Looking Ahead to 2015

2014 hasn’t been too bad of a reading year for me. It started out pretty good and then I lost steam somewhere along the way. Actually I lost steam about the time I found out I was pregnant AND moving out of state (which was in the same month) … so can you really blame me?

But here’s something I discovered as I was living with my parents during the 3 weeks that we were between houses and technically homeless.

It had been entirely too long since I had picked up a book on a whim at a bookstore and just read it.

So this really got me thinking about 2015 and what I wanted to “accomplish” with my reading. I know it’s going to be a tough year. I still have a gazillion things to do with this house (boxes are everywhere). And let’s not forget the fact that almostĀ mid-way through we will be welcoming another child into this world. So to say that 2015 will be insane .. yeah, that’s a pretty good description!

So …. I am taking back my reading in 2015. I am not going to accept review copies (I have three more previous commitments left, one scheduled for later this week, one at the end of December and one in January – after that, I’m done for a while). I am going to read my books. I’m going to read what I want when I want to. I’m not going to worry about how many books I read, how many pages I read, how many books fit challenges that I’ve signed up for. Nope, nope and nope.

I am reading for me and me alone.

I am not officially signing up for any challenges at this point. There have been a couple of TBR centered challenges that have seriously caught my eye. But I tend to feel bogged down when I sign up for those things. So I may or may not be participating in any challenges. And if I do, it will more than likely be unofficially and something that I keep off the blog.

2015 is going to be a year of reading for me.

And I’m sooooo excited to start!!
