2013 Reading Goals

  1. I will not purchase any books from 1 January - 31 May.  No.  Not even one.
  2. I will only read books I own as of midnight 31 December 2012 until after 31 May 2013.  No.  Not even library books.  No.  Not even borrowed books.
  3. I will read at least five works of Canadian literature each month.
  4. I will read at least two work of classic literature each month.
  5. I will read at least five works of Japanese literature in 2013.
  6. I will read The Lord of the Rings trilogy.  Yes.  I.  will.
  7. I will keep a record of all the reading I do, and record my thoughts for each and every book read. 
I've joined a few online reading challenges which is something I've never done before.  Looking forward to diving right in! (links are below the logos - haven't learned how to hyper-link images yet).


  1. March 31st I can manage on the TBR Double Dog Dare = May 31st is hardcore! Good luck.

    1. Thanks! Initially I was deluded enough to think I could make it all year. Ha ha! Then I remembered my favourite bookshop near the cottage and revised my plan. There is NO way I'm making it through a whole summer without going in there. Three days in and so far the withdrawal symptoms are minor.

  2. Thanks for the blog visit!

    These are ambitious goals so congrats and I look forward to reading your thoughts on LOTR. I've got the Silmarillion sitting on my shelf and this year might just be the one where I tackle it.

    1. After about 10 years of reading by whim I feel very excited to get back to focusing on fiction and with specific goals. I look forward to reading your book thoughts. Happy Reading in 2013!
