So. Last year, I set a reading goal of 30 books.
I read 25.
Not only did I not meet my goal, I also didn't want to set that particular goal in the first place. I like to read more than 50 books a year. Unfortunately, I couldn't juggle my reading schedule with WIP revisions and thesis writing and work, so I settled for 30. I didn't even read that amount.
This year, things are going to be different.
Yes, I did set a specific amount of books to read: 35.
No, I won't limit myself to 35 if I find it possible to surpass it. Other authors fuel me to get better. Their stories dazzle me with their genius. I need that kind of magic in my life. I crave that kind of magic in my life.
So here's to 2014 and goals and books and magic.
Oh, and Nutella. Can't forget about the Nutella.
