Reading Goals – 2012


Projects, challenges and goals. You know I love ‘em all.

The Goodreads Reading Challenge
Last year, in the beginning of 2011, I stumbled upon Goodreads. Goodreads is an online community and a holy grail to everyone that loves to read.

It’s best described as an online bookclub where you can share your reviews and keep track of all the books you have read, are currently reading and want to read in the future.

But we were talking about projects, challenges and goals. And that is where The Goodreads Reading Challenge comes in. When you sign up for Goodreads you can enter the number of books you would like to read this year and a little widget will keep track of how you’re doing.

This means that you will know exactly how many books you are behind or ahead. And for the first time ever I am on the right track! Ladies and gentlemen, hereby I present, my progressbar:

So, as you can see I want to read 50 books this year. It shouldn’t be a problem. There are 52 weeks in a year and I think it’s very doable to read one book a week.

The first read book of 2012 is Julie & Julia by Julie Powell. It took me three months to read the damn book!
I loved the project on itself, and I always like to read about bloggers but Julie is just so… gross! Every time I read the book I felt like disinfecting my hands. Who in the world has maggots in her kitchen? That’s just wrong!

Are you participating in any reading challenges this year? If not, have you set yourself a reading goal?
