Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN:
Reading, Blogging or whatever Goals for 2015!
There are a lot of things I want to accomplish in 2015. I know this technically is supposed to be a Top Ten but I just didn’t want to cut myself short so I combined it into my entire Goals for 2015 post! I hope I can still achieve all these things considering I’m having a baby in March!
– set my 2015 Goodreads reading goal to 200 books!
– read more of my already purchased books that have been sitting in my shelves for years (I’m already making great headway on this). I’m hoping to do at least two a month.
– make room for more “backlist” titles. This ties in directly with my read my already purchased books goal. Often I see friends have read an older book that sounds fabulous that I want to read but I never seen to make room for it.do I’m going to try more to do so!
– grant myself even more of a go ahead to DNF more books. I’ve already been doing much better on this DNF’d at least 4 books in 2014
