Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the lovely ladies at Broke and Bookish.
The past couple of years I have been hesitant to make specific reading goals. I haven't wanted to be too confined by structure, rather wanting to have a more come what may attitude. Except I do like some structure and so can never stay away from it completely. In an effort to balance both these ideas, here are my ten reading goals for this year:
1. Read more of my already owned TBR books. It's embarrassing how many unread books I have sitting on my shelves.
2. Buy fewer books. Sorry, authors. I want to support you. But right now, I have way too many unread books on my shelves and in my e-readers to read. Let me read some of those first. Besides, supporting an author is more than just spending money on a book. It's reading and sharing about it too, right?
3. Read War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy.
4. Read the rest of the books on my Top Ten Books I Resolve to Read in 2013 list.
5. Read the books I received for Christmas in 2012. You would think this would go without saying, but I can't tell you how many books I have received as gifts for Christmas in past years that I have yet to read. Terrible, I know.
6. Complete the What's In A Name 6 Reading Challenge.
7. Read at least one book recommended to me by a friend (Go ahead. Recommend a book and I may choose to read your recommendation!).
9. Catch up with at least two series that I love but let fall behind.
10. Go easy on myself if I don't meet any of the above goals.
What are your reading goals for 2013?
