My goal for 2010 was to read 100 books. And as I’ve just hit 52 and the year is nearly ended that’s *so* not going to happen. I’ve read 100+ books in a year previously but my life had an unexpected change last spring and I no longer have the free time to dedicate to reading-for-pleasure that I had. My goal for 2011 is a more modest (and achievable) 52 books.
I know I should also put myself on a book diet till I’ve broken the back of Mt TBR – last time I counted, I had over 400 titles awaiting my attention. But … I don’t want to. And there’s no point saying ‘I’ll stop acquiring books’ when I know I’m not going to. Haven’t I said before that I’m an honest blogger? So ‘Stop buying books’ isn’t on the menu for this year. The good news is that I have three new bookcases in which to store the books. These are all full and I’ve another two crates … And, of course, the Kindle gives me digital storage and the ultimate in portability.
Other goals are to make more use of the library and to join/participate in a book group. I know of couple and have my name on the waiting list for a third but I really need to start pursuing this instead of waiting for the phone to ring.
What are your reading goals for 2011?
