Booking Through Thursday: New Year's Resolutions

Happy New Year, everyone!
So … any Reading Resolutions? Say, specific books you plan to read? A plan to read more ____? Anything at all?
Name me at least ONE thing you’re looking forward to reading this year!

Well after completing my first reading challenge recently I'm gearing up to participate in three more! The 2009 YA Challenge, The 2009 Graphic Novel Challenge, and The 2009 ARC Reading Challenge. I limited the number of challenges I joined to genres that I was hoping to read more of this year (YA and Graphic Novels and ARCs which I've been reading all along) so they would help me along on those goals. I'm definitely going to try and finish these!!!

I love making lists so there is nothing more exciting than being able to check something off a list!

What are your reading goals for 2009?

    My reading goals at least till 2/09 is to finish 1 book. Happy New Year!

  2. I'm doing the 100+ Reading Challenge. So that should be fun (:

  3. Yeah, I am a list junkie too (must be the Virgo sign again).

    I am really looking forward to reading the new book by Marie Osmond coming out in April.

    As for challenges - I am taking up the Chick Lit challenge AND the YA challenge. Happy New Year.

  4. I hope to do at least one challenge this year. Still deciding which one(s).

    I am looking forward to reading If I Stay by Gayle Forman!!!

  5. My goal is just to keep reading! :-)

  6. I want to try to read like at least half as much as you do. I'm still in awe and drooling over your 2008 lists!

  7. My reading goal is to buy less and read what I already have. It's only the 1st and I'm planning a trip to the used bookstore so I'm obviously going to fail at that. See, this is why I don't make plans or set goals, I always mess up. It's like a weird disease. I make lists and plan plan plan just to not follow through. lol

  8. Agreed, Amee! I need to read what I have before buying ANY more...I could probably save $100s this year if I did that (but no promises). :)

    My other each night before going to sleep, find that it settles my mind better than if I watch tv before going to sleep.

    Happy '09!

    lol. I love making lists too. I get such glee out of both making the list and checking items off of the list.

  10. I want to read at least 2 graphic novels (Persepolis and Watchmen) this year!

  11. Good luck with your challenges and goals everyone!

    Taren- I didn't really get serious about constant reading til sometime in Feb/March when I found myself with all this time on the bus! I'm hoping to hit 100 this year (all the graphic novels will help for sure!)

    Yay for lists!
