2017 Reading Plans

I can hardly believe it, but the year once again is at a close and plans for the coming year are being made, at least some plans.  I have some reading plans and non-reading plans, but I won't bore you with the non-reading plans because they are the usual one that most people make.

So I will let you know of the reading plans that I have.

Here is what I plan to do reading wise:

  • try to read more diversely and read more authors that are non-white
  • read outside of my usual genres.
  • read the books that are taking up space in my bedroom and other places
  • donate books that I know I am not going to read
  • if I take out books from the library, if I haven't opened up the book in the 2-3 weeks that I have had it, I will take it back
  • try to focus on one or two books at time.  I find that if I have more than 2 books going on, I seem to lose focus on one of them and it becomes hard to get back into that book.
  • be more willing to not finish a book that I am not getting or is not gelling with.
  • post reviews on blog again.  I stopped because it just got too much work to catch up with my reviews and my reading also slowed down.
I do have a couple of reading challenges that I will be taking part in, but am humming and hawing on a couple of others.  The ones that I have committed to are Book Riot's Read Harder Challenge and Litsy's A to Z challenge.

My aim is to read 50 books and about 20,000 pages.

Hope you have a wonderful New Year.
