No public goals for me this next year. I've set goals both of the past two years and it's put too much pressure on me to just reach a number and not just read what I want. I do have a few books I read this next year and I'll just work on those, alone with the fun stuff.

Sure. I've a list of books I'd like to read in 2013. I'm just not stress if they don't get done. And public challenges do stess me.

My goal is to spend more time reading quality books and less time working as an unpaid copy-editor for big publishing. Every book I read this year from them had errors and then I had to go back and strip them and correct them afterward. I am over that! Unless it is a book I really and truly want to read and keep, I will be getting it from the library and deleting it as soon as I get to the third typo. So, my plan for 2013:

- Go through my existing backlog of purchased but not yet read books and separate off the ones which need fixing. Only read those all the way through if I run out of other stuff to read.

- Alternate the rest of my reading between indie books, classics, and other books from 'safe' sources who I know produce readable copy. I plan to explore the Harvard Classics as well and am working on a spreadsheet which sorts them all into chronological order.

Read this one for yourself:

Its only 30 pages which is good because youll want to read it again, and again.
That looks interesting, thank you for the suggestion.

It is also found here in our Patricia Clark Memorial Library > Mobi/PRC and ePub
