1.) My basic reading goal for the year is to read at least 150 books this coming year. After fiddling with my Goodreads record to figure out a more accurate count of my reading for 2011, I estimated that I read approximately 130 books this year. So I'm aiming just a little higher for 2012.
2.) I also plan to participate in the 2012 Debut Author Challenge (run by the lovely blogger Story Siren--more info HERE). I tried to join this challenge very late in the year in 2009 and managed to finish about 6 debut novels (half of the minimum challenge goal of 12 books). But since I am joining at the beginning of the year this time, I hope to meet (and maybe surpass) that minimum goal.
3.) Inspired by a goal on the amazing blogger and librarian Abby the Librarian's 2012 Reading Resolutions post, I want to read at least 20 non-YA books this year, including adult fiction and nonfiction.
4.) I aim to listen to more novels via audiobook format in 2012 as well, especially because my local DC public library system has a great selection.
5.) I (again) aim to update my blog at least once a week but I also aim to remain generally relaxed about blogging and not put too much pressure on myself if I get behind.
6.) I also hope to keep diversifying the content on the blog, adding more baking posts and more posts about library programming and other librarian-related topics in addition to my reviews.
What are your reading resolutions for 2012?
Happy New Year and Happy Reading!
