the library. However, the yearly reading goals in Apple Books will not appear until you finish your first book. Thus, in case you want to set the yearly reading goals in Apple Book, you have to finish a book first.
You can also open a book and skip to the last page to make it look like you finished reading. If you have already finished a book and want to set up yearly reading goals, follow the below steps.
- Open Books app.
- Go to Reading Now tab.
- Scroll down and find “Book Read This Year” under the “Reading Goals” section.
- Tap on the gray area or the “3 more books to reach your goal” tag.
- Tap “Adjust Goal.”
- Choose the number of books per year from the menu and tap done.
