Happy New Year, everyone!
So … any Reading Resolutions? Say, specific books you plan to read? A plan to read more ____? Anything at all?
Name me at least ONE thing you’re looking forward to reading this year!

Happy New Year to all my dear blogging friends and readers! I hope everyone had a great reading last in 2008! I did, but I am hoping to do better this year.

I suppose my reading resolutions is the same as in every year ~ to read as many books as I can, and to explore more new-to-me authors. I am also looking forward to all the reading challenges I have participated for this year, and hopefully be able to complete all of them since I did not complete a few of them last year. And of course, I think my biggest challenge is to read all the books in my TBR pile but I think this is very unlikely.

What about you?

    I've never participated in a challenge before - I'm afraid I wouldn't be able to keep up! I'm hoping to read some classic literature this year.

    Happy BTT. I've picked my challenges to help me get through my TBR and wish list.

    Not much in the way of resolutions for me either...I just hope 2009 is as good as 2008 was reading-wise. If it's not quite as good, I'll be happy too :P


  7. Yvonne Says:

    I've joined several challenges too in hopes that it will help with my towering TBR. Good luck and Happy New Year!

    Happy New Year, Melody!


  10. You have a great set of reading goals for this year, Melody! I want to read more this year as well. Good luck in the New Year!


  11. I'd like to make some progress on my TBR pile too, but I suspect it will only continue to grow!

    Resolution is never written on stone. I don’t want resolution to fetter my reading spontaneity. The rough sketch is that I should read more nonfiction this year.


  13. Trish Says:

    LOL - TBR is a big one for me. :) I don't have any specific goals yet, but yours are great!


  14. Yep, getting through the TBR pile is a big one, plus reading a wider variety of books and new authors.
    Happy new year.

    I hope to read more books "just because I want to" this year.

    Same thoughts here! Here's wishing you a blissful year of reading, reading and more reading! :D


  17. violetcrush Says:

    My TBR pile has almost 70 books I think. That is more than I read this year, much more. But yes, I would like to decrease it too.


  18. Dar Says:

    I love it! Now that is one resolution I could actually keep. lol.


  19. Iliana Says:

    Happy New Year Melody!

    I'm looking forward to the reading challenges too. I've controlled myself a bit and have stuck with shorter challenges for the most part so let's see if this helps with me completing more - haha...

    Hope you have a great reading year ahead!

    Those resolutions sound perfect, Melody! I hope 2009 brings you all the love and joy you can imagine! And lots of good reading, too!


  21. Melody Says:

    Thank you so much for all your kind comments. Let's hope this year will be another great reading year for all of us! Wishing all a healthy and prosperous New Year! :)


  22. Bogsider Says:

    Happy New Year to you as well. I am not much into New Year resolutions at all, but I am participating in reading challenges this year for the first time in several years and I am determined to finish at least a couple of them!

    Bogsider - Happy New Year to you! Here's to another great reading year to all of us! :)
