I am so not at the 52 books a year stage of parenthood, but I definitely want to read more novels and fewer self-help books than I did in 2013.

I'm still going to read parenting and homeschooling books, but I want to be a lot more selective.

I don't write or want to write anything more involved than forum posts and my private journal, but I do want to be more aware of what is going on in the publishing industry since I think that will help me to appreciate what is out there and avoid wasting as much time on twaddle.

I want to use my public library and ILL more and Amazon less. I want to remember that it's okay to buy multiple copies of used paperbacks so that I can legally share them. I also want to splurge on new paper books once in awhile, either for myself or for gifts, so that my authors get the royalties they deserve.

My original goal for 2013 had been 100. I lowered it to 75 and ended up reading 65. I think I'm going to stick with 75 for 2014.

My goal is 50 this year. I just started book 3... I'm going to have to find some short ones to read in order to catch up -- My first 2 books were close to 500 pages!
