Bookish Resolutions

Well, it's a new year which means it's time to make some resolutions of the bookish variety.

1. Read 100 books by December 31. You can start your own 2014 reading challenge here on Goodreads!

2. A week ago I found these really cool printable calendars designed by nerdfighter, Karen Kavett. They're called Don't Break the Chain and at the top of each calendar there is space for you write what activity you want to track and how long you want to do that activity each day. The idea is that once you start tracking your chosen activity, you won't want to stop, or "break the chain." I'm using mine to track my reading and have made it my goal to read at least 30 minutes every day!

2. Participate in the 2014 Book Memories Challenge, created by Grown Up Fangirl.

3. Complete these Reading Bingo sheets:


I've printed them off to hang on my bookshelf so I can track my progress!

4. Read more of the classics. Ever since graduating from college, I haven't really pushed myself to read anything outside my comfort zone (YA and contemporary adult fiction). I have a shelf filled with nothing but classics, some of which I read in school and others that I've been meaning to read for a long time. Even though I'm sure I won't make it through all of them, I'm going to make it a priority to read Nicholas Nickleby and Tess of the d'Urbervilles, the ones which have been on my shelf the longest.

What are your bookish resolutions? :)


  1. Good luck! I'm just hoping to read more off my TBR pile, so less review books and less new books :D

    1. Thanks! And good luck to you, too! Keeping up with a TBR pile is not an easy thing to do. Mine's constantly growing because I have no self control when it comes to books!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment! I read every single one and they brighten my day. While I may not be able to respond to all comments, I do make an effort to visit your blogs if you include a link! :)
