At the start of the year it can be fun to set reading goals, or make reading resolutions. You might want to try and read a certain number of books over the course of the year, or to read books by more diverse authors, or from more of a particular genre. Maybe you'd like to read more non-fiction, more poetry, or more books by people of colour. Maybe you just want to make a dent in the pile of books you've meaning to get to.
If you have reading goals for 2019, please share them in the comments.
I usually try to read around 50 books a year. When I finally counted up properly the other day it turned out I hit 64 last year, which is surprising given that I started doing a Master's degree part time last year. A lot of that was probably down to procrastination, so maybe it's not so surprising after all.
I like to keep track of the books I've read so I can come back to authors I like, and remember which book in a series I'm up to. I include audio books and graphic novels.
Sometimes I try a reading challenge, like the Pop Sugar Reading Challenge. I've never actually managed to complete it, but it's fun.
