2014 Reading Goals

I know it’s already April but I’m posting my 2014 Reading Goals here. 🙂 But first, a summary of last year’s reading. 😀

The year 2013 was the year that I decided to “really” read books again. I just joined Goodreads then and decided to have 24 books in my 2013 Reading Challenge. Proudly, I have read 32 books and 2 Animorphs books plus a reread of “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone”. This number may be quite few compared to the number of books read by other readers but this is already a big improvement for me since I was just a casual reader before 2013.

Now here are my 2014 Reading Goals…

  1. Oh you can hit two birds with one stone when you read 3 from the ReaderCon Enduring Classics List, and then 4 from It’s More Fun in the Phils…Hahaha. And oh, somebody dared you to read the Divergent Series? I’ve only read book 1. And I haven’t seen the movie yet. 🙂

    1. That’s what I’m planning to do. Might even hit 3 birds with Les Misérables. Gotta hit 3 ‘coz it’s a tome. Hehe! As with Divergent, have to read them soon so I could return the books to Maria. 🙂
