Daria Zeoli (dariazeoli) I thought it would be fun to read about everyone’s reading plans to start 2018!

Will you start reading a new book at the stroke of midnight? Do you mind starting a new year with a book in progress? What are your intentions for 2018?

I hope to finish my two current reads tomorrow, as I like to start the new year fresh! Up first will be Jane Eyre, which is going to fit for a couple of challenges and is also a buddy read! If I’m awake at midnight, I’ll start it right after I listen to Sinatra’s “New York, New York” play in Times Square after the ball drops (on tv, from bed!)

I won't be awake at midnight..LOL!!

I will most likely be reading tomorrow and hopefully finish my book.

Thanks for a great question.

Lynn K. I like to start the new year fresh with a certain goal in mind. I probably won't be up at midnight, but I will start reading in the morning while drinking coffee.

For 2018 my goal is to read all of the middle grade and YA books that I've been buying!

Kelly | 2 comments If I’m up at midnight it will only be the result of my neighbor shooting off fireworks... I will be reading while drinking my coffee though - likely around 6ish.

This will be my second year for setting reading goals. I did good on my 2017 goals except for buying only used books - that was an epic fail! LOL

My 2018 resolutions include reading at least 12 non-fiction books as I typically go to fiction first; reading at least one book from two genres I don’t typically read (can anyone recommend a sci-fi or a good business book?); reading three classics (should be pretty easy since I signed up for the Litsy AtoZ classics challenge); join my local Friends of the Library; and to read every day.

Happy reading!

Thanks for sharing, Kelly.

Linda Boyd (boydlinda95gmailcom) | 5 comments Normally I start the new year fresh, but 2017 was a hard reading year for me, so I’m finishing up a few books from 2017 that I pushed to the side.

My 2018 plan is to work on a few series that I haven’t read and to work on reading every day!

Sounds perfect!! Best of luck, and Happy New Year, Linda.

Melissa (irishcontessa) I'm a little late to the thread but....

I'm hoping to be better about reading books instead of fanfiction and online news this year and attempting to read more of the books I own.

I'm also trying to get into the routine of reading on my commute. It's a 40 minute bus ride and I tend to waste it on my phone rather than spend it reading. I'm hoping to make it a habit to change that and get in an extra hour plus of reading a day!
