A new year, a new batch of chitchat - let us know, what's on your mind in 2018?

My reading-related resolutions for 2018:

01 - Beat last year's score of 479 books read
02 - Make it into the top 100 of top reviewers (global) on GR (current spot: #102)
03 - Knock down my own-to-read shelf to less than 850 books by the end of the year (currently 918)

What are your book-related resolutions for the new year?


message 3: by Sarah (new)

Sarah Sheesh Denise that’s a hard act to follow! I felt accomplished when I read a hundred books this year.

My goals are:

Firstly, and most importantly, I want to read more diversely. More women, more ethnicities, more LGBT+ authors, etc.

Be pickier about what I read. I read far too many 3 star books this year.

Read less YA. This goes hand in hand with #2, but I really don’t like most YA, though there are a few gems. I have to learn to ignore the hype.

Book Concierge (tessabookconcierge) | 2348 comments Well .. we obviously haven't had much to "chat" about this year!

Anyway ... I'm on the road with intermittent internet access for the month of December. So, I'm limiting myself to only two monthly challenges - Cities of the World and Book It to the Finish Line. Let's see if I can remember to update before the month ends.

We'll be back home right around New Year's Eve and I'll be back in the swing of challenges in the new year.

Happy holidays, everyone!

It doesn't seem like we are a chatty group outside of group challenges. I'm thinking about starting up a discussion thread where I would ask open-ended questions about books.

That one looks like a fun challenge, Alejandro, so I hope it helps you break out of your reading slump!
