My 2015 reading resolution

1511205_10152999590427009_1502397065346438587_nFor the past few years, I’ve made a reading resolution around the amount of books I want to read in a year.

In 2011, it was 52 (or one a week). I didn’t make it to 52.

In 2012, I don’t think I chose a number, though I ended up reading around 45 books and did a recap post.

In 2013, my BSC Bloggin’ project kicked into high gear so I set 100 as a goal. I ended up reading 63.

Last year, my goal was 75. I made it to 66. (See my full list of the books I read this past year below.

This year, I want to do something different. I saw the photo on the left on Facebook last week, and thought it was an amazing idea.

Instead of focusing on a number of books to read, I’m going to make my goal to complete this list. So while the number of books I plan to read this year will be smaller than ever before , it will be a list full of meaning.

(UPDATE after editing this post: I just counted the amount of books on this list, and there’s actually 52 books on it. Wowzas.)

I also want to begin blogging more regularly, so will endeavour to post reviews about each of the books I read in the categories above.

I’m excited to begin the challenge!

You can follow my process throughout 2015 and suggest books I should be reading by following me over on Goodreads.
