2020 Bookish Resolutions

Good morning one and all! It’s the time of year, quite literally the very day, that one chooses what changes they want to make in the new year. But before I get into that, let’s recap how I did with 2019’s resolutions.

Begin re-reading the Harry Potter series: I did read the first book, so that’s one bookish resolution down.

Read fat, epic fantasy novels: Semi-successful? I read four, what I consider fat, novels. I had hoped to get to a lot more but it just didn’t happen.

Like I said last year, some progress is better than no progress. πŸ™‚


Spend the minimum amount on books as possible. I have over 100 books at home and it’s time I made my way through a large chunk of them. This means no buying books, with some few exceptions: If I must buy a book for book club because it is unavailable anywhere else or it’s such a good deal that it would be stupid to pass it up. (Less than $5 and I desperately want it.) Library and borrowing from Ms. Moth and my little bookworm cousin are 100% acceptable.

Read more non-fiction. I’d really like to get back into true crime reads and other things to grow my knowledge base.

Build a bookshelf. I wanted to do this in 2019 but it never happened so I’m making it an actual goal in 2020.

That’s it for bookish resolutions.

I don’t usually do resolutions outside of books but Mr. C&M and I are making a point to change some things this year.

  1. Get in shape. It might seem cliche but we could both really be healthier.
  2. Pay off medical bills.
  3. Pay down credit cards.

To sum it up, basically our goals are to get ahead in life in 2020. We’re not doing bad by any means but we both want to be sitting comfortably in the future.

What are your resolutions for 2020?

  1. Nice, simple goals😁 I haven’t come up with anything formal as far as resolutions go, but I think buying less books is a goal of mine for sure. Happy New Year!

  2. I don’t know if getting healthier includes losing weight, but Weight Watchers has been working fantastic for me. I’m down over 15lbs in the last 3 months. So give it some serious thought.

    And best of luck on not buying books. That is a really tough one…

    1. It does include losing weight but a lot of firmer up and maybe some strength training. I will keep WW in mind though!

      Day one of not buying books – I browsed a lot of ebooks and pined after them but I did NOT buy anything. :3

      1. Ahhh, the ol’ “gym” routine. Best of luck with that, you’re going to need it πŸ˜‰

        As for browsing, don’t do it. In all seriousness, don’t even take the first step down the path of temptation. It’s much easier to say no when you’re not even looking πŸ˜€

      2. This is an incredibly good point. One of the first things I do while drinking my coffee is browse the kindle daily deals. It would probably behoove me to break my morning routine lol.

  3. Haha good luck with spending less on books. I tell myself that every year, but with little plastic men, and I fail every year. At least you and I don’t have shelves filled with drugs and drugs paraphernalia hehe

  4. If you’re looking for more non-fiction, I just saw a documentary yesterday that is based on a book. It was super interesting; the book is called Tell Me Who I Am by Alex Lewis and Macus Lewis. It doesn’t seem like true crime at first, but there is a massive crime.
