I’m going to kick off this year with a Bookish Bucket List.  It’s a rather simple list now that I look at it, but it’s mine and meaningful to me.  That really is all that matters. Reading is now a huge part of my life and I realize I’ll never get to everything I want to read in my lifetime… However I’ll sure try !!

  • Read the Harry Potter series
  • Read at least one classic
  • Leave 2 books on Bookcrossing
  • Read one memoir
  • Listen to an audio book
  • Read a book in French
  • Catalogue the different places I read books. I want to see just exactly where I tend to read. (And maybe push myself to read in more exotic places)

And a few general thoughts that I want to be more aware of this year :

  • Don’t feel guilty of not finishing a book (sometimes, it is just not the right time or really isn’t my style) Life is short and if the book just doesn’t fit…. It’s ok to move on.
  • Publish 3-4 blog posts a month even if they are not book related.
  • As I read, jot down things as I go along. (I’ve bought a special notebook just for this purpose)
  • Doodle more

I absolutely love the notebook I bought myself for Christmas.  I was just wandering in a pen shop when I spotted my treasure.  I love it because it is imperfect. It has glue coming off the spine, the edges are not perfectly cut.  Perfect imperfection.   I was even thinking of going to buy myself a few more in various sizes.

I’m very much looking forward to this year !
