- Read at least 51 books from my personal library that I got before January 1, 2016 (my shelves and I are going steady).
- With the exception of one book, I can only buy books using the money I get from selling books to the used bookstore. I can “buy” as many free books as I would like, as well as accept ARCs and enter giveaways to my heart’s content.
- If I’m purchasing ebooks with my book money, I may add on the audio narration without it counting against my book money. To me, adding on the audiobook is like buying a second copy of a book I already own.
- Participate in the monthly discussion posts. I didn’t do so well with this goal last year, but I’m hoping to get back to writing a discussion post every month.
These are, of course, only my physical books, and not all of them are books I haven’t read yet, but the majority of them have never been opened. Total, I have 293 unread books sitting on my shelves or in my Kindle and Nook, according to my TBR shelf on Goodreads. However, I know that’s not all of them. I don’t know how close it is to last year’s 400+, but considering I acquired a few more books and only read 58 of the ones I got prior to 2016, I’m sure it’s not far off. One of my projects this year will be to update my TBR shelf on Goodreads to get a more accurate total (most of the ebooks on my Nook aren’t on it).
