My Reader Goals 2020
I set up an ambitious goal last year: to read 52 books. It's about a book per week. I made it in the end but I gotta say that reading the Saga graphic novel series helped a lot in terms of numbers!
I ended up reading 57 books in 2019, which was awesome!
Anyway, for 2020 I'm repeating the same goal: 52 books. I don't want to be too ambitious because I know the amount of time available I have to read and I know it's not getting any better in 2020.
I will work with the time I have available and I already have 33 books loaded into my Kindle. That means, I already own these books. It's a virtual pile of books.
My reader goals for 2020 will be simple:
Read the books I already own. These will be my priority.
Read selected books from the Ottawa Science Fiction and Fantasy Book Club (I will pick which books I want to invest in).
Continue with series that I know I enjoy (The Expanse, for example).
And pick some books about technology that's been on radar lately.
