It’s that time again, and I’m looking forward to some fun reading this year. I’m also looking forward (and thinking positively) about doing really well on the challenges I’m setting for myself.
First, of course, I’ll read the books on the Cybils Shortlist. I’ve just seen the list and am having a love/hate reaction to the list as a whole. Let’s see what happens when I start reading…
Next, I’m going to get back to the Nancy Drew Challenge. I swear!
I’m also going to read more from my own stacks this year. My goal is twelve (not added in 2013…) I really need to do this.
I’m going to play with the Book to Movie Challenge because we never watch movies and it would be fun to see some books brought to the big screen. Right? (I could use recommendations for this one!)
Some non-reading but book related challenges I’m also working on are:
- I’m going to start using GoodReads. Or try to. (Wish me luck, I’m going to need it.)
- I really want to get back in the habit of reviewing my reading every month. (Mostly because it helps me at the end of the year with my tallies but also because I think it helps me keep on track with my challenges. Wish me luck, again.)
- I’m going to donate $1 for every book I read, to charity — but which charity? If you’ve got suggestions, share them! I have all year to decide…
And that’s it. Happy reading in 2013 to you all.
