It’s a new month and a new start and a new chance to make some resolutions about What I Will Get Done, which I probably won’t get done. It’s always worth setting out some goals, though, because I never know when I’m going to be pigheaded and insist on following through. My main problems at the moment are overflowing shelves, a backlog of books I’ve started and not finished, a backlog of ARCs, and the fact that I’m butterfly minded somet
Joking aside, here we go. I read about a book a day usually, maybe more depending on my mood and how busy I am, so I’m going to give myself a goal of twenty-five books. Normally I’d probably pick specific books, but that tends to arouse my mood of rebellion more than anything else, so I’m going to go for five categories, instead. Why five? Because I like it, that’s why.
- Read five ARCs
- Read five books that were in progress before 31st October
- Read five books bought in 2o12
- Read five books bought in 2013
- Read five books from the library
- BONUS: Give away five books, either on Bookmooch or as some kind of contest on here
I can do that, right?

Hope for an update on December 1st!
Oh, and how do you remember which books you bought exactly when? (Other than the published date, of course!) I find I have books bought in the last year or so that in my head I thought were only in the last few months until I come to read them for review.
That’s the plan!
I keep a very detailed record, plus I have shelves on goodreads. My obsessive-compulsive tendencies serve me well in this!
I’d forgotten Goodreads! Since starting my own blog I’ve been on Goodreads and Library Thing rather less, so don’t use them to their full potential.
I’m still spending time on all three, but goodness knows how long that will last…
