Goals for the New Year

As the new year dawns, I've been thinking of my goals for the year as they pertain to reading and blogging. This year, I am hoping to focus a lot more on my reading. In 2009, I read many more books than I had read the previous year, and I plan to increase that number once again in 2010. Here are a few of my goals.
  • Get through my TBR pile ~ I have eleven books still sitting in my TBR pile as of January 1, 2010. I am determined to read each and every one of those books by the end of the year.
  • Read all book club selections ~ In 2009, I read all of the books chosen for my monthly book club. I plan to do the same in 2010.
  • Complete challenges ~ I signed up for three 2010 challenges: Countdown 2010, Support Your Local Library and Support Your Local Authors. Countdown 2010 ends on 10/10/10, and I've already read 13 of 55 books for that. The books I choose for the other two challenges will be selected based on completing the Countdown 2010 challenge. For Support Your Local Library, I need to borrow 25 books from the library in 2010, so I am planning to borrow at least two per month to meet that goal.
  • Write reviews on a regular basis ~ I haven't set up a specific schedule for this blog, but I do have some regular features: It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is on Mondays (obviously), What My Children Are Reading This Week is on Saturdays. In addition, I will write at least one review each week, but most weeks I hope to complete two or three, with a mix of nonfiction, adult and young adult fiction, and children's books.
Have you set goals for 2010? I'd love to hear what you have planned! You can also share your goals at Bookworming in the 21st Century.


  1. Great goals! Happy New Year!! :)

  2. I'm trying to catch up after a busy holiday season and two blog-less weeks!

    These are great goals! I may just adopt them for myself.

    Happy New Year!



Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear your thoughts!
