Top Ten Tuesday is a meme run by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week, there is a new topic and you make a list based on that topic. This week's topic is the "Top Ten Bookish Goals for 2013". I actually did a similar post (though less detailed) on Sunday, so you can check that out too if you want. Let's get started!
1. Read 50 books in 2013.
I've done this the last couple years, except last year I tried to read 75 and failed. I feel like 50 is a good target number.
2. Blog more consistently.
As you might of noticed, I only really make time for blogging during breaks in my semester. I feel like I can work on this if I schedule more posts.
3. Review More
I read a lot, but I don't review a lot. Either because I have nothing to say or by the time I sit down to review the book, I've forgotten what I wanted to say.
4. Interact with my subscribers more
I really want to get to know all of you better, so I'm looking for ways to work on that.
5. Post more than Top Ten Tuesdays and Reviews
I have a couple book-related posts in the works, and I think they could be interesting.
6. Read more variety.
This past December, I fell into a reading slump because I was tired of reading what I thought was less-than-great YA and didn't know how to make the change. I would love to read more adult literary fiction and expand my reading horizons.
7. Attend a bookish event
I'm not quite sure how this would go about because nothing really comes to KC and I really can't afford to go anywhere most of the time. But this is something I would really like to do.
8. Read more books I own.
I have a serious problem with reading books I own as opposed to books I have checked out from the library probably because I feel the time crunch that can be associated with library books whereas I have all the time in the world to read books I own.
9. Participate in a readathon.
I would love to participate in a readathon, but they always just randomly appear and I don't have time to participate. So I shall make the time.
10. Buy more books.
I love libraries; they are where I get most of the books I read and I am never going to stop supporting them. That being said, I would like to build my own personal collection of books. But first, I need to invest in a new book shelf.
Those are my bookish goals for 2013. As you can see, I have a lot of work to do. Do share any of these goals with me? What are your goals for 2013?
