Top 10 Tuesday: Resolutions


It’s not-quite-the-first Top Ten Tuesday of 2015. The best (or worst?) time to set goals and make resolutions. As this is a bookish blog, most of my goals are reading or blogging related:
  1. Accept that sometimes I buy books simply because they are beautiful objects and not because I actually intend to read them.
  2. Don’t feel bad about not being a "real" book blogger.
  3. Find a better way to organize my books. Right now, they’re split between two rooms and there’s really no way to change that, but it would be nice if, say, the ones in the den could be arranged better. Basically, I think I want to redecorate the den. (Do you hear that, Husband? Paint swatches and flooring samples are in your future).
  4. I want to read and blog more books than in 2014. (Ideally, I’d like to get back to my 2011 level of blogging, but that may not be possible as my life is rather different from what it was in 2011).
  5. Leave more comments. Yes, this was on last year’s list. I’m still working on it.
  6. Read more books I own and haven’t read yet. I still own so many books I haven’t read -- especially books other people have given me. I think I’m afraid to read them, because what if I don’t like them and then the person who gave them to me asks what I thought of them and I destroy that person emotionally by pooh-poohing the books they picked out and bought just for me? I am overthinking this, aren’t I.
  7. Stop worrying about not doing Twitter "right." Seriously. I just don't have the energy or time for it.
  8. Try out Audible. Because the library will never have all the audiobooks I want to listen to (and I so want to hear to Simon Prebble read Patricia McKillip’s The Riddle-Master of Hed).
  9. Update my LibraryThing account every month to include recent reads. I’ve been very hit or miss about updating it and I just really need to sit down with my CueCat over the next long weekend (MLK, Jr Day?) and scan the heck out of my shelves.
  10. Just enjoy reading.
