It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

Book Goals for 2010

Original Goals from August 30

Every month read/do the following
1. a non-fiction
2. young adult (12+)
3. children's book (12 & under)
4. one of mine that is dusty and unread
5. give one away

Review more books, quicker!

I've already joined several challenges for next year - I even started one! I need to be careful of how many more I join so I'm not so overwhelmed.

What are your book goals for next year.


edit 9-12

It's only September and already I need to modify these! I joined two more challenges so....

6. Read a book from a perpetual challenge. (There are four perpetual challenges so I must read, at least, three books from each list over the year.)


Blog Goals:

1. Visit more
2. Update personal blog
3. there has got to be a better way to do labels
4. figure out three columns without losing widgets
5. Update library blog

edit 11-22:

Jenny has come up with a great challenge, 2010 Reading Resolutions Challenge. "As the name implies, it's basically new year's resolutions for my reading. They can be anything you would like to accomplish in the coming year in the realm of reading, book blogging, or perhaps personal growth."


The Rules:

*Challenge runs from January 1, 2010 to December 31, 2010.

*Create your personal reading resolutions for the upcoming year in a post and link to it at the bottom. If you don't have a blog, that's cool too. Post your resolutions and updates in the comments of this post.

*Make sure to link back to this page so others can visit your pages and blogs.

*Get started on your resolutions! Once every 2 months, starting on February 15th, I'll have a post to check-in and see how everyone is doing. Kind of as a reminder to you to check your own progress.


I have a very long blog roll so that I remember to visit these places. I'm thinking I need to have a link/list of goals so that I don't forget what I want to accomplish in 2010. I also need a list of review books so the pdfs don't get "lost" since they aren't on my shelf.

This is very frustrating. I've never had to make reading/book goals before, I've always just read what I felt like without thinking about reviews, memes or challenges.

First step: list all challenges
2nd: list books for challenges
3rd: is there any rhyme or reason to the list?
4th: divide them up through the year
5th: add in books sent for review

These sound like good goals for all of us. For me it's like a New Year's resoultion: i'm good in January and then things fall apart LOL

Gina! Welcome to my challenge sweetie! Ah yes, having reading goals or to-do lists can be a bit frustrating. There's nothing I like more than going to the library and just picking out random books, but then I never make my reading challenges or my personal books.

I think the happiness is in the planning. One "must" read then one "random" read. That might work.
Good luck and I look forward to seeing how you do :)
