1. Read all the books I own until there is 80 or none [deadline: January 1, 2015]
This is the last year in my challenge to read all the books I own.
2. Read more diversely
Last year my eyes opened to so many problems with my reading. I could not go back into ignorance because it was making me so angry. It is a matter of my reading happiness. I want to read books that are creative and not about the same old things. I want to read awesome books that include different race characters. I want so many things that I hope I can find this year.
3. Delve more into these genres: horror, adult fantasy, mystery, and just explore more genres
Among the many problems with my reading last year I know that I was focusing my reading on genres that were not for me. I need to read the genres that are consistently overlooked in my reading. The crazy thing is I feel that I kept going even though I kept repeatedly for years knowing that certain genres were not doing it for me. While I like ranting I do not want to spend this year ranting and wasting my time on books that are not for me.
I need to be on top of things
I need to be conscious of what I want as a reader. Last year, I spent a lot of time barking up the wrong tree and going around in circles. I need to be brutally honest and direct. I do not want to spend this year like I spent 2013.
5. Stop putting books on the hook or side.
Odds are you do not like x book now and will not like it in some magic future were that makes all its problems go away.
6. DNF even more books
I finished a lot of books that did not deserve a finish. This year I need to embrace dnfing because it is my best friend.
7. Plan more while not losing mood reading
I need to be scoping out books and planning themes more. I think creating themes will be fun while serving the purpose of helping me choose what I need to read.
8. Read more than one book this year from my favorite authors
9. Don’t pressure myself to read!
10. Support my other hobbies a lot more.
