Winter Break Book Blogger Challenge, Day 12: What are your New Year's Reading Resolutions

Happy New Year!  I hope those of you who stayed up, stayed safe, and those of you who fell asleep had a good night's sleep.

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.

  1. Wow! You did phenomenal with your goal from last year. The GoT books are quite the chunkers, but I've heard nothing but amazing things. :o)
