We’re three days into 2015! Hands up if you’ve broken any of your New Year’s resolutions yet… *hand slowly creeps up*. I think it would probably be best if we all started again on Monday morning.
I’m so excited to now be outlining my reading goals for this year. I’m determined to make this year an exciting and successful one and what with moving out of my Mom’s and in with my boyfriend, I’m certain that it will be.
As for my book goals, I’ve got a couple in mind. Last year, I attempted to read a book or poem from each writer on my Waterstones calendar. I managed to read 9 out of 12 which is a lot more than expected! I also managed to complete NaNoWriMo and my Goodreads reading challenge of reading 25 books in 2014. So overall, a successful year!
However, this year I have a whole new challenge in mind.
I’m going to attempt a book buying ban for six months! (Que the scary music.) As I have about a million books that are lying ignored on my TBR pile, I thought I’d cut that number down by attempting to not buy any books until the end of June.
I contemplated trying to hold out for the whole year but the thought of being away from book shops for that long filled me with dread.
– I’m allowed to receive books as gifts from friends and family. (But I’m not allowed to ask for them)
– I’m allowed to receive books from publishers and/or authors (but I’m not allowed to request them)
– I’m allowed to borrow books from friends and the library
– I can buy books as gifts for other people however I’m under no circumstances am I allowed to buy any books for myself.
What have I gotten myself in to?!
I’m also going to up my GoodReads reading challenge goal to 40 books this year. So, I better get a wiggle on and start reading!
What are your reading goals for this year?
