I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year's Eve! I'm recovering from the wedding of one of my best friends last night!
I'm hoping 2012 will be a much better reading year for me! It's ironic that in 2011, I did about half of my total year's reading during the first four months of the year when I was finishing grad school and worked two jobs... then I graduated and downsized to one job but found that the job takes up way too much of my time. So I need to better prioritize my free time! I haven't made regular new year's resolutions, but I did make some for reading and blogging!
- Read 100 Books: This has been my goal for many years and I've yet to reach it. This year's total has been my worst in a while (62). We'll see how it goes. My husband is also making a goal of 50 for the year which is HUGE! He actually has read 40 so far this year which is his highest ever.
- Read More of What I Want: Hasn't this always been a goal since I've been blogging as well? I just want to be more conscious of reading what I want rather than only reading review books. January is always my very favorite reading month every year because I focus on reading mainly what I want... I want this to last throughout the year!
- Post at Least One Review a Week: I used to have a goal of three a week... how did I ever keep up?!?! I think one a week is realistic for me at this time. I've got some reviews to catch up on, but I have enough pending to do this for January and February. I just need to keep up the reading!!
- Keep Better Track of Review Books/ Maintain Communication with Publicists: I don't keep track of this in any way, and even when I do read a review book timely I rarely follow up with the publicist/author/etc. I want to focus on being more aware of this as well. Not that I'll necessarily be posting reviews any quicker (although that would be nice), but I can promise to be more aware.
