Bookish Resolutions


For all those of you out there who have a huge TBR list you will understand my pain. I have a TBR list that I would probably need many lifetimes to complete but that does not stop me from adding to it on Goodreads and buying books , in every form , when I can. I have at least two large six foot bookcases that I have that contain books TBR . Those bookcases of unread books I do not find intimidating , they feel more like a challenge from a friend who is trying to get you to up your game. I occasionally feel the pull towards them and then a shiny new book will catch my eye or a library book will stand out in the stacks yelling at me to bring it home. 
For this year I intend to make a good dent in at least one of my bookcases and learn to let go of some of the books I know in my heart I am not going to read again. 
I want to read at least ten books from the majority of genres out there and take time with them and not rush them so I can remember how good it feels to luxuriate between the pages of a good book. 
This year I set my goal for Goodreads at 100 books. This is doable ... I get a great sense of satisfaction when I complete the challenge every year. 
Have you set a goodreads challenge for yourself this year, if so how many books are going to be your personal challenge this year?
Have a great evening guys xxxxxxxx

  1. This is kind of off topic but I am quite annoyed with Good Reads because I can publish my target reading goal for the year but there is nowhere that I can find on the site that explains how you can update how you are doing towards reaching your goal. If you know how to do this and are willing to explain, you could send the directions to me ddavison7@att.net
    If you have better things to do with your time, I understand.

    1. As far as I know Dora when you mark a book as currently reading then click complete when you are finished it automatically does it for you. :0)
