Here we are, a new year!! Though all that is happening in life doesn’t really change, it gives us a sense of being able to pause, evaluate and start fresh. Sometimes a reset is needed, sometimes reevaluating priorities is needed, sometimes a goal to aim for is needed.
I don’t really set New Year’s Resolutions anymore but one thing I do do is set a goal for how many books I want to read in the new year. Some years I pick out all the books from my bookshelf ahead of time as the books to read for that year, other years I set a goal and just read what I fancied. I recently shared my books of 2020 and you can find that post here. I moved it over to a post as this page was ready for a reset as the New Year came.
So here we are, new year, new book goals!! If there’s ever a goal I can stick with all year, it’s a book goal!! (Bookworm Alert!). Though I didn’t reach the goal I had set for 2020, I am still happy with what I read so I upped the ante this year. My book goal for 2021 is to read 36 books!! WOWZA!!! That’s a pretty big goal for me but I am banking on grad school to help me out a little bit. Hey, if I’m reading two to four books for just one class, you best believe it will count!
So here’s to another year of reading, and also, a year of growth!
