I have a mix of reading goals for 2020, including:
  1. Finish reading all the books in my print TBR pile (for real this year as last year I forgot about a stash of unread books I'd already put on a shelf -- oops!)
  2. Read two “in-progress” series by new-to-me authors
  3. Pick 10 “Must Read” books for the year from my huge digital TBR mountain (not including any new releases)

January 2020
Read 19 books.

February 2020
Read 28 books.

March 2020
Read 35 books. (though was mostly rereads *sigh*)

April 2020
Read 20 books. (still mostly rereads, but that's okay!)

May 2020
Read 13 books.

June 2020
Read 16 books.

July 2020

August 2020

September 2020

October 2020

November 2020

December 2020

How about I just read and see how many I finish? Simple. I'm not doing a goal on Goodreads either. No buying unless some favorite authors have a book out or I want to continue a series. Random sales are a no-no.

Books read:

Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware
The Institute by Stephen King
Polaris Rising by Jesse Mihalik
Star Trek Picard: The Last Best Hope by Una McCormack
Green Mountain Road and Selected Stories by Leif Gregerson
Angel's Blood by Nalini Singh
Restless Hearts by B.J. Daniels
Star Trek: The Higher Frontier by Christopher L. Bennett
Force of Nature by Jane Harper
Aurora Blazing by Jesse Mihalik
Heartbreaker by B.J. Daniels

Place holder. Not sure I'll attempt this again, given how appallingly I failed this year, but hope springs eternal and all that.

My goal next year is to just read. I do not care how many books I read, just that I enjoy them.

Page Count, Genre, No-Buy Year

  • Read 50,000 pages
  • Read at least 10 non-fiction books
  • Don't buy any new books until I've read 100 books that I already own

I tried to mix the challenging with the not-too-incredibly-challenging. A more detailed breakdown of my challenges:


Read 50,000 pages
832/50,000

Spoiler:
Looking at my GoodReads history, I tend to read approximately 30,000 pages across ~80 or so books in a calendar year. I'd like to get up to 50,000, which I do expect to be quite challenging -- but all it really takes is stepping back from my video game addiction just a little bit, really!


Read at least 10 non-fiction books
1/10

Spoiler:
I don't expect this will be too difficult at all. I only really started to read non-fiction in 2019, but I quickly developed a love for both mountaineering and true crime books. Fortunately enough, my mother has a staggering collection of the latter, so I'll be spoiled for choice every time I visit her!


Don't buy any new books until I've read 100 books that I already own

Purchased: 0
Read, owned: 1/100

Spoiler:
This goal will absolutely take more than just one year, but let's try to keep me accountable for this year! I have a big problem with buying new books when I absolutely do not need them. I have well over a hundred paper books that I've yet to read, let alone the growing digital pile (which I'm frankly afraid to check the tally on). Kindle Unlimited and library books won't count towards this total, otherwise I'll cheat and breeze through 100 pulpy KU romance novellas. I know what I'm like!


Finally, a spoiler tag under which I'll list everything that I read:

Spoiler:
#. Title, Author (Genre) KU/B(orrowed)/O(wned)

1. Dark Imperium, Guy Haley (Sci-Fi) O
2. The Mystery of the Exploding Teeth and Other Curiosities from the History of Medicine, Thomas Morris (Non-Fic) B
