Reading Resolutions?


Re: Reading Resolutions?

  • No number goals, but I want to make reading a priority.  And utilize the library more.

  • I plan on reading only books I own, can get from the library, or free from some other means.  I need to cut back on my spending and this seems like an easy way to do it.  I could probably only read the books at my house all year and still not be done!

    Now that I typed it out I have to stick to it. 

    The only exception would be gift cards.

  • I'm planning to set the reading goal to 75 this year. I have a few long books that I want to tackle, but also plan to utilize audio books more now that I have an office and can close the door. I also want to be better/more consistent with the blog. I just mapped out my editorial calendar for the year, and I'm really excited about it. I'm sure things will shift and change as time goes by, but for now I'm feeling really good about the start of the year.

  • I'm going to read everyday, even if only 20 minutes. This was easy to do until I had a second child. I'm much more sane when I am able to read everyday.

    I also want to read the entire Wheel of Time series in 2014.  I've read about 2/3 so far, but I want to start over from the beginning now that the series has concluded.
    The whole series in one year is a pretty impressive goal!
  • 15,000 pages. I wish Goodreads would let me set a page goal, because with book goals I tend to hesitate before picking up anything massive.

    6 modern Sci-Fi classics. There are a lot of things that I feel like I should have read by now but have never gotten around to.

    3 books published before 1950. This could overlap with the previous goal, but I feel like I've been reading a disproportionately large number of new works.
  • I want to:

    Read more books I own instead of always going to the library

    Read some classics that I've never read before

    Get to my goal of 214 books for the year.  I'm sure I could do it, I made last year's goal of 213.

  • I'd really like to hit 50 books this year and I'll do this by making reading a priority.

  • I would like to read books with more substance this year, less fluff, and not focus on reading a certain amount. I set a goal on GR for 75, but am not really concerned with making it this year. I would also like to branch out into different genres a little more.


  • Definitely want to read more of the books I already own and have continued to neglect.
