2015 Reading Resolutions

I’m not always great about following through with standard New Years resolutions, but I am pretty good about meeting reading goals. This year I decided to take it a step further and make specific goals beyond just “read X number of books.”

So, here are my 10 Reading Resolutions for 2015:

  1. Cut back on buying books. Either check them out from the library or read books I own but haven’t already read.
  2. Join BookTube! (I actually wanted to join last year but I’m waiting for my husband to get a new laptop instead of buying a webcam and editing software.)
  3. Host a monthly book club.
  4. Read 100 books.
  5. Read In Search of Lost Time series.
  6. Read A Hundred Years of Solitude. This is my husband’s favorite book and I’ve been meaning to read it since he finished it a couple years ago and continues to rave about it. I’d like to attempt to read it in Spanish, but we’ll see how that goes.
  7. Read a poetry collection from an unknown to me poet.
  8. Read a biography.
  9. Read a Sci-Fi novel. (I’m leaning toward The Martian by Andy Weir.)
  10. Read 1 book each month from the Modern Library 100 Best Novels list:
    • Ulysses by James Joyce
    • Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov
    • The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck
    • To the Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf
    • On the Road by Jack Kerouac (this is actually a re-read, but I purchased The Original Scroll last year and still haven’t read it)
    • Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier
    • Beloved by Toni Morrison
    • The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
    • IT by Stephen King
    • The Sheltering Sky by Paul Bowles

Wish me luck!

  1. Good luck! I think reading goals are amazing! I have a reading goal on my bucket list, which is to read 100 books in a year! I am planning to do that this year! I have already read 2 books and moving swiftly onto the third! Maybe we could have a book reading race! (Sounds weird) but wr can make daily updates on blog on what book number were on! Just a suggestion to keep each other spurred on!
