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.
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. 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 (no shame!) 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
