BTT: Reading Resolutions

btt2.jpgSo … any Reading Resolutions? Say, specific books you plan to read? A plan to read more ____? Anything at all?

Name me at least ONE thing you’re looking forward to reading this year!

My main resolution is to read 200 books.  I don’t know if I can do it, but I’m willing to give it a try.  In reality, I’d just like to top this year’s total of 184.  I’m sure that’s the most ever!  One of my other goals is to re-read more.  I have so many books I’d like to read over again, but with a now 300+ TBR pile, it’s nearly impossible to justify that to myself.  So I want to focus more on what I want to read, not on what I’m supposed to be reading.  That said, I’m also on a mission to clear out my ARCs.  I think I’ve received almost everything I requested and plan to only ask for books I really want to read from this point forward.  Before I go back to England, I’m trying to read all my outstanding books for review; i.e., the ones that have already been released.  I still have a few there and those will be my first priority when I arrive.

Finally, I’d really like to complete some reading challenges!  I failed miserably last year so I’m trying again.  I have three small ones on tap, along with the big 200 one, and with the number of books I read, I really should be able to complete them.

  • 200 books is a lot of books to read while you’re in school – good luck with your goal!

  • I want to work on my TBR pile too; it’s not as large as yours, but it bothers me. Happy New Year.

  • Good luck with your goals this year, Meghan! I do hope to read more this year. And I hope to do better in my challenges. I’ve tried to rig them so I would. We’ll see though. LOL

    I think my resolution will be to read more than you, so if I have to read 200+, then I have to read 200+. I also want to reread some and finish my TBR pile (only like five among books I own, but closer to 100 on the computer and a few that I have returned to the library unread).

  • Good luck reading 200 books! Maybe in a few years I will work my way up to that, who knows!

  • wow! a 200-book challenge?!? I’m impressed!

    I didn’t make any “resolutions”, but I do have some plans … my BTT post is >a href=”http://www.sheistoofondofbooks.com/2009/01/01/booking-through-thursday-reading-resolutions/”>here.
