First of all, Happy New Year!
I love the new crayon box smell of a brand new calendar year. It’s a blank book waiting to be filled with adventures. We’ve got some great book club features lined up for this winter and spring! I’m really excited about them. But first, I wanted to share my personal reading resolutions.
I’m pleased to share that I accomplished my goal of reading 90 books in 2014. In fact, I finished my 92nd book just minutes before midnight! I think reading more audiobooks helped me accomplish this goal. This year, my goals are similar to 2014. I’m still making them public so I can be accountable.
My 2015 Reading Resolutions
- I’m joining the Goodreads Reading Challenge again. My goal for this year is 100 books. I attempted that many in 2012 & 2013 but failed miserably. Since I’m hit 92 in 2014, I figure I’ve got a shot at it. Caveats are the same as last year’s: only books I read for myself count, not the books I read for my kids. Unless my 9-year-old daughter and I are reading a book together.
- Read 12 business books. Last year I read 8 so let’s go for a cool dozen this year.
- Read and review more books by authors of color. I realized that I read plenty of books written by authors of color, but I don’t always review them here. Of course, I don’t review every single thing I read. It’s either because I don’t always have the time to do so or I didn’t enjoy the book. No need to subject you to a book I hated.
- Come clean about my leisure reading: erotica books. I read quite a bit of erotica, but don’t often write about it here. So I plan on sharing more of them at Bawdy Bookworms. The site is still under construction but my plan is to have it up and running in a couple of weeks. Make sure you join the email list!
So there are my reading resolutions for 2015.
Did you make any reading goals for the new year?
