Okay so last year I failed miserably at reviewing all the books I read here. I think I left off around August? Sometime after that I did start trying to post more reviews on Goodreads to sort of make up for it.  Though I didn't deliver on my goal to read and review 100 books, I did meet a big goal set when I got my new job in March: reading more children's novels, graphic novels, and picture books. (Actually, had I included picture books I would have been well over 100 XD)

This year I'm going for more realistic goals (which do not include reviewing every single book I read).
  • Read at least 75 books. (A lower and I think easily achievable goal. This should give me more flexibility to branch out into some new genres.)
  • Continue mission to select books that I truly want to read, not books I think I should read. If I'm bored with a book, don't like it, or find it makes me VERY ANGRY, I'm allowed to just quit.
  • Read a couple books about Islam, both in America and globally, and including something about women in Islam. Columbus has growing Muslim immigrant and refugee communities, and in edition to being personally interested in religions, I think it's important to understand the traditions and beliefs of a marginalized group that is becoming an important part of the local community. 
  • Bully Heather into reading everything I love. (jk) (Or not really.)
That seems like a good place to start, yes?
