Reading plans 2015

There are less than two weeks left in the year, which means it’s time to set my reading goals for 2015.

Like the previous two years I won’t set a number of books I want to read; I want to have fun and not feel pressured to skip longer books and feel I haven’t got time to pursue my other hobbies. For my GoodReads challenge I’ll probably initially set it to 52 and up it if I get close.

First of all I want to have fun. Read whatever I feel like, be it classics, “literature”, or fluff.

Second, I want to keep the number of “active” series to a reasonable amount. I did well in 2014; I currently have only 5 active series. It does help that I have become a lot more picky about which series I want to invest time in. What a reasonable number is is hard to define. It really depends on how many series I have active that are either made up out of long books (like the Outlander series) or series that have a lot of books in a series that I haven’t read yet (like the Guido Brunetti series).

Finally, I do want to read some of the longer books that have been lingering on my To Be Read list, so my only real challenge is that I want to read at least 4 books which are longer than 700 pages (so far I’ve read eight 700+ page books).

I was thinking of instead of having an X number of books challenge to have an X number of pages challenge. But I’ve decided against it because some books read a lot faster than others. I feel both the number of books and the number of pages I’ve read doesn’t say much about my reading.

  1. I notice that my book, WINDWOOD FARM, was on your 2014 reading list. If you read it, and liked it of course, I’d be happy to gift you the sequel for free. Just shoot me an email and we’ll set that up! 🙂
