Which books did you read in 2015?

Which books did you read in 2015?
I set a Goodreads goal for myself to read thirty books in 2015. I started off the year strong, getting through about a book a week. I thought I’d hit forty to fifty. I slowed my pace over the past half-year or so and ended up reading (and finishing) thirty-six books. Looking at that number,... Read more »

What should I read next? I have the answer.

What should I read next? I have the answer.
I have a massive to-be-read list. I think I’ve mentioned this before. I keep a list in the reminders on my computer/phone and I just keep adding to it. For every book I finish, I’ve probably added three more. And I always tend to read the most recently added books. Because shiny! New! I also... Read more »

What's on your reading list?

What's on your reading list?
I was listening to The Readers podcast yesterday and the topic was to-be-read piles.

LitzyDitz did a roundup of all the books she read in 2014, so I decided to copy her and do the same thing. These are all the books that I marked as “read” on Goodreads in 2014, meaning I know I read more, but got lazy in my record keeping. All but one of these... Read more »

Which Books Are on Your "Did Not Finish" List?

Which Books Are on Your "Did Not Finish" List?
A literary agent mentioned on Twitter yesterday that she stopped reading a book because she just didn’t love it. “Just didn’t love it” seems like a pretty broad category. If I stopped reading a book because I just didn’t love it, I’d never finish anything, because I’m a bitter old crone who is incapable of... Read more »

Make SMART Goals and Achieve Your New Year's Resolutions

2012 was the first time that I made official, written-down New Year’s resolutions, and it was the first year that I actually kept those resolutions.
