Resolutions I Have For 2016 – Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely ladies at The Broke and The Bookish. Each week, a topic is selected and shared/discussed by book bloggers. This week’s topic is: Top Ten Resolutions I Have for 2016–bookish or otherwise. Or maybe both.


Here are my Top Ten Resolutions for 2016! Do we share any similar resolutions?

  1. Read more of the books I own. This one shouldn’t be a surprise, but it’s still nice to state again. I’m trying to convince myself it’s possible.
  2. Catalog my books more reasonably. There has to be a better way. I’ll figure it out once I’ve read them all.
  3. Donate books I don’t need. Because others can benefit from titles I won’t read or don’t want. Seems self-serving, but everyone has their own opinions.
  4. Finish reading the Pretty Little Liars series. It will happen… right, Sara Shepard?!
  5. Reread the Harry Potter series in full. Because having not read The Sorcerer’s Stone since 1999 would be more embarrassing if I liked that installment (have I given my age away yet?). Don’t worry, I’ve read most all other books in the series more than once.
  6. Read more memoirs. People and memories are fascinating.
  7. Read at least 25 books. Harry Potter and PLL could be half of the 25, so it IS possible!
  8. Blog more regularly. High hopes on this one.
  9. De-clutter. Life’s too short to be surrounded by stuff.
  10. E x e r c i s e more. A sometimes elusive task.

    Reading more of the books I (we) own seems to be a popular goal this year — it’s certainly on my list! I’ve been trying to organize more and get rid of the books I’ll never end up reading or just don’t feel strongly enough about to keep. I usually donate to our public library — they do a huge used book sale every year, and the money goes to supporting the libraries, so I can clean up and feel good about it. :) Good luck with all your goals this year!

      Thank you! Good luck with yours as well! I’m glad I’m not the only one who also feels the need to be realistic about which books to keep and which to donate. If I don’t love it or don’t plan on reading it again, why keep it?
