This week's theme is on Reading Goals I Still Want to Accomplish This Year. So I thought I'd look back at the goals I set in January and see which ones, if any, I've finished, which I'm still working on, and which I've completely abandoned.
#1 -- Find a book from the A shelf and finish my Reading the Alphabet Challenge.
✅ Totally did this one: I read Minor Adjustments by Rachael Renee Anderson back in January.
#2 -- Dust my bookshelves. ✅ (Though it needs doing again!)
#3-- Weed my bookshelves and donate the books I know I'll never read again.
✅ I did this at the first of the year and ended up giving away about 25 books, which freed up some much needed room on my crowded bookshelves.
#4 -- Read at least one Agatha Christie and one BLCC mystery. 😐 Haven't done this one....yet.
#5 -- Delete titles from my Goodreads list that I no longer want to read.
😕 I've been working on this one, but for every title I delete from my list I seem to add three more, defeating the whole purpose.
#6 -- Participate in Susan's Bookish Books Reading Challenge.
✅ I feel like I've been rocking this challenge this year; I've read eleven books for this challenge already, and have a few more I intend to read before the end of the year.
#7 -- Read more Science Fiction. 😐 I've read eight so far, and DNFed two others, but I had originally planned to read 1-2 each month, and I haven't done that.
#8 -- Limit my book buying to 10 books or less. 👎 Big fail. I've already bought 16 books this year...and I have a feeling I'm not done.
#9 -- Stop using the phrase "fun read" or "fun character" in my reviews. 👎 I'm not going to go back and look, but I have a feeling I've failed at this one, too.
#10 -- Check my blog's spam folder daily to rescue all those legitimate comments that keep getting sent there...including mine! ✅ Yep, I've been doing this one. Everyday. (Stupid Blogger.)
So, there are the ten goals I set back in January, and how I'm doing on them. I feel like I've accomplished 6/10. I guess that's not too bad. Maybe next year I won't set any goals at all. 🙃
