I decided to pick the Top Ten Bookish Resolutions for the rewind topic today.  So far, I haven’t made a dent with this list… figures 🙂

  1. Reach my reading goal of 60 books.  Last year, I was 7 books shy of making my goal.  All of those books were on my currently reading list and I loathe the fact that I wasn’t able to read anything in December.  Check out my 2013 year in [Book] Review.
  2. Read books written by Filipino authors.  I am Filipino and I am personally disappointed by myself because I have not read any book/short story/poem written by a Filipino since I finished my Philippine Lit class back in 2006.
  3. Listen to an audio book.  I started listening to one early last year and I was not successful at all.  I find that my mind wanders while listening and that’s not really helping my cause at all.
  4. Read more new-to-me authors.  I have tried new authors last year and I am pleased to say that some have become one-clicks for me!
  5. Review all books that I have read.  That means being up to date with my Netgalley and Edelweiss accounts.
  6. Recommend more books to others.  Unfortunately, I do not have a lot of people in my circle that love the genre that I read but I have started recommending a few to people at work so we’ll see.
  7. Get a notebook and jot down favorite quotes and thoughts while reading.  This one is a toughie since I started reading almost exclusively on digital AT night.
  8. Read the paperbacks that I bought last year.  These are some of the books that I love and have a copy of in the Philippines that I either lost or did not bring with me when I moved to So Cal.  I found them on Amazon and I have them lined up in my TBR pile.  I heart Amazon.
  9. Connect with other like minded book bloggers.  Because my friends don’t read the same stuff that I do, I want to interact with other bloggers who share my passion.
  10. Join NaNoWriMo.  This one gives me the heebie-jeebies.

Do you have any bookish goals?  Do we share the same goals?

  1. I love your resolutions! I also had a resolution to read an audiobook. I started with something short – Animal Farm. I quite liked it, but I find it's really hard for me (I actually wrote a whole post about it). I don't really have a long commute and I don't gym, I do trail runs. So neither of those are really conducive to listening to audiobooks. I hope that once I enter the working world I will have a better routine that enables more audiobooking.

    Do you have any good Filipino lit to recommend? I am not sure that I've ever read any.

    P.S. I also struggle with writing down quotes. Sometimes it just feels like it interrupts my reading!

  2. This is a nice list! For your #3–I only recently started listening to audiobooks, and my mind did wander at first. It is a different experience than reading a book traditionally, and the quality of the narrator makes a HUGE difference! But now that I'm more in the habit I really enjoy audiobooks as another way to experience books. Give it another try!

  3. I haven't listened to any audiobooks but I figure I should try it at least once. And don't even get me started on reviewing all the books I read…I think I read more than I care to review, or I'm so busy with book tours that I don't review the books I read for enjoyment. Great list!

  4. I really need to start connecting and talking more with other bloggers. It's scary though! And YES do NaNoWriMo. I'm a huge advocate for it, and also an ML for my region so it makes me happy when people express interest. It's tons of fun.
