Arrow Do you have any reading goals for 2014?

Are there a certain number of books you want to read before the end of the year? A certain number of pages you'd like to read? Maybe you want to read something new or have a specific type of book you'd like to read before the end of the year. Perhaps it's a set of books that you would like to read?

If so, then reserve a post and keep track of your reading list! (feel free to ask a Knight to help)

Oh! I'm so happy to see people interested in tracking their reading for the year and reserving posts here! :3 I've added your names to the list in the first post, by the way.


I am off to a great start... two books, read in their entirety, within a week. I had almost forgotten what it meant to read truly engaging books! There are two more in this series, and the author has numerous other books available for the reading as well. It should keep me busy for a while... or at least until I want to read something from a different genre or author...

-Claims space-
I'll do much better this year I swear.

-gives herself her serious face. ಠ_ಠ -

10 books? I'll try to see if I can't do ten, and I don't have a posting goal this time around, So I think I will be ore inclined to read more.

Congratulations on your two books read so far Queenie. :3

Added everyone who has posted their lists/reserved a spot to the first post. Glad to have you join us! Good luck accomplishing your reading goals for 2014! :3

I've also updated my own reading list with another full book read (yay! - that's 3 full books read in less than 2 weeks of the new year) and decided to add a "not-quite book" supplemental list for the articles, journals, guides, half-books (several chapters), etc., that I find myself reading in order to prepare for the kids' schooling or for martial arts training/teaching. I'm curious to see whether or not I can keep up with the list, and then to see what ends up on it by the end of the year! Guess we'll find out! :3
