With January fast approaching, here is the place to post any goals you're setting for your reading in the new year. Hopefully we can encourage each other to stay motivated.


Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) | 9906 comments My goals are to read about 300 pages a day. I don't know if that is realistic or not.

I do also want to finish more series and to buy more e-book/kindle rather than paperback/hardcover.

Oh and I also want to listen to more audiobooks. I need to figure out how to do that while walking Ruby.

Ugh, I really (like REALLY) need to get back into Physicals.

The book world is making that hard. lol. It's so much easier to listen to audios while doing stuff or reading an ebook as you can have 1000's at your fingertips. :)

Yup, I brought like 3 physicals to my dads today but who knows if I will even get to them. Now that I'm off of work I feel like I should be cleaning and listening to audios lol but I also need to catch up on reviews.

IKR? I tend to take like 5 books if I'm away from the house for more than 3 hours. I like variety. Of course, I'll also take my kindle and kobo too. :P

Lol well I have the kindle app on my phone so that's with my constantly. Plus the audible, overdrive, and hoopla app. Endless opportunities to listen or read a book.


Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) | 9906 comments I hate reading on my ipod. Screens to small. But I do like the audible app. ^_^

I don't think I have ever read on an iPod before. iPad yes but I always forget I have one of those because I'm so used to my phone or laptop.

oo that's a nice goal! I feel like I wont really have a reading goal next year. Yes, I would like to read more physicals than anything because I've definitely slacked on that but since I didn't expect I would be getting so many work projects this year - my reading has definitely changed. So I think less pressure on myself (reading challenge wise) might be better for 2020.

Will definitely still be reading but I don't want it to be all about the number. More about the enjoyment of the actual books.

1,000 books again. No idea if I'm going to be given more projects this year. We are already moving to another building next weekend so hmm.. no idea.

Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) | 9906 comments Awesome. That's a good goal and reasonable. ^_^

I think I'm behind but that's because I haven't really read that much. Just 5 books lol but it's all good I'm more focused on finishing the sign ups and SS's for the next two monthly challenges. Might listen to an audio while doing laundry today.. who knows!

I love that to you 5 books on day 4 is behind and 2 books on day 4 is ahead for me. lol. Goodreads is a bit of a mind f*ck that way. 😂

I'm also getting back into audio! Woohoo! Still only HP but at least I'm getting back into it!

Oh, my goal of 1,000 isn't looking too good right now. Might need to just wear a blindfold from now on. Maybe I'll catch up, maybe I wont. Who knows?

BUT 1 book a day is still amazing and a great goal. Sometimes I don't even get to read a page and it makes me sad but life gets in the way. Especially work life.

Kelly | 3824 comments Two months left and 2021 will be upon us! How is everyone doing with their challenges?
