New Year's Resolutions

So … any Reading Resolutions? Say, specific books you plan to read? A plan to read more ____? Anything at all? Name me at least ONE thing you’re looking forward to reading this year!

2008 was a great reading year for me. So hopefully 2009 will be even better. My 4 top goals for the year are:

  1. Read 120 books
  2. Read 35,000 pages
  3. Read 30 new-to-me authors.
  4. Read 45 books that are published in 2009.

I have many titles that I'm looking forward to reading this year--Handle With Care by Jodi Picoult, Long Lost by Harlan Coben, Basketball Jones by E. Lynn Harris, James Patterson's new releases and Time of My Life by Allison Winn Scotch--but I think what I'm most looking forward to is finding books that are outside of comfort zone. Last year I stepped outside my box and discovered great books and authors and I want to continue this year. I'm also looking forward to catching up on current series and starting new ones.

Finally, I hope to complete the many, many (did I say many?) reading challenges I've signed up for. What are you hoping to accomplish in 2009?
