Top Ten Bookish Goals for 2018

Posting on this fun prompt from here! (note: this post was added later in January from a draft on my computer)

Honestly, this is way more fun than attempting to think of "normal" resolutions.

1. Read 98 more books (standard contract)

2. Get and stay below 50 (maybe even 40??) books on my to-read shelf on Goodreads

3. Read 5 books I own but have never read. This would be a genuine accomplishment, and I am very excited to possibly reach a point where I stop checking out library books long enough to make this a guilt-free option.

4. Take the plunge and buy one of the $2-3 eBooks on Amazon that vaguely interest me, even though they have to be read through the computer app

5. Speaking of: try to find a Kindle at a garage or estate sale. I bought that Nook last year and was all fired up to use it, but turns out I REALLY hate how the screen flashes black with every page turn and cannot tolerate it, even for a pretty pink outside.

6. Set aside in savings at least some percentage of money for one of my expensive Holy Grail books: Midnight Moon, The Book of Sunnybank (not the retitled reprint!), The Ark, or Snowman.

7. Visit a new-to-me used or antiquarian bookstore. One out of town while on vacation would be ideal. it could even be the vacation goal.

8. Pick myself out a book in which to cast Mike Vogel. Or ten books. Or as many as I can cram in before this high leaves me, honestly. He made some book appearances in 2014-15 that left great impressions and I'd like to bring that feeling back. HARD MODE: find a middle grade book in which I can cast him as the dad. (the nice thing about this is that middle grade not infrequently gives you adult perspectives)

9. Go through my book collection again, including the boxes, and thoroughly and completely update my books-I-own list. I've been adding books sporadically since its creation at the end of 2012, but I know I am still missing a ton.

10. Drop off all the books I do not feel are worth taking to Half Price Books (ex-library, children's paperbacks, etc), but which still have reading value, into the Little Free Libraries around town. There are tons within walking distance.
