I am a list-maker by nature.
In fact, the project management tool I use at work is entirely list-based and it’s the best thing that ever happened to me.
Making New Year’s resolutions is something that I really enjoy doing every year. Even if the motivation fades, in the moment I feel extremely motivated and excited for the future.
Therefore, I make a few New Year’s Resolutions lists based on the category: Bookish, Book Blog/BookTube, Professional, and Personal. I’m hoping to share a least a couple of these with you.
Here are my Bookish New Year’s Resolutions:
Read 200 books
This year I upped my goal by 50 books and I’m struggling to reach 200! I definitely want to push myself, but I don’t think I can hit 250, so I’m going to keep it here t 200.
Read more books that I already own (audio, physical, ebooks)
I’m notorious for hoarding books. I’d really like to focus on the books that I already own.
Clean out my Goodreads TBR shelf
I already try to do this once a month – 10 books at a time – but I think I may bump that to twice a month, 15 books at a time.
Read more physical books
Because of the convenience of audiobooks, I tend to read more of those, however, I always forget how relaxing it is to just sit and read a book – without double-tasking.
Read more eBooks
I probably read less ebooks than any other format, however, it is so convenient to read eBooks. I always keep my Kindle in my purse because I never know when an opportunity will strike. I also love how easy I can highlight quotes and make notes… and then access and share them later. I just need to utilize this tool more often.
Imprint all of the books on my shelves
I bought myself this amazing little tool that imprints my name with “From the Library Of…” and I just think it’s so special! I’ve only done a handful of my books, but I’d really like to get every book I own imprinted.
Read more books written in verse
I recently finished Blood Water Paint by Joy McCullough which is written in verse, and I adored it. Not only did I read it quickly because of this, but I so appreciated the format.
Read more graphic novels
This is a type of book that I don’t frequently read, however, I’ve enjoyed reading them when I have picked them up.
