January is a time of New Year's Resolutions and big plans. This challenge is inspired by those ideas.

description

How many "resolutions" can you accomplish? :)
1-3 Easy
4-6 Medium
7-9 Hard
10 - Wow!

1 Lose Weight - if only it were this easy! For this resolution, read a "skinny" book - under 150 pages.

2 Getting Organized - Read the oldest or newest book on your tbr.

3 Spend Less, Save More - Read a book borrowed from the library or a friend, or one received as a gift in this recent holiday season.

4 Enjoy Life to the Fullest - Read a book that is Just For Fun.

5 Staying Fit and Healthy - Read a book with a "health", "self-help", "cookbook" or similar genre tag. "Humor" is acceptable as well, since laughter is the best medicine.

6 Learn Something Exciting - Read a nonfiction book on a topic that you find interesting.

7 Quit Smoking - Read a book with a dragon. Yeah, you heard me. A dragon. Smoking is dangerous. :P You can also read a book with a "fiery" title - with words like "burn" or "fire".

8 Help Others in Their Dreams - Read a new publication from an indie author. And write a review!

9 Fall in Love - Read a love story or a book that features a couple in love. :)

10 Spend More Time with Family - Read a book that you can discuss with family or friends (or take part in a buddy read that you can share with your Goodreads 'family')

Feel free to plan, but don't start reading until January 01. Have fun!
