I am known for setting some rather crazy and unachievable goals, but this for 2011 I have set some modest goals based on what I have accomplished in the last half of this year when I started taking reading seriously again since graduating from school. So without further ado I present you with my goals for 2011:
1. Get a bookshelf for all my books. This one is going to be fun to accomplish (with a little help from my dad) I will convert my closet into a large built in bookshelf. I don't use my closet anyway, I fold all my clothes. My books need a little home! They're scattered all over the house and under my bed (in pretty boxes, but under my bed nonetheless).
2. Read 200 books. This one won't be too difficult as I read fairly quickly and am only planning on working part-time. I usually take a day to a day and half to finish a book, so here's to hoping I actually have books on hand to devour!
3. Improve (or, actually obtain) review-writing skills. I am very new to writing reviews about books, before I started this blog I would just rave about them to a friend. I hope to give good honest reviews that are informative, well written, and not terribly boring :)
4. Learn. So this goal is encompasses all areas of my life. I will continue my college studies, I will continue to learn more about the blogging world, and I will continue to learn more about myself as a reader/citizen/blogger/friend/sister/daughter. This goal is ongoing from years past, so it's important to always include it in any list I make, and I encourage all my readers to do the same because:
