Happy New Year to Y-O-U!!

I'm here to welcome you into the New Year!! So, what are your reading plans or goals for 2014?? I haven't thought that hard about my reading goals for 2014... Other than I'd love to whittle down my ever growing 'To Be Read Pile', which is H-U-G-E at the moment!! I'm not even sure how many eBooks, audiobooks, and physical books I currently have on hand.

I'd like to read a minimum of 52 books this year or the equivalent of one book per week. If I happen to read more than 52 books in 2014, that would be marvelous!! The more, the better, is my motto in terms of reading!

I'm taking part in some read-a-thons/reading challenges this year. I've signed up for a total of three so far, Bout of Books 9.0 Read-A-Thon, 2014 Audiobook Challenge, and 2014 TBR Pile Reading Challenge and will most likely sign up for more along the way. But I have no specific books in mind that I'd like to read, just the generalized goal of whittling down my 'To Be Read Pile'.

I'd actually love to take a sabbatical from buying books this year for myself, as I already have more than enough books to read for the next few years. But for whatever reason, NOT buying books, seems to be a difficult thing for me not to do. Anyone else have this problem??


  1. Not buying books?!?! My credit card would love that but I think I would go into some sort of personal shock if that ever happened! I'm also determined to whittle down my TBR pile (the physical books, as I've decided the cloud can handle all the ebooks in the world LOL) and we're participating in a couple of the same challenges this year.

    1. Thanks for posting to my blog! I'll have to checkout yours now for sure.

      I'm not sure how long I can hold out on not buying any books to add to my collection since I love buying books at our local FOL Used Bookstore or online through Amazon!
