Anywho. 2013! I have Plans. Reading plans. But not too strict of reading plans because I have terrible follow-through and I find reading far less fun if it's too structured. So here are my 4 reading
1) Do lots of readalongs. Because readalongs are so much more fun than challenges - they're generally smaller and interactive and far more motivating. I'm kicking this off with the Harry Potter Readalong hosted by Alice at Reading Rambo because Harry Potter is awesome and I can do this using audiobooks so I can still read other things and also it's been like 6 months since I last listened through the series and that is clearly too long. It starts Friday, so if you want to join up, do it fast!
2) Try a readathon. I've always found readathons to be rather crazy but also people's posts during them are really fun so I'm going to give it a shot. The Classics Club is hosting a 24-hour readathon on Saturday, so I'm going to forego everything except a trip to the spa that day (Groupon had a really good deal) and eat and lounge and read. Or at least attempt it. And not sleep, I guess? We'll see.
3) Speaking of The Classics Club, I plan to make a good dent in that challenge this year. It's my only challenge and consists of books I chose so hopefully this should work? And if it doesn't. I have until August 24, 2017 to
4) Join a book club. A real life one, with people I can see and touch and smell, because that's not creepy. I graduate in May and then the husband and I move far, far away, and when I get there I want to find people I can talk to about books. I love blogging, and I certainly won't give it up, but I really miss the immediacy of a conversation about books that I used to have in my undergraduate English classes. I plan to find a club on Meetup or make my own.
That's it! Not excessive right? I also plan to write more this year, so we'll see how that goes. What are your 2013 reading plans??
