Top Ten Tuesday: Bookish Goals for 2013

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list  that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

Top Ten Bookish Goals for 2013

1. Read at least 150 books.  (I read 126 in 2012).

2. Read all the unread physical books I have sitting on my bookshelf!

3. Finish my backlog of books sitting on my Kindle.

4. If I start a series, I want to finish it right away (or at least up to where the series is at).  It bothers me when I have unread books in a series and sometimes I find it hard to go back to them.  Much easier if I just finish them all at once.

5. I own all of Terry Pratchett's books, but haven't read all of them.  I have about 20 I haven't read.  I'd like to put a dent in those.  Maybe read one per month?

6.  Do a better job of reading my book club's book and/or making it to the meeting.  Although sometimes they pick books I'm REALLY not interested in.

7. Sign up for some reading challenges.  I signed up for the Dusty Bookshelf challenge, but would love to do some more.

8. Participate in some book tours this years.  These always look so fun!

9. Read more non fiction.  I have some I really want to read...just need to do it.

10. If time allows, I would like to revisit some of my favorite past books, specifically Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo, The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater, and Sabriel by Garth Nix.     


  1. Great list of goals! I want to read more of the books on my TBR shelf, but know I won't be able to get to them all. I have a LOT of books on that shelf! *L*

    Good luck!

  2. Great goals! I probably have 60+ books in my TBR pile at home, and I've made an ambitious goal to finish them all by the end of the year.

    Good luck with all of your goals!

  3. Great list! I'm looking forward to clearing out my Kindle as well!

    Good luck!

  4. Hey there! I really like your list! I should finally get to my ebooks, too! They're getting more and more but I keep forgetting them :) Also, if I want to succeed in my 120 books challenge I'll have to read more nonfiction...if only because of school getting in the way :) Good luck with your goals!

  5. LOL I too want to participate in Blog Tours, they seem like quite good fun :D
