I really let myself down this year. I had so many things I wanted to achieve but didn't make any real headway on any of them. I didn't read 20,000 pages like I wanted to. I didn't even read 10,000 pages! I stopped reviewing what I read. And I gave up on the 12 in 12 challenge early in the year because I knew there was no way I would finish it.

Admittedly, 2012 was a busy year for me and my reading goals kind of fell by the wayside. I'd like to change that this year. So, for 2013, my goals are:
  • read at least 15,000 pages
  • review every book I read
  • keep up with my reading blog
  • complete the challenges I signed up for

I like to re-read too, but I'm really going to try my hardest not to this year. There are so many books out there to read, and not enough time to read them all.
