My 2024 Reading Resolutions
Writing resolutions: fun.
Following through with resolutions: not fun.
I’m not a huge New Year’s resolutions guy, but it struck me that making some 2024 reading resolutions might be a fun experiment. I’m going to try to make three that are easy to do, so I can actually follow through.
I’ll share mine, and I’d love to hear yours (leave them in the comments).
1. Keep better track of my reading.
This blog began as a place to keep track of what I was reading, but that’s changed over time. I don’t write formal reviews here much at all anymore, and that lack of noting specific books carried over to my Goodreads account as well – I hardly ever touch it. This year, I’d like to keep better track on Goodreads – even if it’s just to say I completed a book without assigning a star rating.
2. Read more middle grade.
My reading lately has been really focused on picture books and graphic novels. This year I’d like to read more middle grade. That won’t be difficult, since this past year I was severely lacking in that category.
3. More reading time.
The eternal struggle to make time for reading will continue in the new year. We all know the answer: less phone time = more reading time. Going to try for more airplane mode in 2024.
Do you have any 2024 reading resolutions?
