2012 Reads

My 2012 Read & Review Goal

100 books

My 2011 reading goal was not met. I hadn’t realized, when upping my reads from 125 in 2010 to 150 in 2011 that blogging and reviewing would cut down on reading time and so although I actually read 144 books (including re-reads), I did not read and review 144 books. I think the final tally came down to 109. So this year, I’m setting a more realistic goal. READ AND REVIEW 100 books. It may not seem like a lot, that’s less than two books per week, but given how much time blogging takes and that I want to have a little less pressure so I can enjoy what I do read and review, I’ve set a goal that I can meet. Of course my “dying to read” list is already past 125 and that doesn’t include books from 2011 that I still haven’t read, but hope to. So, we’ll see… And this year, instead of listing all the books I plan on/hope to read for the entire year, I’m only going to list the books on the pile for each month and add new ones only as I complete them.
