Top Ten Tuesday: Reading Resolutions

Top Ten Tuesday

Welcome to another contribution to the wildly popular Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.  This week she asks us to share lists on the following:

January 16: Bookish Resolutions/Goals

I’ve long given up trying to direct my reading life.  I’m simply a mood reader and when I put rules or expectations on my reading I simply end up stressed.  Reading should be fun and too many rules or goals squashes my reading pleasure.  Still, for participation purposes, I will try to come up with ten resolutions for my reading in 2018.

Ten Bookish Resolutions for 2018

  1. YouTube:  For the love of God step away from YouTube.  It is nothing but a huge time suck and I waste far too much time watching mindless, yet entertaining, vlogs.  I also watch the news but outside of those two hours a day I need to seriously put a block on that site.
  2. Goodreads Goal:  I hope to read ten more books than last year.  So even though I set my Goodreads goal at 52 I hope to actually read something like 98 books in total.
  3. Audiobooks: I want to continue to listen to audiobooks this year.  I do want to change my focus as far as audiobooks go and use it as a way to reread titles I have already enjoyed.
  4. Star Trek:  I have a tough time passing up Star Trek books when I find them while thrifting.  I have quite the collection built up and they are beginning to creep onto other shelves on my to-read bookcase.
  5. Weed More:  I would like to weed some of the titles I don’t plan to read anymore on my to-read shelves (physical and virtual).  I would also love to get my husband into our home library to go through his collection of titles.
  6. Use the Library More:  I work at a public library and haven’t checked out that many books over the past year instead focusing on reading titles I have at home.  I should try to borrow more books from my public library.
  7. Read more Non-Fiction:  I do occasionally read titles that are NF but not that often.  Maybe I should use that library card to find some NF titles that interest me.
  8.  Catch up on Series:  I have so many series that I follow and have fallen behind with.  I need to either own up and abandon them or get my butt in gear and read the titles that are already released.
  9. New Authors:  I’ve not been seeking out new authors to try and should.  Maybe once I month I could try to read a book by someone I’ve not read before.
  10. Get new glasses:  I’ve been blaming my decline in reading on needing bifocals for about two years now.  I need to make a freaking eye appointment and just get a pair of reading glasses already.

There is my list for this week what reading goals or resolutions do you have for 2018?
