My Book Related New Years Resolutions 2016


So it’s a new year and a new you. Have you hit the gym yet? I have worked in gyms and at this time of year I avoid them at all costs. So I have decided to actually do some resolutions this year, but of course they are about books. I should have written this post a few days about but I had to think about what I really want to change this year when it comes to my reading and my books.

So here they are my 2016 resolutions: 

  1. Read more Books. This is such an easy one to do. I read the most books I think I have ever read last year. I managed 45, and my goal was 20. So I am going to stretch it a little further for this year. 50 books in 2016. As long as I spend all of my free time reading I don’t think this is to far of a stretch.
  2. Stop Reading the book if I don’t like it. This one is hard for me. I have a very hard time putting something down because I always think “it will get better”, “I am half way through I’ll just finish” and on and on and on. This must change, waste of time if I don’t like it.
  3. Recommend Books I Don’t Like. Just because I don’t like it doesn’t mean someone else won’t. There are so many books I was not a fan of but people love, don’t get it but to each their own. So expand my recommendations to people. What is my trash may be someone’ treasure.
  4. Get rid of some books. It get’s to a point where I will have no more room and be a legitimate hoarder if I don’t get rid of some. If my husband won’t read them or if I will not read them ever again I should pass them on. Make room for more books?
  5. Expand my reading even further. I don’t read a lot of business, self-help or western books. Among other ones, but I can’t list them all. I need to read these too, expand my mind and you never know I might actually love them?SONY DSC

These are some great starts and resolutions I think. As I sit here and pat my back because of how good they are, I have to start to do them and put them in to practice. I have heard it takes three times to make things a habit. So today is the day…better late than never. Let’s see how I do this year and maybe I’ll write a follow-up blog post at the end of the year to see how I did. Wish me luck and Happy New Year everyone.
