Bookish Goals…. Wow, that’s deep and profound… Kind of like resolving?!?
Here they are, in no particular order... just what came off of the brain pan first!
*I will be on top of the Reading Challenge that I created – make sure I have links up for people to put up their reviews before the middle of the month approaches – and actually complete my own reading challenge… it should be great fun! (And I hope you take my Challenge, too!)
*Read more books from my shelf! As mentioned last week, we have several book cases, and I have a lot of books that I haven’t read.
*Do better about reading the books that I have requested from netgalley.com – this year it has been a lot of self-help types of books, in hopes of helping me with my Health Coach training and working towards my Certified Personal Trainer.
*I will continue to use the library as much as possible for books I am looking for. I am pretty good about going to the library first, before impulse buying a book!
*I will continue to write reviews for books. I fell in to the habit of writing quick GoodReads reviews for books that I really didn’t care about last year. This year, I will try to write and post reviews here for ALL books I read.
*Organize my GoodReads shelves better! Go through and clean up categories as well as create new categories.
*Write down books that I really want to find at those second hand bookstores, so when I go, I have an actual list in my purse to help me find what I am looking for.
*Start working on an A-Z list of books. I think it is even one of my 101 things to do, and I haven’t even begun a list – well, I have started a list, but haven’t progressed on that.
*Memorize a poem. I have said I wanted to do this for years, but haven’t done it. We were watching Must Love Dogs again the other night, and I loved how the dad was known for the poems he quoted and how his children would guess which poet would be quoted!
*Read the 50k words that I wrote for NaNoWriMo in 2011 and finish the darned thing…if for no other reason than for our daughter who loves the story bits I send her while she is in Basic Training!
On a side note, last year I vowed to not buy any books (over $3.00) and I did really well with that! Our bookcases were thankful! What do you hope to accomplish this year? Did you stick to any of your bookish resolutions last year?!
