A brand new bookshelf
Own an E-reader
I read most of my eBooks on my laptop and I’ve adapted to it to the point that I actually like it. However, I plan to buy myself an e-reader in February. I’m just confused whether I should buy a full-fledged tablet like Google Nexus 2 or just buy the new Kindle Paperwhite. Any suggestions?
Read a hundred books
I want to read 100 books this year because I’ve been trying to do this for four years now and each time I fail. Miserably.
Yes, I plan to save series. It’s only my job which fits nicely with my next goal. I’m starting with Everneath recaps this month and it’s all going pretty well.
I’ve issues with letting go which I finally want to put a stop to. Owing to the fact that I’ve finished less than ten series in my lifetime, I joined Octavia’s 2014 Series Challenge. Now I just need to finish as many series as I can in 2014. Or at least seven.
Comment once daily
I actually got this idea from Asti‘s 2014 challenges post the other day and I think it’s good enough. This is my minimum because I do comment on other blogs but some days I completely put it off. I need to stop doing that like yesterday.
I’ve been wanting to start reading manga for the last six months. So this year, I shall. I think I’ll start with Fruits Basket or Naruto. What do I choose? Ancient-curse-stuff or ninja-in-training? Enlighten me.
Get my classis on
The last classic I read was Emma by Jane Austen which I’ve actually abandoned and haven’t finished yet. So along with finishing Emma, I want to read at least two more classics this year. I’m thinking Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky and The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald.
Adult it like you mean it
I read Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn last year and loved it. Sadly, it was the only adult book I read. So I think I can read some this year if I go ahead with the ones I really want to read. A couple of which are Burial Rites by Hannah Kent and Night Film by Marisha Pessl.
Non-fiction it up
Yes, I want to non-fiction up my reading. I’ve even decided the books: Freakonomics by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner, Quiet by Susan Cain, Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh and Bad Science by Ben Goldacre.
Not too hard or too easy, right?
