  25. eawells

    My goal for 2024 is to create new habits of taking time for me by doing some things I’ve let slide – away from the books. I’ve set goals before on goodreads, but they aren’t anything major since I usually surpass them.

    For everybody I know to stay healthy & happy. I just read as much as time is available.

  38. Patricia Barraclough

    My life is too chaotic to set reading goals. I used to read at least 4 books a month. Recently, I have been lucky to read a book in two months. My goal for next year is to read more and hopefully reduce the factors that are causing the chaos.

    No reading goals this year. Instead I have a writing goal. Last year I resolved to write a romcom novel before the end of the year and I finished in October. This year I resolve to get it published and finish my Nanowrimo that was interrupted by my new job and the death of my father. If I finish early enough, maybe I can get both published by Christmas next year.
