2013 – Welcome and Goals

01 Jan

2013

As we wave good-bye to 2012 (so long sucker!!) and ring in the 2013, it is a time to think of the year past and the year to come…and to make those (sometimes dreaded) New Years Resolutions…

So what are my resolutions for 2013 – I’m going to divided them up into reading/blogging resolutions and non-reading resolutations.

Reading/Listening Resolutions:
- read at least 12 books of my 50 classics in 5 years challenge list (HERE)
- read at least 1 non-fiction/biography/memoir a month
- finish up at least 2 of the series that I currently have in progress (series TBD)
- finish up the Middle East part of my trip around the world reading (7 countries to go – Cyprus, Lebanon, Kuwait, Oman, Palestine, Qatar)
- Participate in at least 1 group read each month in one of my Goodreads.com groups
- Try at least 20 new audiobook narrators during the course of the year
- Finish Les Miserables – I got part of the way through Book 3 before I got distracted
- Finish the Moby Dick Big Read – Chapter a Day

Blogging Resolutions
- Write reviews for my blog for at least 50% of the books I read in 2013
- Write reviews for all new narrators that I listen to
- Not request more ARC’s to review than I can handle (even if they are oh so pretty!)
- Comment on at least 5 other blogs each week
- Participate in at least one meme a week

Non Reading/Blogging Resolutions
- Finish my dissertation
- Survive (and finish) the Beach to Battleship Half-Ironman in October

What about everyone out there – what are your resolutions for 2013?
