 Booking Through Thursday

Any reading resolutions for the new year? Reading more? (Reading less?) Reading better books? Bigger books? More series? More relaxing books?

And hey, feel free to talk about any other resolutions you might have, too … or why you choose NOT to have any.

My reading resolutions for 2013 are to accept very few books for review/tour. It has to sound like a really really good book, one that I just can’t pass on, or I’m going to pass on it. I’ll be concentrating on all those books that I’ve had for a while (or years in some cases) that I haven’t gotten around to reading yet. I’m also going to work really hard at completing the challenge I’ve joined for 2013. I normally don’t do very good on them, but will be using each book I read for as many of the challenges I can.

As far as other resolutions, this WILL BE the year I get healthier:
1. Post weekly to Readers’ Workout to help keep me accountable
2. Drink 84 oz. of water a day
3. Get at least 30 min. of exercise a day
4. Eat meatless at least twice a week
5. Do deep breathing exercises daily
6. Strength train at least 3 times a week

  1. My resolutions are similar – I’m really hoping to read more of those books I’ve had for years and have never read.

    Your other resolutions are good too – I’ll be joining you in some of them.

  2. My answer is a lot like yours. I am going to try to read the books I’ve had on my bookshelves for a few years, and I am not accepting any new books this year, unless they are in the genres I read.

  3. I’ve been trying to cut back on review books for a while now and haven’t done too well. Good luck to you!!

  4. I joined a couple of challenges as well. First timer and I hope to get through them. Good luck with your resolutions!

  5. I see many similarities between our lists. Great choices! Let’s hope we achieve our goals!


  6. My answer is very similar to yours. Scheduled reviews/tours stress me and I find that I like those books less because I’m forced to read them by a specific date. (My personal, healthier goals are similar to yours too!)

  7. As I travel around the blogs today, I see most of us are feeling this way about our reading. We all want to be more relaxed this year. Good luck to you!

  8. I am with you with not accepting as many review copies.

  9. I agree with cutting back on the review copies. I did that last year and it made a world of difference. Less stress!!
