Blog Hop: Setting Goals

book blogger hopThis week’s Book Blogger Hop question: When you set a yearly reading goal, do you set it high to force yourself to meet that goal or do you keep it low and normally go over that goal any way?

When I tell people about my reading goals, especially if I’m saying all this out loud, I’m sure it sounds like I set very high goals.  And I do set something that I have to put some effort into reaching…but I always set goals I feel are very attainable.  If it gets stressful, that just defeats the whole point of reading.  My intention in setting a reading goal is always to encourage myself to read books I really do want to read, I just don’t think about.  If I said I vaguely wanted to read more parallel universe books, it might happen (but probably not); if I set a goal to read twelve in 2016, I have to pay attention but it’s pretty easy to do!

    I’m with you, Cheryl – the goals may look high to some, but they’re books I want to read. The trouble is finding the right challenges out of the many that pop up in the winter!

    I don’t set any reading goals for myself, but I do always have one or two books I am actively reading. I would feel like it was strange to not be reading anything. I plan ahead and pick out the next book to read when I’m about 80% through my current one, so I’m ready to start a new one as soon as I finish the one I’m reading. That’s my only goal.
