Happy New Year’s Eve everyone! Boy, 2017 has been a ride, and a good one at that. It was a very good year for me book-wise. I crushed my goal of reading 40 books by reading 56 total – something I didn’t think would happen after starting graduate school, but it did!
The new year is going to be a little different though, as I’ll be lowering my goal somewhat due to the fact that I’ll have two full-time semesters coming up. It’s no doubt that most of my free-reading will be in the summer when I’m on break (or late at night if I can’t sleep). If I think my goal is too easy to achieve, then I’ll rise it mid-year.
So, like most of my fellow bookworms/nerds/dragons, I have a few reading resolutions for 2018 that I’m going to work to make happen.
Tabby’s Reading Resolutions for 2018
- Read 25 books (maybe 30).
- Read at least 10 of the books I already own and haven’t read.
- Keep a new reading journal.
- Go on a book-buying ban for at least a month.
- Complete my 2018 Reading Challenge List.
- Re-organize my bookshelves.
- Weed out my book collection.
- Read/review 3 ARCs.
To be honest, I think all of these will be pretty easy! Well, the book-buying ban is going to be a challenge, but if I can do it, I know it’ll be worth it. I do have other goals for the year that aren’t book-related, which can be found on my Goals for 2018 page. Again, most of them are basic, but one thing I hate is having goals and not achieving them – I like to make them something I can definitely do as long as I put the effort into it.
Do you have any goals for 2018?
