My Reading List

A year of reading…

A new year is upon us and my goal for this year is to read more books on my book shelf and my to be read (TBR) list.  I have so many books that have become fixtures on my book shelf and also books that were recommended to me that I haven’t thought twice about picking up.  Well, this is the year to read those books!

I plan to accomplish this goal by finishing a new book each week.  I have a SMALL goal to complete 60 books before January 1, 2019.  In a good year I generally am able to read more than 60 books. I won’t be reading only 500 page novels of course, I plan to read some smaller books.

I do have a lot going on at work and don’t want to overwhelm myself so I will include my professional development books in my book count.  I will also cheat a little and finish some books that I have already started and abandoned.

Tackling my book shelf and TBR list one book at a time will allow me to see the list grow smaller over time.   Hopefully by December 2018, I will have a much smaller TBR list 🙂.

(Of course as I wrote that I laughed at myself, TBR lists only grow longer, they will never shrink…..NEVER!)

Currently one of the hardest things about reading is choosing which book to read next.  I will eliminate this problem, by simply picking up whichever book is next on my book shelf.

Here’s to 2018 being a year of READING!
