Goals are always a good way to start the year. Sometimes they work out throughout the year and sometimes they do not. 2020 Was one of the years where they didn’t quite work out. Still I’m going to be doing more goals for 2021 again. Setting goals for my reading is fun.
Goodreads & The Story Graph Challenge
I am going to be using both Goodread and The Story Graph in 2021 and see how that goes. As much as I like The Story Graph, there are still things I like about Goodreads as well. So for now I’m trying for both. My goal for the amount of books is 120.
In previous years I put down 60 because of having Merijn but I’ve consistently beat that with bigger numbers so I figured I’d up the number for this year and see where I end up.
Yearly Reading Challenges
In this post I announced my attention to do some of the mentioned reading challenges. Since then I have also added my own Let Us Read Middle Grade and a reading challenge from a Dutch webshop. Obviously the goal of Let Us Read MG is to read middle grade and the other challenge has some prompts to fill in.
