READ 45 BOOKS || I barely hit this goal (43 instead of 45) in 2019 for a number of reasons, but just like my goal in 2019 I want to focus on quality over quantity, and I’m very pleased with my reading year in 2019. It is my hope to do the same for 2020!
READ 15 LIBRARY BOOKS || This shouldn’t be hard, considering I’ve read so much from the library already and I definitely plan to read more again this year too! It goes hand-in-hand with my next goal…
BARGAIN BUY || In an effort to make better purchasing decisions on a slim budget, I will focus my efforts to reading library books and making bargain purchases––coupons, XY% off, second-hand, etc––and only buy brand new, full price items for hot ticket, highly coveted, would’ve-dropped-money-no-matter-what books I’ve been excited for and waiting on for ages. This isn’t just nice for the wallet, but also for my buckling bookcases, which leads to…
READ MORE FROM TBR || …reading from those buckling bookcases! I threw my money at all of these books I’m still very excited to read, so perhaps I should read them.
READ MORE GABALDON / MARILLIER || You guys, I have all of their books. I need to read them. And get back into the binge-reading style I so loved before blogging!
READ MORE GENRE FICTION || OOOOOOWEEEEE I love fantasy and historical! Last year my goal was to get into more mysteries, and I did via the historical fiction route. I think I’ll continue doing that, and also add some more sweeping epic fantasies on my list too. Many of them I already own. So again…these goals go hand-in-hand quite nicely!
What are your reading goals for 2020?

This is a great goal, Laura! I have similar goals of better purchase and read more backlist books from my TBR 🙂
I’d love to read 30 books for pleasure this year (the ones I copyedit, dev. edit, proofread, etc. don’t count!), many of which should come from my Kindle, which is still (remarkably) backed up from gifts I received for my birthday in 2019 and Christmas 2018 (and now 2019 because, well, you know…BOOKS!). But hey, that spiffy downtown library we have is only mere blocks away from where I work and my willpower is only so strong… 😀

Love these goals! I’m aiming for 40 books (50 was a mega stretch this year) and reading much more from my own shelves so I can hopefully cull some books too. And definitely more library books! I’m trying to cut down on purchases too and my library is really good so I better take advantage 🙂
