Musing Mondays: 4th January

Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about New Year reading.


With the New Year here already, do you have any reading resolutions or goals (challenges aside) for 2010? Perhaps a new author? Genre? Want to read more non-fiction? Write more reviews?

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Musing Mondays post, or share your opinion in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks.

Nb. check out the new MM buttons, and let me know what you think.



My number one reading resolution for 2010 is to review more – as much as I enjoy blogging, it’s usually my reviewing that gets hit first when things get crazy. This year I’m trying out a new system of reviewing which I’m hoping will help me out in this regard.
 
I’m going to be more organised with my reading challenges – this will be the year that I complete the A-Z challenge. I normally just have a general idea of what I need to read, and then fit them in where they fit, this year I’m going to have more specific books in mind.
 
And finally, I’m going to read more off my own shelves. This may involve some library avoiding, but that’s all part of the plan.

Making a dent in my book pile seems like a great idea.

My musing is up. :)

Kay said...

Love the new buttons - I think I will have to start rotating between them!

Here is my Musing Monday for this week. ♥

Vicki said...

I like them all, but I like the first one the most. I like that it symbolizes the question "what's in the book".

Here's My Musing

A little lazy getting my post in, but here it is: Monday Musings @ The Wobbly Bookstack

Oh, and I used the old button because I had it saved, but I do like the first one. :)

Alayne said...

No strict resolutions for me, but I should definitely make whiddling down my unread bookcase a much higher priority. I am seriously out of space for new books!
