I am a goal person, not a resolution person. And, honestly, I am a bit anal about the whole thing--we're talking excel spreadsheets and phone apps and all that. It's pretty sad.
So, I do set reading goals for myself each year. I tend to stay away from reading challenges, although I did sign up to do the Jazz Age challenge for January (it only involves reading one book). That being said, here are my goals for this year.
- Read 105 books this year. I met my 100 books for 2013 goals a few days early, so I thought I'd up this by 5% this year.
- Read at least 7 hours a week. Last year, my goal was 6 hours a week and, by the middle of the year, I was in the groove on this one. I debated making this a "read 1 hour a day" goal, but I realized that life happens--especially when little kids are involved--so I decided to give myself a little leeway on this. Honestly, though, I think this one will be pretty easy.
- Post here at least 10 times a month. After the "Saturday Snapshots" posts and monthly wrap up posts, that's a minimum of about 5 reviews a month. Again, should be easy.
I will admit that my goals here are on the simpler side. Mostly, these are to keep my on track when I hit a slump (it happens to all of us). Some of the goals for other parts of my life a little more ambitious, so don't think I'm a total slacker.
Happy New Year everyone!
