Top Ten Tuesday #5: Top Ten Bookish Goals For 2013

Top Ten Bookish Goals For 2013

  1. Read at least 52 books — a book a week. I’ve been doing it the past two years, I don’t plan on stopping now.
  2. Read 12 books that have been on my shelf for over a year. I have over 500 books on my shelves, and I’ve probably only read half of those, if not even less.
  3. Read the Lord of the Rings. I still can’t believe I haven’t read these yet, but I will this year.
  4. Read the rest of A Song of Ice and Fire, by George R. R. Martin. On Monday I picked up A Clash of Kings again after having put it down last September at 300 pages (not that it was bad — it was amazing — but it was hard to focus during school, and unfortunately I needed a faster-paced book). I’m now over page 850, and should finish it tomorrow.
  5. Read more Sherlock Holmes. I’ve actually only read a few of his short stories, so I plan to read more, if not all, this year.
  6. Finally read a book by Stephen King. Another author that I surprisingly haven’t read anything by yet.
  7. Finally read Without Remorse, by Tom Clancy. And perhaps his other early Jack Ryan books, as I’ve only read Dead or Alive and later.
  8. Read at least two Science Fiction books from my shelves. I don’t read Sci-Fi much. In fact, I could probably count on one hand how many Sci-Fi books I’ve read. So I hope to read at least a couple this year.
  9. Finish collecting some book series that I am in the middle of collecting. I have a small obsession where I like to have every book in a series if I enjoyed the first book (or even if I haven’t read a book yet =P).
  10. Stop buying so many new series until I’ve read the ones I have. Because I can get so many books for so cheaply (both hardback and paperback for either $1 or $5), I’ll often go on book-buying sprees. While I love it, and I think there’s anything wrong with it, I do think I should hold off buying entire new series until I’ve read the ones I have. =P
