I went back and read my resolutions from last year and BOY WAS I OPTIMISTIC. Thanks 2020! In retrospect, compared to a lot of other people, we did just fine in the year that ruined everything for everyone. So I’ll just be thankful for that.
2020’s Resolutions and How I Did:
I challenged myself to read 30 books for the year and I read 40. To be fair, I knew 30 was something that could easily be accomplished but I just didn’t want the pressure of not reaching an unreasonable goal.
My main goal was to spend the least amount possible on books and to work on the ones I already owned. I read 30 books that I owned and bought 17. Technically, that makes me successful. I spent $41.59 of my own money on books for the year and $20 from an Amazon giftcard. Not too shabby!
Read more non-fiction. I read 6 books in that genre which is up from the 2 I think I read the previous year.
I borrowed 7 books between Ignited Moth and my little cousin and checked out ZERO books from the library.
The one bookish goal I did not accomplish was building a bookshelf. That’s two years in a row that I failed that one.
2021 Bookish Resolutions:
Continue working on my current stock at home. Since the world is still on fire, the motivation for this will probably be easy.
Spend as little as possible on books. I’ve got other goals that require money and a giant stock of books at home so I feel like this is a no-brainer.
Mood read the entire year. I’ve been so much happier since doing this that I need to make it a priority.
THIRD YEARS THE CHARM RIGHT??! Build a bookshelf. :3
2021 Non-Bookish Resolutions:
Continue to pay down credit cards. (We did pretty good at this in 2020 since we weren’t going anywhere.)
Invest money in new clothes. Clothes are not something we spend a lot of money on and we could both use some upgrades, so this is to be the year that we clean out and restock our wardrobes.
What resolution are you MOST excited to tackle in 2021?
