My return has been long overdue, and I have continuously been wanting to start blogging again but kept putting it off. I am, however, going to do my best to make blogging a part of my life this year. I am not big on resolutions myself, but seeing everyone excited for the new year has kind of rubbed off on me. Which is why I am here to share with you all, the many reading goals I have and want to accomplish this year.
To start us off, I want to mention that I use Goodreads as a way to track my previous reads, TBR books, and books I am currently reading. Goodreads is also a great way to introduce yourself to new books, as well as communicate with other bookworms.
- Read every single day
This here seems to be an easy one to get done. As our days can get busy and reading may feel like a chore, it is possible. Especially when I work at least four to five days a week, I like to squeeze a book in during my twenty-minute train ride. Adding a book to your commute can help make your reading habit stronger, and your interest in the book.
- Read at least ONE book a week
52 weeks = 52 books right? It is possible with a bit of determination on your mind. For myself, I wanted to write down this goal with “at least” one because I want it to push myself to read at least two. It can work for you too, just have to find books that interest you to keep you reading and coordinate it into your day/week.
- Complete at least ONE reading challenge
I love reading challenges because they have this way of getting you excited to read. Pinterest is a great place to find boards filled with them to make searching easier for you. Another site that I like getting reading challenges from is POPSUGAR Reading Challenge. You can, of course, make your own reading challenge, including themes that interest you.
- READ BOOKS THAT ARE ALREADY ON MY SHELVES
This is absolutely something that I had to scream out loud because it is so true. Now, I don’t believe I will actually finish every single book I own. I may start some, and end up disliking it, therefore, questioning my decision for purchasing it. What I mean by this goal is to at least put a decent dent in it. I am hoping to read some books and finally have the will to let them go in order to make room for more.
That will be all I am holding myself accountable for this year when it comes to reading. I believe that this alone will keep my mind busy and excited for the many books I hope to devour in 2019. What are some of your reading resolutions you hope to accomplish in the new year?
