2016 was the year of getting settled in New York and attempting to adult. Now that I know my uptown from downtown and my co-payments from my deductibles, it's time to go bigger and better!
As I mentioned in my 2016 Wrap up, this was my first year without assigned readings or classes to restrict my reading, so I basically I just read voraciously without rhyme or reason or planning apart from setting my Goodreads challenge to 50 books to make up for lost time.
This year I want to be more guided and thoughtful as to the goals and reading activities that I set for myself. This includes both personal reading challenges and bookish social media activities. This was the first year that I consistently used Goodreads to track what I was reading, and the ability to look back on my yearly reading record was super rewarding to a data-nerd like me. So I've come up with a couple of READ-solutions to guide my 2017 reading and they are:
52 Book Goodreads Challenge
Back to the Classics: 2017
Bookish Social Media/Community
Be consistent with blog and Instagram posts.
Attend 3 big literary events this year and blog about them
Get involved in a bookish volunteer opportunity
