52 Books in 2010 & 2011 Reading Goal

So….I didn’t make the goal of reading 52 books in a year… There, I said it! :-)

I finished the year with reading 48 books and I’m ok with that. I know, it’s a shocker! :-) I figured I did ok for my first year of setting a reading goal considering the facts that I started it in mid-February and that I had a difficult task of reading the entire Bible in 90 days this year. So yes, I’m giving myself a little pat on my shoulder and moving on!

I was reading a post on reading goals by Dawn from 5minutesforbooks.com and I was glad that I’m not the only one who didn’t make reading goals (he he he) and that  numbers are just that, numbers. However, I do love marking things off the list (lists, lists, lists, oh, how I would live without them!) and though I can get distracted sometimes by my checklists, I also do get encouraged and they push me to do better. So, I’m setting another reading goal for myself this year and the magic number is………..60!

    Obviously I didn’t really pay attention when I was reading the article as to who wrote it!! I apologize, Dawn!! At least I’ll pay more attention to the author in the future. :-)

    You inspired me with your article and I’m going to stick to 60 this year. I’d love to say “100 books this year” but I have remind myself that I’m a self-proclaimed “non-reader” and slow. *^^*

    Goals and lists are good things, but really, they’re just guidelines! :) I’m glad that what I wrote in the “On Reading” piece resonated with you– I’m still keeping my general idea of 100 for this year, but we’ll see how it goes. When I made that goal last year, I couldn’t have foreseen some of the crazy factors that this year brought. Who knows what this year will hold, but I do hope it involves a lot of fun reading. :)

    Thanks for reading us over at 5 Minutes for Books!
