It is that time of the year where everyone is talking about how 2017 passed in the blink of an eye. I am personally excited for 2018 for reasons which I myself do not know. 2017 has been great and there were a lot of new things that I started – my blog, bookstagram account, waking up early and a new job are some of the things which were knew in my life in 2017. This is also the year I read 60 books (highest I’ve read in any other year of my life)
Do you reflect upon the past year this time of the year? I usually don’t but this year has been all about planning and making healthy lifestyle changes.
I love using Goodreads and they Year in Review is awesome. If you want to see all the books I read this year then click here.
Coming to 2018 I still plan to read 60 books, I don’t want to increase the number of books I read and make it more challenging because I liked the pace at which I was reading this year.
However, I want to make changes in terms of how I chose what to read. I’ve read more non-fiction this year and I’ve already spoken about how audio-books have been a game changer in my last post but I would like to continue and further improve on that along with 2 other goals. My 3goals for 2018 would be to,
- Read more non-fiction
- Read books by Indian authors
- Read more classics
I don’t plan on having anymore guidelines as I am a 100% mood reader. But in general I want to refrain from flooding my house with more books and focus on reading books that I already own. However, I still predict that there will be a fair amount of new releases #bookstagrammademebuy and other books that I might still hoard. So I won’t say I am on a book buying ban but I will say that I will buy way less compared to what I bought this year. We also have a library sale in March in Seattle where I might just buy a box.
I also plan to purge the books I already own and give it away to people who might enjoy it more and refresh my collection every 3 months.
Have you made any 2018 bookish/reading plans?
