Happy New Year! I just have a few reading goals this year, but thought I’d post them anyway. I really like setting my goals for each new year, though I rarely seem to achieve them. I don’t put too much pressure on myself with goals, I like to create them for fun. Without further ado, here are my 2021 reading goals:
Read at least 50 books – I had thought about setting my reading goal this year at 100 books, but I decided to instead set it at the amount of unread books I own instead. I also don’t know what to expect this year and don’t know how much reading I will be doing.
Read all of my unread books – I currently own 50 unread books which consists of physical books, kindle, and audiobooks. I always go through phases where I decide to read all my unread books before I allow myself to borrow from the library, but I always fail. This year I am allowing myself to borrow from the library, but at the end of 2021 I am getting rid of any unread books that I didn’t get to. I am hoping this is incentive enough to get myself to actually pick up my unread books.
Don’t buy myself a single book – In 2020 I had a bit of a problem with buying kindle books, especially when I was home for about 2 months, which always leads to later regret. This year I am not allowing myself to buy a single book. This shouldn’t be too difficult because I’ve been good about not buying books for a few months now.
Read at least one book by Matt Haig – This is a bit of a random goal, but I’ve heard some good things about this author, and there are a couple of books of his that sound really interesting. My top picks are The Midnight Library and A Boy Called Christmas.
