Janni_B I love reading but there is no point in putting pressure on myself to read more books than last year. I set my goal for 2017 at 30 and read more than that. I'm doing the same for 2018 so 30 it is and I expect I'll read more.

As a member of NetGalley I get to read all sorts of wonderful books but there are some in my kindle app that I have actually bought during 2017 but have never read so I think my challenge will be to read at least some of them.

I think one of my goals should be to organise my time better. I don't want to spend all my time reading (much as I love getting lost in a book). I think I should DO more this year - drawing, painting, stitching. Can I fit it all in? Hmmm .... we'll see.

Reading 30 books is very 'do-able'.

The other goal..... well I'll just have to try. It hasn't worked before and I don't have the excuse of having to work. I'm retired!

Sounds good Janni! Wishing you the best of luck with your goal & a very happy reading/New Year!!

I'm so glad you mention this. It has been quite a dilemma for me, because on the one hand I want to read more but on the other hand there are other things I would like to pick up again like sports, photography, dancing etc etc., next to a very busy full time job. I just don't know how to combine both wishes/goals....

Lisa Grønsund (gullita) | 3273 comments I totally get where you're coming from Janni! This year my main goal is just to read whenever I feel like it, because I feel like it. If I read more than last year - great!, if not - that's fine too.

Netgalley is definitely both my best friend and worst enemy when it comes to my reading, simply because I could just peruse those pages for eternities!

30 books is certainly a sound goal for 2018! I wish you the best of luck and look forward to seeing what you'll be reading throughout the book :) Good luck!
