Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week they come up with a topic and invite whoever wants to add their own list to their own blog.
I really do dislike goals. I mean, I make them all the time, but get so frustrated when I can’t keep them. But, despite that, today’s Top Ten is making me think of things I need to do this year as far as books go.
Today’s Top Ten are my 2013 Bookish Goals:
Read more classics – I even made my own little reading challenge!
Actually READ NetGalley books – I have oh so many approved requests that I haven’t even touched. I need to be better about this!
Frequent used bookstores less – a) my pocketbook can’t take it anymore and b) I have no more room on my shelves!
Read the books I own – I have soooo many books I need to read but keep passing over for library books and borrowed books. I want to read these books I own, but I keep thinking “Oh, I’ll just get to it later.” It’s a bad habit!
Listen to audiobooks more regularly – I adore audiobooks and for a while was listening to them all the time. I need to do that more often!
Share – People share books with me. I need to be fair and share books with others!
Clean up my shelves – My shelves are ridiculous with the amounts of books I haven’t read. See “frequent used bookstores less.”
Limit library request binges – I’m sure we all do this, but I get a little crazy sometimes and will end up requested like 10 books and they all come in at once and I get overwhelmed and panicked and end up not reading them. Bad library patron!
Utilize Goodreads better – I used it for a while to keep track of what I was reading, what I had read and wanted to read. But then just stopped. I need to use it more so I can remember all the books I want to read!
Read outside the box – Lately I think I’ve been in a reading slump. Not that books I’ve read have been bad, but that they’re all starting to be the same. I want to read things that may be outside my comfort zone or a genre I haven’t given much attention to.
