At the end of December, I wrote about my yearly goals in my Evaluating My 2022 Goals post. At the time, I settled on six goals and one challenge-related goal. However, I’ve decided to make some changes. My NEW goals for 2023 are:
- Read at least 24 books.
- Read at least 50% of my IRL book club books.
- Read at least 75% of my 2023 Book of the Month book choices.
- Read at least 50% of the Book of the Month choices I didn’t get to last year.
I got rid of two goals and my challenge-related goal. All three of those goals were tied to the Play Book Tag Goodreads group I was a part of. While I enjoyed reading a book based on a specific topic each month, my reading tastes were so different from the main contributors that I wasn’t enjoying my experience. I finally decided to leave and focus my reading elsewhere.
A few people from my IRL book club are participating in the Pioneer Book Reading Challenge (hosted by a local independent bookstore) and the POP Sugar Reading Challenge this year. I was considering joining them, but I really don’t feel like doing the Pioneer Book Challenge and I’m still on the fence about the PS Challenge. I’ll probably participate in the PS Challenge because I can always change my mind later if I’m not enjoying the books I’m reading.
Anyway, I’ll keep track of my reading progress on my 2023 Reads page if you’re interested in seeing what I’ve put together.
How about you? Do you ever adjust your goals, reading or otherwise, during the year?
