My Summer Reading Goals
Posted June 12, 2009on:
School’s out and summer’s in which means that my reading time is tripled and the books I read tend to change. in the past, I have used summer to reread series and catch up on random books that I wouldn’t read during the school year. I have a few goals for this summer, which I thought I’d share.
1.) Read all of the review books that I have right now. – This includes all books sent to me by authors/publishers that I’ve received prior to posting this (I’ll be making a list). I think this includes about 20-30 books, some of which don’t come out until next year.
2.) Get the final books I need to complete my Heartland series and read the whole series through (for some of them, this will be the 3rd time I’ve read them).
3.) Read 1/2 of the other books I have. This includes all books on my shelf that were NOT sent to me by publishers/authors. I have quite a few and since I have so many review books, I haven’t had a chance to read that many.
4.)Read the books at the library I’ve been looking at. I go to the library a couple of times a week and though they don’t have very many books, there are some I would really like to read. I plan on getting to these soon.
5.)Get a head-start on all books I receive this summer. Chances are I’ll receive more books as summer continues and I’d like to get a good chunk of them finished before school starts.
6.) Buy those books I keep looking at. I have a HUGE Amazon wishlist and I hope that I get to purchase some of those books this summer, like books 2+ in the Canterwood Crest series, Prada and Prejudice, and some others. I also want to support the authors I love by buying their books, even if I have an ARC. (Willow is a good example of this.)
Those are my summer reading goals. What are yours?
