2013 – Welcome and Goals

01 Jan


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 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?
