2013 Goals

I've been mulling over what to do goal-wise this year for nearly a month, so I guess I'd better make up my mind. As I said before, I think there is some value to writing about every book I read. On the other hand, you all probably don't care whether I achieve the goal of finishing more books than I acquire, so maybe it isn't worth documenting that horserace every month.

So instead of doing "Book Challenge 20XX" as in previous years, I'm just going to write something about every book I read. To make it a little more interesting, I am going to declare a theme for each month (except January since it's almost over). For example, one month I may focus on reading sports books. I won't necessarily read only sports books that month--after all, one of the benefits of having so many unread books is the variety of choices--but the majority should fit the category. Also I will try to create some categories more interesting and/or specific than "sports."

As for my other goals (the carry-overs noted at the bottom of this entry), I don't plan to track those online monthly though I may write about them from time to time. I don't want this to turn into anything remotely like "Dave's Self-Improvement Blog."
