Can you read 100 books in a year?

I like reading, but maybe I don’t love it because I just read on my spare time instead of making time to read. Also, I’m a super slow reader, it could take me more than a month to finish one book!
But I do like books, and I would love to someday have a whole shelf full of books in my home and brag that I read every single book on it. 
Last year my “new years resolution” was to read 100 books. I chose them myself, some are classics, some I’m just interested in, and some I had read before and wanted to re-read them again now that I’m supposedly more mature. 
So, this that list of books and by the way, I could not finish 100 books in a year so the challenge keeps going, maybe it will take me a few years. I’m super slow…
