2019 Reading Goals

 

Read 75 Books

  • I have currently read 14 books this year. According to Goodreads, I am 4 books ahead of schedule.

  • I was only able to read 34 books last year.
  • Make sure as I try to achieve this goal, reading is still enjoyable and does not feel more like a requirement. 

 

Post Consistently

  • Try to post every 2 or 3 days consistently.
  • Post quality content. 
  • As this is a newer blog, be responsible about posting book reviews in order to have deeper discussions about books I like/dislike. 
  • Make sure to tweet out new posts to increase potential audience.
