2019 Reading Goals


As we enter a new year, I am excited and nervous about a new year.  There have been a lot of changes in my personal and professional life and they are affecting my reading life, so I am hoping that 2019 can become the year where things find a little more balance.

Looking at my reading challenges that I participated in last year, here are the reading challenges I have put as my goal for reading in 2019.

1.  I want to read a minimum of 219 books in 2019.  I surpassed my goal in 2018 and would love to do it again next year.

2.  I want to read at least 100 ebooks in 2019.  I hit it in 2018, so I am going to keep it the same for next year.

3.  I want to read more off my shelves of books that I own.  I have set this as a goal in years past and have yet to accomplish it.  I want to do a first on, last off shelf challenge, where I read at LEAST one book a month from my shelf in order of what went first on my goodreads books I own shelf.  These are books that I have had since at least 2010, so 9 years later I want to get them read and then send them on their way.  I am copying this exact goal from last year in hopes that just maybe I will do it this year!

And the challenge that I love to do (partly because it is easy) is:

Where Are You Reading?
In this challenge, I keep a Google Map (link to my google map for 2019) and place a pinpoint at each spot where a book takes place.  The link to my google map will also be in the sidebar all year round, so anyone can check out where I have been reading!

If you would like to participate - check out Book Journey.  She hosted this challenge in the past, not sure if she is hosting again, but as this is my favorite thing to do, I am continuing!
