Reading Resolutions

Happy second day of 2015. For some of you, it may be the third day already. Are you keeping up with your resolutions so far?

Of all things, reading is very easy to neglect. That’s probably why I wasn’t the avid reader I would’ve liked to have been in 2014. This year I’m working to change that by making and (hopefully) sticking to my reading resolutions.

Here are my reasonable and realistic reading resolutions. We’ll see in 2016 if I manage to achieve all three.

I don’t know why I don’t already do this, but I seriously need to start tracking the books I read. I’m using a tiny pocket notebook to do this. In it, I’m writing down the title of the book, the author, the date I started it, and the date I finish.

I aim to read something meaningful every day. Text messages don’t count. Emails don’t either.

I hope to read at least 22 books this year. In the past, I’ve read more. But 2015 is not like any other year. I’m blogging on multiple platforms, I am trying to write more, and I’m in my last year of high school. That said, I think I can still manage to read more than one book every two weeks.

These are my reading resolutions for this year. What are yours?

  1. I agree — Goodreads is a must! I used to track all my books in a notebook, too, but I’ve never gone back after Goodreads. Also, it allows you to set yearly reading challenges for yourself, and keeps track of your progress for you. You should definitely give it a go.

Speak your mind!
