Reading GOALS for 2017

That’s right… I’ve got GOALS for reading this year.

Because, why should this year be any different from the previous ones?

Of course, this year I intend to actually meet most of these goals — which I didn’t manage last year. Of course, I did take half the month to even get this posted so, I’m totally on track to for this… really I am….

I don’t expect this to really happen — not sure I’m actually capable of not buying ANY form of books for a whole year — but I am going to make a concerted effort to use the library and read through a lot of the books that I already own.  Because I do own a great many that need to be read. I managed to find someone who is actually hosting a challenge of this, so I’ve decided to join up on that.

Because I was at a total loss I decided to start with the first one (probably one of the hardest for me) and tracked something down at the library that will count as a “Sports Book.” I think, for the most part, this wouldn’t be too hard of a challenge this year, if I weren’t trying to also combine it with the “Read My Own Damn Books” Challenge and….

I stacked up a pretty hefty list but didn’t get through any of them last year.  The Classics Club is a cool group – you should check them out!

I will also, of course, be doing some reading for Banned Book Week again this year  – looking forward to the updated list of most-challenged books of 2016 so I can get started on reading.

What are your reading goals for the year? What kind of books are you hoping to read?

  1. I think my biggest goal in reading this year is to write more book reviews on my blog. (I’m getting pathetically haphazard about posting lately, so that could be a really good boost for me, blog-wise.) That Read Harder challenge looks good, too; I may try it. (Though finding a “sports” book I want to read will be beyond tough. I wonder of a sports manga like “Prince of Tennis” or something would count…)

  2. Ooh… I’m veeery tempted to join both of these in addition to Read Harder, since reading more of my own books (to get rid of them before I move again) and reading more classics (just ’cause) are both things I want to do right now…
