Happy New Year 🎉
Starting a new year always feels exciting, doesn’t it? It feels like you get a fresh start.
Here are my reading goals for 2020:
- Read 100 books
This will be my fourth year setting this goal for myself!
- Borrow more books from the library
In 2019, I really ramped up how much I was using my local library and it’s been a pleasure to do so! I really want to continue doing it this year.
- Be pickier when it comes to requesting ARCs
In the beginning, I was requesting as many as I could because I was never sure if I’d get approved for them or not. But this led to me being very overwhelmed by the number of ARCs I had to give feedback for. Not this year! I’m only going to request the ones that I am absolutely dying to read.
- Read 50 percent of my books by POC, LGBTQIA, and female authors
I’ve set this goal for myself for quite a few years now. And I manage to hit it every time!
- Read at least 12 non-fiction books
This is another goal I continue to set for myself, but I think it’s important to always read outside of your comfort zone. And non-fiction can be really scary for me!
- Continue to use a spreadsheet and a bullet journal for tracking my reading
I’m good about tracking my reading through Goodreads, but I’d like to use other means too. I love staying organized especially when it has to do with reading!
- Read one play
I’m slowly making my way through Shakespeare’s work. But I’d also like to branch out to some other playwrights as well.
- Read five classics
At this beginning of last year, I combined a bunch of “100 Books to Read Before You Die” lists and have been slowly making my way through them. I’d like to read five books from this list!
