2014 Reading Goals and (partial) Book List

books Last year I met (and far exceeded) my goal of reading 24 books, but wandered far off the list around the halfway point.  Since I didn’t do super well with having a rigid list to follow I thought I’d leave it more open-ended this year.  I like having goals to work towards, but I think this way will work better for me. My reading goals for 2014 include the following:

  • Read 50 books, picking at least 15 of those from my own bookshelf.
  • Read 2 books per month on my Kindle – I’ve only got about a million to choose from.
  • Read 12 books aloud to the girls (this schedule worked perfectly for us last year, so I’m sticking to it).

I’ve been on a massive fiction kick for the past few months, which seems to happen ever few years, but I’d like to balance it out a little with some non-fiction I’ve been itching to read, while still leaving lots of room to add as the year progresses. Here are the selections I’ve picked from my bookshelf so far:

books2 I read about half of the books on my list last year, but there was only one that I just couldn’t make it through – Don Quixote (that wretch).  Once I finally decided to quit torturing myself I immediately listed it on paperbackswap and someone snatched it right up. So now it can’t make me feel guilty anymore. 😉 Trade Books for Free - PaperBack Swap. I had a lot more success with the read-aloud list (go us!).  I’ll be back in a few days with our 2014 list.

  1. Thank you for some great reading suggestions! I admire your goals:) I was wondering how old your children are. I would love to be reading aloud to them but as they are getting older, life is getting so incredibly busy! Will you also be sharing your list for books you are reading to your children? 🙂
