2019

 

My goal for 2019 is to read 100 books.

 

BOOK COUNT: 74/100

Breakdown

100 books include audiobooks, ARCS, library books, and my own copies. Of those,

  • 25 must be shopped from my own shelf (ARCS not included),
  • 10 must be from the 1001 book list,
  • 10 must be audiobooks,
  • 5 must be read in German
  • 15 must be for review through NetGalley or similar AND
  • 1 must be read out loud (children’s books not included).

I am also planning to read 12 books with my book club (one per month) and to maintain a written reading journal in which I note down thoughts and impressions as well as favorite quotes. Of course, I’ll be participating in various readathons throughout the year. I am “softly” participating in the Popsugar reading challenge meaning at the moment I am not fulfilling categories on purpose but will see if books I choose fit into one.

How many books do I have left in each category?

  • books I own: 5*
  • 1001 books: 5**
  • audiobooks: 1
  • books in German: 4
  • ARC reviews: 6
  • books read out loud: 1

*in my monthly blog posts, I will underline books I own AND ARCs (because technically I own them at that point) but in this tally, I am only counting the books I own and not the ARCs.

2018

Update: I completed my Goodreads reading goal, my ARC review goal, and my 1001 book list goal! I also finished the Popsugar reading challenge with 2 hours to spare on December 31st.

My official 2018 Goodreads reading goal is 75 100 books. My unofficial goal is to read 100 books, but I am keeping that a flexible number. I want this, of course, to be fun without pressure. I’ve also set a few other goals.

  1. I am again partaking in the Popsugar Reading Challenge – trying to fulfill 50 categories.
  2. I would like to review at least 15 ARCs this year.
  3. I MUST read 25 books I own.
  4. I am going to read 10 books from the 1001 Books To Read Before You Die list.

I am not certain, yet, how I will structure this page for 2018, but for now, I am going to keep a running tally.

Total Tally: 124/100

Popsugar Category Fulfilled: 50/50*

Reviewed ARCs: 24/15

Owned Books Read: 28/25**

1001 Book List Reads: 12/10

*includes library books, owned books, and ARCs
**in my monthly blog posts, I will underline books I own AND ARCs (because technically I own them at that point) but in this tally, I am only counting the books I own and not the ARCs.
