2014 Reading Goals: July Progress

2014 Reading Goals

  1. Participate in my 2014 Reading Challenge.
    It’s just not happening. I should have modified the challenge, or canceled it all together after realizing I was going to have a baby this year.
  2. Read 208 books.
    Still on track, still waiting to see how I’ll revise this goal…
  3. Read 40,000 pages.
    See above. ๐Ÿ™‚
  4. Read all book club selections.
    August’s book: A Tree Grows in BrooklynA Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith. I’m not quite done with it, but I will be before the meeting as I’m close. I would be done with it already except I’ve been trying to take my time and savor it, as I’ve LOVED it so far. And September’s book is one I read previously, so no worries about getting that one done!
  5. Get new children’s books monthly to share with the kids.
    While this is usually the easiest goal for me to meet, I’m starting to think that we might miss a month, post-baby. It’ll all just depend on how I’m doing, but I’m not going to knock myself out to get to the library for new books for them, when we really do have plenty on our bookshelves to keep us all occupied. Especially if I count some of the new homeschool-related books for G. They will be new books, so it seems like they should. ๐Ÿ™‚
  6. Listen to 1 audio book.
    I’m halfway through one. Now I just have to finish it. I had to check it out from the library again because I didn’t finish it in time.
  7. Read through the entire Bible New Testament in a new edition.
    The revised goal is met. ๐Ÿ™‚
  8. Promptly share books that I’ve finished via my Pinterest board.
    Still keeping up with this, thanks to the motivation of seeing this goal every month.
  9. Clear 24 more books off of my TBR stack at home.
    Read three more, so as of August 1 I need to read three more all year to reach the goal. I can do this!
  10. A subgoal of number 9: 12 of those 24 books need to be from my Christianity stacks.
    All three of the ones I read were, so I’ve met this goal.
