I’ve pledged to read 150 books again this year with the Goodreads 2015 Reading Challenge. I’m already 1 book behind, so that’s lovely. The Screwtape Letters: Annotated Edition by C.S. Lewis will most likely will my first completed book as it’s the book I’ve started reading. I sometimes have multiple books going at once, but I still think that will be the first I finish this year.
I’ve never really done much with New Year’s resolutions, but I do have a few book-related goals this year that I’ll share and track here.
- I want to make more conscious reading choices rather than just reading whatever pops up next on my Kindle and plowing through all the free books. Related to this, I want to stop hoarding books I really want to read like I’m saving them for some special occasion. I should actually read them instead of just anticipating the read! (I’m looking at you 2014 Kristen Ashley releases!) Also, I want to read some of the hardcovers and paperbacks on my shelves instead of defaulting to my Kindle because it’s handy.
- As part of those conscious choices, I’d like to read at least one non-fiction book each month. I don’t care if it’s a celebrity memoir or a political economics book.
- It would be nice to get more use out of my huge collection of cookbooks, so I’ll highlight one of them each month and select 2 recipes to try during that month.
- I’m committing to weekly posts here at my shiny new blog. Some weeks may have more than one new post, but I think once a week is a good goal as a start.
