This year I'm going to join a few challenges that line up with my personal reading resolutions.
I joined the Goodreads challenge again this year. I realize that I read 152% of my goal last year, but I'm going to keep my goal at 50 again this year. My intent isn't to read more and more each year, it's to remain an active reader.
Evie from Bookish is hosting a TBR pile challenge. This is a challenge I need. I own so many books I haven't read yet. A lot of them were purchased as "must reads", too. I know this challenge will be even tougher for me now that I am blogging and seeing new books every day that I want to read.
The truth is - I suck at challenges. Midnyte Reader's Dusty Volumes challenge did actually help me last year, though. I try to mix in the classics each year, and last year I had to challenge myself. I didn't read all the ones I had planned since I reread The Lord of the Rings instead, but it did keep me on task for Frankenstein at least.
I haven't decided which Dusty Volumes I will read yet. Last year I meant to read A Stir of Echoes and I Capture the Castle. Maybe I'll get to those. I do plan to reread To Kill a Mockingbird again this year.
How about you? Do you set reading resolutions for yourself each year?
