Winter Break Book Blogger Challenge, Day 12: What are your New Year's Reading Resolutions
I really thought when I made my goal last year of 175 books and 10,000 pages that the "books read" goal would be the one that I met, because of picture books I read at school and books for Virginia Reader's Choice. I really didn't expect to meet the "pages read" goal, and honestly threw that one in just because I was so confident that I'd meet my "books read" goal. WAS I EVER WRONG! I blew that "pages read" goal out of the water and the "books read" goal, while close, wasn't met. At final count, I read 21, 497 pages and 161 books. Though I do know that reading all the Game of Thrones books really helped that pages total!
Because I don't plan on rereading GoT (ok, I might, who knows), I'm going to keep my pages read goal at 10,000 and lower my books read goal to 150. I know you should push yourself, but I want my goals to be realistic and not cause me to burn out. I know I'll have stuff going on and I won't want to read every night.
I'd also like to set a blogging goal of posting a review at least once a week. I like participating in the weekly thingies (like It's Monday!), or the blogger challenges (obviously), but those don't add "content" to my blog. They help you get to know me a little better. I'd also like to share more of what happens in my classroom. So once a week, expect a review and something that happened in my classroom.
