the.book.chat. {2013 Reading Resolutions}

I'm not one for making resolutions, unless it comes to reading.  
Here are my reading goals for 2013...

 I'll get plenty chances to do this since I'm going back to school this year.  I guess the goal here would be to enjoy it.

 I love blogging about books.  I have no intention of quitting.

 I have no business buying new books with the collection of un-reads I have at home.

 I'm a repeat library patron.  I'd like to keep that up.

This is less a reading resolution and more a writing one.

I finished this year off at 33 so I didn't bump it up too much.  And when you consider I'm going back to school full-time and moving to another country this year, I think this is a hefty goal.

What are your reading goals for 2013?

I haven't really ever read any self help books, but my friend told me that Passionate Marriage is a really good one so I may check that out.

Good luck with all of your goals!! I would love to read your novel when you finish it!!!

Yes, PLEASE continue blogging about books! You kind of rock at it!

I too have no business buying books. A lot of the books I plan to read this year are already on my shelf! Oh, and I'm a new follower :) First time to book chat!

I really like your reading goals! I didn't know you were also going back to school full-time?! That definitely makes reading harder, but my mentality with it is this; when you set goals for yourself, you're constantly thinking of them and pushing yourself to get more done so you can achieve them. Even if you don't achieve them ALL, you'll definitely have done more than if you hadn't set them at all! So I think regardless of whether you've got a ton of goals or not, you're still going to do a great job :D

Oh and in terms of self-help books... The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin and Blink by Malcolm Gladwell. I've never been a huge non-fiction reader, but those two books converted me!

These are good goals! I'm trying to get through the books we have already instead of getting more off Paperback Swap....

Ashley @ ThisUnscriptedLife said...

Great goals! I also want to read more non fiction books. When you finish that novel I want to read it! =)

We have some of the same reading goals! I made a point of reading more nonfiction in 2012 and now it's something I read fairly regularly. I also want to use the library more and write a novel. My goal this year is 100 books. I read 90 in 2012 so it's doable. It'll be tough, but I really would like to hit that number! (Also, my life is boring so it leads to lots of time to read - ha!)

Wow, so many linkers this week! I love it! And I think you'll like #2 on my list. :)

Best of luck in your goals! I feel you on how it is to not buy new books.

Glad to have found a new book lovers blog. 2 of my 13 in '13 goals included books. I want to make my blogging more about me and part of that is blogging about books because I love reading. I'm going to try and start doing a monthly review of the books I read. I've always been nervous about writing book reviews for some reason, but it's time to get over that. I also set a goal to read 40 books with at least 10 being nonfiction and at least 5 being classics. I set a goal to read more nonfiction last year and I did pretty good so I want that to continue. I'm looking forward to following along!
