2021 Reading Goals and Plans

I usually wait until mid to late January before posting my reading plans or goals. Mainly because I'm very optimistic about my superhuman capabilities during the start of a new year but much of that enthusiasm fades over the next couple of weeks. I tend to believe I can read more than ever but reality is usually closer to how much I averaged in previous years. So, to allow myself the opportunity to dream big and then plan well, I take the ambitious goals for a road test during the first couple of weeks of the year. If they still look achievable, great! If not, I will part ways with those that are a stretch.  The numbers I have an arbitrary number set in Goodreads for this year but it's not a number I will quote as I tend to change it often and it is intended to factor in the many picture books I read with my kids. But that said, there are three numbers I would like to improve this year (last year's stats in parentheses) - total number of pages read (approx. 11k), average n

The Sunday Salon -- Jan 24, 2010

Phew!! I'm only just getting to blog and browse online. It's been so hectic, I'm glad today is over! Of course, half of my "hectic" day went into reading. *wink* But that's reasonable! Is what I would say!

I got some good reading done last week, having read Daddy-Long-Legs and Her Fearful Symmetry. I LOVED both!! Her Fearful Symmetry is not at all like The Time Traveler's Wife, but it was a good book in its own right. Daddy-Long-Legs was a wonderful classic! Thanks to Aarti for recommending it!

I was planning to write both reviews out by tonight, but somehow that doesn't look like it will happen.

The disappointing news this week was that the audio book copy of Say you're one of them that I was listening to, contained only the 3 short stories! :-( Luckily, I picked this book last week from the library, so that's real lucky. I was expecting it to be one of those 14-day books, but it's not!

I'm still reading The Hobbit, as part of the LOTR Readalong. I'm in no particular hurry to finish it as Bilbo's adventures are definitely very engrossing to read! Next on my plate are City of Bones (finally I'll be starting on the Mortal Instruments series) and the remaining two novellas of Say you're one of them.

I also wanted to mention this award I got today from J.Kaye @ J. Kaye's Book Blog. I'm guessing you are subscribed to her blog. If not, you should follow! She has an awesome blog out there, definitely worthy of the Your Blog is soooooo Kewl! award!!



I'm passing this on to a few really kewl blogs I came across lately!
  1. A Bookish Way of Life
  2. Hotchpot Cafe
  3. Tales of Whimsy...
  4. Tea Time with Marce
Back to school again tomorrow. ::groan:: I sure don't expect to get much reading done before the next Sunday Salon post. Probably just 1 more book, in addition to the two books that I am half-way through.

Read other Sunday Salon posts.
