HBRC Day 17-Goals for reading in 2013

Today we are asking you to share your goals for reading in 2013. Have you joined any challenges for the year? Do you set a goal of how many books to read on Goodreads? You can either share a link to your post or just share in the comments section what goals if any you have set.

Julie's Goals:

Unfortunately I did not make my Goodreads goal this year of 125 books. So I think that that is what I am going to set once again for 2013 and see if I can reach it. Another goal I have is to focus more on the books that I have downloaded to my Kindle. I have a tendency to just download and then forget they are there. My goal always is to whittle down that TBR stack, but I have definitely found out that that is just a dream! There are ALWAYS going to be too many books in that pile. Both in actual paper books and on my Kindle. I have also decided I am not going to join any other challenges this year. I'm trying to simplify life. While I enjoy reading challenges I find it stresses me out to not reach my goals. I finished one of two challenges that I set in 2012 and seeing the one unfinished challenge totally disappoints me!

  2. I thought would just list my reading goals here for now. I surpassed my goal of 60 books for 2012, but I don't want to feel too pressured this year. I think my goal for 2013 will be 65 books. I also intend to read more books from my school library this year. I also want to clear out some books on my ipad. I think those are all reasonable goals. I may choose to extend my goal as the year progresses.

  3. Wow, I didn't think I had many reading goals,but once I started writing, I realized I do!
    Thanks for having the HBRC again this year - it really helps me focus and is fun, too.
    Happy new year!


  4. Here's my post about my goals. Let's hope I do better than I normally do.

    1. Good goals Beverly! I am impressed that you go to the library! I have to stay away because there are too many books on my Kindle and on my shelves! Ack! I love the library though :)
