My apologies for being late with this week’s Top Ten Tuesday, but I’ve been having a bit of a rubbish last week of the year… Still, like everyone else I am looking back on 2014 and forward to 2015 so I did not want to miss this week’s TTT.
2015 Bookish Resolutions
- Cull my bookshelves.
I have been clearing out my bookshelves in 2014, giving away books left and right that I felt certain I won’t be reading anywhere within the next ten years. I’ll continue to do that in 2015. I am a very organised person on the whole and will not let my bookshelves get out of hand!
- Read the books I own.
Despite regularly clearing out my bookshelves, they still house an embarrassing 279 unread books at this moment… *cough* In 2015, I want to read the books I actually own! Let’s see if I can make a dent into that tbr.
- Don’t buy as many new books.
This was actually going better and better this year. Lately I haven’t been feeling the need to buy so many new books. I do still want to allow myself to buy new releases that I actually want, and I’m giving myself some leeway for my go-to genres, but I’ll definitely be strict with myself (or so I say). I don’t want my bookshelf to cross that invisible border of 300 unread books!
- Finish series I’ve started.
Was going quite well this year, so I’ll try to keep that up.
- Read 52 books.
My goal for 2015 will be to read 52 books again. Like this year, last year, the year before that…
- Stick to challenges.
I haven’t made up my mind yet about which challenges I’ll join in 2015, but I want to stick to them more.
- Read whatever I want, when I want to.
That clashes a bit with the ‘stick to challenges’ one…
- Put down books I am not enjoying.
If a 100 pages in I still don’t like the book, I should just put it down. I didn’t create that life-is-too-short shelf for nothing!
- Keep on top of this blog.
I am not the most active blogger but I am really enjoying blogging this year and I’m so happy I met all these amazing people. I’m not going anywhere in 2015!
- Be more active socially.
In the book blogging world, that is. Comment more, interact more… 🙂
