This week’s topic is Reading Goals for 2022.
Last week I did a post on the reading challenges I will be completing this year, though I will primarily be focusing on Beat the Backlist to read books that have been on my to-read list for a while now.
While I do like to keep track of my reading through challenges, I decided that this year I would like to focus more on the quality of what I choose to read rather than the quantity. Various social media outlets make reading into a competition, which I have gotten sucked into one too many times now. It takes the fun out of “reading for fun.”
I would like to be more intentional about the books I read. I have done a solid job of not giving into the hype of certain popular books, and discontinuing my Book of the Month subscription has helped immensely with that.
I want to continue that trend this year but take it a step further; not only choosing to read only the books I want to, but relieving myself of the pressures to post photos and reviews on a weekly basis. If I’m able to do it, I will. If not, it won’t be the end of the world, right? 😉
