New Goal: Read More of the Books I Acquire Each Year

I was looking at my bookshelves one night when I was struck by the idea that I want to read more of the books that I acquire in the same year in 2016. Upon this realization I decided to go through the books I bought/received in 2015 and see how many I read. I have the tendency to let books accumulate on my shelves for years before I finally pick them up. I was surprised to see that I read 27 out of the 64 books I received in total in 2015.


 

Hopefully in 2016 I'm able to read a lot more of the books I buy in that same year. I'm tired of seeing books go untouched for so long, but because this year is super busy I understand if I don't make this goal.  At the same time I've already acquired almost 20 books so far this year and I'm currently reading two of those. I think I'm off to a pretty good start!

Let me know down below what books from this video I NEED to read in 2016; as well as if you have the same book build-up problem! :D

  1. Reading more of the books I already own is a new year resolution of mine so I can definitely get this. I haven't counted but I would say a little less than half the books I own I haven't read D: I hear Firsts is really good!

    1. I hope that you reach your little goal as well! It's just good to know that it's an attainable goal and not too far fetched for me. Me, too! It's a really bad habit. I'm excited to read it!
