Some people like to set resolutions about what what they're going to read in the coming year. You might set a goal of how many books you plan to read, or resolve to read more nonfiction, or more books by female authors. Perhaps you just resolve not to buy any more books until you get through your giant To Be Read pile.

What's your reading resolution?

I never set goals. I just go by reviews I read and then look for them in the local library. Believe it or not, Answer Angels is stealing a lot of my reading time.
I did this year. I used the Reading Challenge feature on Goodreads to keep track. My plan was to read 30 books this year, but I think I'm going to fall just short of my goal. Oh well, this is the first time I've tried setting an amount for the year, and I'll be happy to do it again in 2014.
I used to set a goal for myself that I had to read a book within three days of starting, but I don't do that any more, because it took the enjoyment out of reading.
I used to try and read at least 52 books per year (about one a week). I have two small children at the moment so I don't get through that many (I think this year I'll hit about 30).
None. I just read whatever is interesting to me at the time.
At the moment, have from local Library, to read........

'Working Stiff' by Dr Judy Melinek.
'Why Did They Do It' by Cheryl Critchley & Dr Helen McGrath.
'The Sixth Extinction' by Elizabeth Kolbert.
'Unsolved Australia' by Justine Ford.

Think those wil keep me going for a few weeks!
P.S. Picked-up from Library today......"Oxley-Gatton Murders" by Neil Raymond Bradford.
His thought is that the murderer of young boy at Oxley, & subsequently, of the three Murphy siblings, was one & same person.
That person was 'let go' by the inefficient, & self-serving Insp Urquhart.
