Top Ten Tuesday: Bookish Goals for 2013

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly bookish list meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.


Last year, I made three bookish resolutions. And I succeeded in whole or in part on all three. This year, then, feeling good and ambitious, I have been tempted to over-reach a bit. To set resolution after resolution, goal after goal. To join this and that and that. But, after pondering my goals over this last week, I have decided to again attempt restraint. I give you my top five bookish resolutions.

1. Read 75 Books.
2. Get organized. My books are out of control, taking over my front room floor in ever more precarious stacks. My two-year-old is at risk of bodily harm. So, more shelves are in order, as is cataloging everything on LibraryThing.
3. Participate in at least two group reads/readalongs. I’m getting close to half way there on this one already! Suey from It’s All About Books and I are hosting a readalong of Wolf Hall. Look for our introduction posts tomorrow.
4. Read 10 selections from my Classics Club list.
5. Buy fewer books. I can’t outright ban myself from the purchase of books, because I would fail. But I’m going to do better. No book-hunting trips to thrift stores. More trips to the library.

What are your bookish goals for 2013?
