Tackling the TBR Week 3: Jan 15 - Jan 21, 2021

  

I am now entering year three of Tackling the TBR. Slowly but surely I have made big strides in getting by TBR under control. When I first started in 2019, my TBR was topping out at over 5,000 books. I don't know that I will ever get below 500, but a #BookDragon can dream!


I will be posting on the 7th, 14th, 21st, and the last day of the month. Feel free to join in if you'd like!

Top Ten Tuesday | 2021 Bookish Goals



So I kind of already did this post on January 1st but I am re-sharing it for this week's Top Ten Tuesday because I don't do resolutions of any kind except this. And these aren't resolutions, they're more like goals and I am suuuuuuper competitive - especially with myself - so there's that.

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 list 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!
