All right all, I’m pumped. I didn’t get to participate in the past book blog community events because of bad real life timing, but I looked at the schedule and I think 5/14-5/20 is no crazier a week than normal, which means lots of time for reading and blogging! Please come join me!
All right, so I know that I should post goals, but I’m not sure exactly what vein they are supposed to be in, so I’ll post what I can think of here and would love suggestions for more that I should include!
- Read at least 2 hours every day
- Listen to audiobooks whenever driving (I’m sure I’ll have work that week)
- Finish at least 2 books that week
- Get at least one book from the Goodreads to-read list from the library
- Spend at least 1 hour every day communicating with the community
- Find 4 new blogs to follow
That’s all I can think of right now, but I might add more later >.> Who else is participating? Any ideas for other good goals I should include?
We’re so glad you’re joining us for this week of decadent reading fun!
You’re goals are great, btw! I usually just set a hard book goal for myself and let the rest come as it may. You are making me reassess my strategy and I like that!

Haha, thanks! I’m nervous about setting a book goal since I am really bad at estimating how long a book is going to take me and don’t want to make it a stressful experience xD This way I can feel accomplished instead :D
Audiobooks are so helpful when you have to drive to work! Are there any specific books you want to read during the read-a-thon?
I know! They are the best, especially when they involve talking dogs and a narrator who gives them each really cute voices xD
I have some library books that I really need to get read before returning them! Beggars in Spain is going to be my go to book to read I think :)
Have you listened to the Iron Druid Chronicles by Kevin Hearne (narrated by Luke Daniels)? Amazing!
Oo I haven’t, but that sounds just up my alley! Thank you so much for the recommendation *goes to prowl the library database*
Those are some great goals! :) Meeting others is always one of my favourite parts
You do have great goals. I just made a list of books and intend to plow through it. LOL! Good luck and have fun!
Audiobooks are da bomb for driving! I second what Amanda said—IDC is a great audiobook series :)
I’m participating too. Good luck! :)
Thanks you too!!
Stopping in from the read-a-thon:) Good luck next week! Any idea what books you’re gonna read yet?
The Fiction Diaries
Just got a copy of Divergent and Beggars in Spain :D
Really realistic goals!! I like em =D
good luck for your goals :D
Great goals! I love the community aspect :)
Thanks :D Are you participating too? *high fives*
I love your goals. If it’s ok with you I might steal the ones about finding new blogs to follow and spending an hour a day communicating. :)
Go for it! Happy to be inspiration :D
audio books are a great way to get in extra reading, better than waiting for a stop light. :) good luck & have fun! ~dixie
Those are perfect goals!!! The best part of these events is finding new bloggers to <3. Good luck this week!
wonderful goals! I set myself with one hour per day, as long as I read hehe.
Good luck and have fun!
When She Reads
I love how you did your goals :) Good luck!!
Audiobooks are the easiest for me to get through ! I listen to them in the car or when I’m cleaning.
Yeah, the cleaning one is something I want to work on >.> I need to bust on an old cd player to do it though since my library audiobooks don’t let you rip them for some reason ;-)

How did your goals go for today? Good luck!
Here are my goals:
Pretty good actually! Need to get in another 1/2 hour of reading to have completed that, but I’d say it was still pretty good for the first day + a full day of work huh?
