Reading Resolutions ~ Progress Report #1

Every two months, Jenny at Jenny Loves to Read, is asking participants to check-in with how we are doing with our goals.

My 2010 Reading Goals:

1.  Read 144 books in 2010.
I’m doing well with this goal.  So far, I’ve read 31 books.  I’m ahead of schedule!

2. Write reviews for 80% of the books I read in 2010.
Out of 31 books read, I’ve written 19 reviews which is 60%.

3.  Read at least 75 books from my shelves.
I’m hardly making any progress on this goal.  Out of the 31 books I’ve read, 3 are my own books.  Sadly to say, goal #5 is preventing me from doing this.

4.  Complete 80% of the challenges I signed up for in 2010.
I’m doing well with challenges so far.  I feel that I’m at a good pace.  Of course it’s still early though!

5.  Limit the number of library books I have checked out at one time.
Um…. yeah…. not doing well with this goal AT ALL!!  With all the 2010 releases arriving on the shelves, holds coming in, it’s really, really, really, hard for me to stop checking out books!  I know, I know… excuses!!
