Do you have any new year's resolutions about reading? How's it going?

Post by Barbara Vertein »

I'm not big into resolutions, but I have a business book a I've been meaning to read for over a year. I guess that is the closest I have for 2021, and I haven't started it yet. Do you have any resolutions related to books or reading? How are they going?

I love reading for pleasure, but this year I also want to make time to read books focused on professional development. My goal is one professional development book per month. Hopefully, I'll hold myself more accountable for this goal because I posted it!

I had (notice the past tense there) two resolutions:

1. To empty most of my physical bookshelf to finally clear space and donate the books somewhere.
2. To read at least 24 books this year.

Because Return of the King is so far proving to be a heavy read for me and I'm too busy some days, both of those goals have not quite advanced. I've reduced the second one to be a 12 book goal instead and I'm hoping to meet that one still. More changes may yet happen. It's still not too late to advance well through those two goals.

Those are some very lofty goals! I have done the audiobook of Wheel of Time book 1 on road trips with a friend, but we've restarted it three times because we never quite finish it (he has read/listened to the series multiple times). I've read the first two Mistborn novels, but I never got to keep them from the library long enough in the right order to get through the original trilogy. I got them for Christmas last year, so maybe I'll add getting through at least two of them to my list this year!

I hope the Alloy of Law Sequel Trilogy will be good to read when I get to them this summer.

That and Wheel of Time Dragon Reborn which is book 3 I think along with whatever book 4 is called. I tend to wait to read big paperback novels for the summer time

How is it going? We're 1/3 through May already!

I have not started my book yet.
