A New Year and New Goals

Happy New Year!! At least, I hope it will be a good year. I'd hate to think that nothing but disappointment and tragedy awaited me. (Shakes Head) Don't mind me, I've just been watching way too much news today. Okay, I'm better now.

So...a new Year and new Goals. Do any of you make resolutions in January? Yeah, me neither. I am not a resolutions kind of a girl because more than likely I'd break them within the first week. My life is way too chaotic to make year-long resolutions. However, I do make goals for myself.

One of the first things I do as a New Year looms on the horizon is to set reading goals for myself. Yes, the world is falling apart all around me and I'm more concerned about how many books I'll read in a year. (See too much news--must wrestle remote control away from my dh.)

Do you set reading goals? It might be a good idea. Maybe twenty-five books in a year. That would be fabulous and totally do-able. My goal is always fifty books by December 31st. And I might add that this year (as crazy as it was) I read 101 books! That's a lifetime record for me.

I'd love to hear from you. How many books did you read this past year? Have a goal for this year? What's the magic number?

Next time I'll share some of the highlights of my reading year.
