2014 Reading Goals

So 2014 is 39 minutes old.  I've got 1 book review and a look back at both my December reading and my 2013 to put up but first I want to start fresh with my reading goals for 2014.

1. Since I finished 130 books in a panic with 20 minutes to spare I think I'm going to leave the number as is and just try to manage my time a little better next year.  So once again I'm shooting for 130 books.

2. I tried this in 2012 and didn't make it but I'm going to give it another try.  For 2014 I want to read all of Agatha Christie's books.  I'm going to read them chronologically by character (all the Poirot's in order followed by all the Miss Marples, etc) because as much as I love Agatha her books in the mid-60s and onwards are very hit or miss.  I also want to read her autobiography and her memoir about her time spent working with her 2nd husband in archaeology.    I don't think I'm going to review all her mysteries individually though.  Maybe I'll break it up into 12 reviews or by character or something.  I've got time to figure this system out.

3.  I'd like to read or reread more classics this year.  I'm hoping to get a list of 12 books that fit into this general category in the next week or so.

4.  I'd like to not finish my reading goal in an absolute panic at 11:30PM on New Year's Eve.


  1. Good luck with your goals! I am hoping to read all of Lucy Maud Montgomery's books in 2014. That is my big goal. :)

    1. Thanks! With the sheer number of Agatha's books I'm going to need all the luck I can get. I'm looking forward to seeing your take on the Montgomery books. Good luck with your goals this year!
