I know people are super excited that 2020 is over, but let's be realistic. At a minimum the first six months of 2021 are going to be just as terrible. I hope Eleanor and I do not have to quarantine again but you all know there will be plenty of reading and reviewing to be done if that happens.
Over the last two years I have really relaxed and given myself a lot more grace when it comes to whether or not I am successful with each of my goals. Blogging is fun and I want it to stay fun, not feel like a job. So, if I reach all my goals, awesome. If not, oh well. Still, having at least a target to aim for is always helpful, so here they are.
1. Read 275 books - This is definitely doable and a total I have made before. I think 300 might be out of reach, even for me. In 2020 I read a total of 480 books. 199 of those were chapter books with Eleanor and 281 were books I read for myself.
2. Reduce my TBR to less than 2,500 books - Tackling the TBR has definitely helped this cause. Heading into year three of this long-term challenge, I foresee even more progress than ever before.
3. Reduce my Upcoming Review to less than 150 - Who knows if this is even doable. I spent pretty much the last week of 2020 doing reviews because I met my reading goal, but I don't know if I will ever get my Upcoming Reviews under control. I ended 2020 with roughly 230 books waiting to be reviewed. Yikes!
Have you made any goals for 2021? If so, let me know in the comments or leave a link to your post.
Happy New Year and Happy Reading!
