Take ten: Bookish resolutions

This post contains affiliate links.

Top ten Tuesday has moved here

1. To read at least 80 books. I feel like I have a good handle on this and may have underestimated how many books I read in a year. Or, it could be that it has just been so cold out that all we do is read right now.;)

2. To do a better job knocking out my non fiction TBR pile.

3. Start the Little House series with my children.

4. Work on calligraphy/brush lettering. I received a set of pens for Christmas, so I am looking forward to using them!

5. Finish the stack of books by my bed. (seriously, it keeps trying to grow and eat up more of my floor space.)

6. Figure out the best reading/book apps.

7. Get my daughter to where she can read on her own. Working on this. She can read quite a few words, but still needs me to sit there and help her out. This may be a goal that goes into next year...;)

8. Take part in the winter challenge at the local library. This year, that means reading 5 mysteries in two months.

9. Take part in all the summer reading programs with the kids.;)

10. Fill this journal! (okay, I was running out of ideas. I did get this journal for Christmas, since I loved the Emma one I had!)

What are your resolutions?


  1. I'd like to read more books on my shelf that aren't review copies! I go in circles with this, meaning sometimes I do better than others. Right now, reading is going VERY slow. But I can hope that picks up as the year goes on. :)

    Happy 2018, Amanda - and I hope you meet all of these goals. Good luck!

    1. That is a good resolution, since I wound up sticking to the books that are either sent to me or obtained from Netgalley. I would like to go back and read older titles from some of the authors I have recently discovered.:)
      Happy 2018, Rissi!

  2. I also need to make time to read this year!

  3. Hi! I'd like to read more nonfiction this year, too! :)
