With every new year I like to think back on my previous reading year and try to figure out what worked for me and what did not. Did I read all the books I wanted to read? Of course not, I never do. But how many of the books I read were ones I really wanted to read? Did I have a good reading year? Did I find a balance between fun and challenging? And perhaps the biggest question of all, how do I want the upcoming reading year to look?
As 2010 winds down and I start looking towards 2011, I am thinking about reading goals for the coming year. For me, reading goals are about more than just what books I want to read. No, what I'm really thinking about is how I want to spend my time. When I look back at 2010 I can see that I read less than I did the year before, and that I blogged about books even less. I sent a lot of books back to the library unread. I didn't lose my reading spark but it got dimmed. I need something that will help me find that spark again. Looking at the reading challenges out there and setting some goals can help me with that.
The beginning of a new year is a wonderful. It's bright, shiny and full of possibilities. So we dutifully fill it up with hopes and goals. There's just under seven weeks left in 2009 which makes it a good time to check in with your reading goals.
