I posted my own reading goals for 2009 on my page and I was wondering if anyone else had reading goals for the new year. Please share what books you want to read this year. You may help me to expand my goal or someone else goals list!
Well this year I just plan on reading more, last year I don't think I pick up one book, well I did pick up one book but that's it. This year I'm going to try to find more time to read. Here is the book I'm reading now "The New Rules of Marketing and Pr" By David Meerman
I read 75 last year, so I'm shooting for 100 this year. I've got 3 down so far!
I have a list of about 40 books from my own library that I've never read, and about a dozen from a competition I'm judging, another dozen from '08 Cybils nominations, and another dozen or so of my online friends' books that are coming out this year! AND whatever review books that come my way this year. OI!
I'm not a fast reader, I usually get around 50 books per year. But this year I'll try to read 100. Well, let's say this is the high mark, because due to work schedule and life issues it might not be possible. But everything between 50 and 60 or above will be great. And I have a few books and series that I definitely need to start reading :)
Nothing very specific, but I have general reading goals for the New Year.
I've always been a reader, but in the past, my budget has limited me to reading only a few books a year. After school, I never had time to go to the library, so I suppose you can say my reading material was limited by both factors, which meant I mostly stuck to Fantasy and Classic Literature, my two favorite genres.
Now, working in a publishing company and having a long commute, I now have the two things which I lacked before: Books and Time, so I've decided I will use my commute time exclusively for reading (that's about two hours a day) if I can't devote more time to it and I will expand my genres. I've always wanted to, but before there were time and budget constraints, now there's none. I've so far ventured from my Fantasy and Classic Lit genres to Literary Fiction, Non-Fiction, and Self-Help books. I've also begun listening to audiobooks.
