2011 Reading and 2012 Goals

2011 – I didn’t keep very good track of my reading this year, missing a good chunk of books, so I can’t do a whole lot of summarizing or favorites or whatnot. I’m not even going to look back at my reading challenges – all I remember off the top of my head are POC and South Asian. I’m pretty sure I succeeded in the former and failed in the latter. Later this month I will post a (possibly joint with Mia) review of my last book of the year, Liar by Justine Larbalestier, which I picked as our January book club book. (Look! It’s bargain priced on Amazon! Go buy it!)

2012 Immediate Goals – I’m also thiiiiis close to finishing Sailing to Sarantium by Guy Gavriel Kay, so you can expect a review (probably just a short one) before the Liar one. (Also bargain priced!)

2012 Reading Challenges –So, I love reading challenges. I view them as a way to both focus and expand my reading. On that note, I’m planning on joining a few reading challenges again this year. I will update this post with them, but I’ll also make posts when I join them over the next few days. The first one I know I’ll want to join, my perennial challenge to read fifty books. There isn’t a blog set up like for a lot of challenges, just a few communities. Instead of participating in the communities, I am going to consider this a personal goal – no need to be social about it! :P This challenge, btw, really gave me a kick in the pants when I was 19 or 20. I had stopped reading as much after high school and missed it terribly. I found the 50 book challenge on livejournal and, with it, rediscovered my love of reading.
