Happy New Year, readers, bloggers, and bookworms!
New year, new challenge. Once again, I’m participating in the Goodreads Reading Challenge, where one sets a goal for a number of books to read in that year. The books need to be completely read, and they can be anything: children’s books, nonfiction, fiction, manga, comics, you name it! In 2011, I read 55/55 for my very first challenge, and in 2012 I read 51/45 for my second challenge.
This year, I’m shooting for 50. It looks like I can manage.
Another personal goal, as a poor graduate student/bookseller, is to check out books from the library more often. I get a great discount as a bookseller, and tend to run off and buy every book in sight that I’m slightly interested in. This year, I’m going to slow down, read the book at the library, and then go through the inner debate of “Should I buy the ebook or the print book?” [Hint: I may have a Nook, but I still tend to veer toward print book.]
What is your reading challenge for 2013? Do you have any personal book goals?
