I LOVE this time of year for one reason: the open-ended dreams of what one might read in the year ahead. (And getting to read all of your reading goal blog posts, of course!) I’ve mentioned before that I was planning NOT to have any reading goals for 2018, which I haven’t done before since I’ve been blogging.
Upon further reflection, I decided to set two small, teensy, you-have-to-squint-to-see-them goals.
A. Read one book a month from the unread books I already own. At current count I have 45 unread books in the house (with three on the way from Barnes and Noble – Christmas gift card!) If I can read 12, that’s a fourth of my own unread books.
B. Read The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas. Yes, I was supposed to have read this in 2017 as part of my 40 For 40 goal list – you even voted on which intimidating classic tome I should read! I’m excited to finally get to it.
That’s it. No other reading goals. I am trying to refrain from joining challenges and readalongs this year as well, but I’ll probably do Cathy’s Reading Ireland Month in March and the R.I.P. Challenge this fall.
As for my 40 For 40 List, I’ll write an update post about that in the next few days. I’m still going to work on this in 2018 – after all, I’m 40 till May! 🙂
Best of luck with all your reading and personal goals this year!
