Musing Mondays - Jan 4

Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about New Year reading.

With the New Year here already, do you have any reading resolutions or goals (challenges aside) for 2010? Perhaps a new author? Genre? Want to read more non-fiction? Write more reviews?

I'm trying to figure out what challenges I want to participate in this year.  I finished the A-Z Challenge (title version) and I more than met my goal of 25 new authors, so I'm doing those two again.  I'm also doing a couple other challenges that look like fun.  I'll be writing about those later this week.

As for resolutions - I'd like to stop buying books.  I know!  It's impossible isn't it?  It's just that I have so many and my shelves are bursting.  For every book I read, I seem to acquire five more.  To be fair, not all were purchased.  Many were left up for grabs on the kitchen table at work.  Who am I to pass up a book?  It's silly.  That being said, I'm going to be pickier about what I buy and when.  If I can wait, I'll wait to buy it.  I'll keep notes of all those I'm interested in and I'll plan it out a little better.  I might even skip the library book sales - maybe.  We'll see how it goes.

I hear you about the TBR stack growing at an uncontrolled rate. I think I add another book to mine every few days. And we won't even get into my Wishlist, both of which I have kept to a minimum on my sidebar so they won't overpower everything else!

Good luck on your resolutions and happy reading!
