January 11th, 2017 06:35 pm - Wednesday reading?
OK, it's Wednesday, let's do my reading post for all of 2016. <_<

My reading goals for 2016 were :
-200 total books (which is what I started at last year, and had to increase because I was getting too far ahead, but I don't think that'll be the case this year.)
-Finish the rest of the started-but-not-finished and review copy books
-Before Hugo noms close, read enough Hugo eligible stuff to be comfortable nomming
-After Hugo noms close, get through some of those comics you own but haven't read

I made my 200 books goodreads goal for the year! It was looking really dicey for awhile there but then I was sick for a month and also really wanting to be anywhere but this Earth, so I made it through a whole stack of to-read paperback and comics and got caught up.

I, uh, did not make it through the rest of the started-but-not-finished and review copy books. I made it through some, though, and at least the total did not *increase*. Much. My currently-reading is currently at 32 books but only 17 have been on there for more than a year, so, uh. \o/
Unfortunately most of the ER books read last year still need reviewing...
I did make it through enough to nom in all the Hugo fiction categories, at least, but it was actually really hard work? I am not doing that again unless I am actually being paid to Science Fiction as a job. I have too much old stuff to catch up on to read that much current stuff, anyway.
I didn't make too much of a dent on owned-comics last year, but I didn't acquire too many more, and I've actually been getting through a lot of my floppies backlog in the last couple weeks - I started a knitting project that's pretty monotonous, so I've been counting my rows by counting out a pile of comics to match the number of rows, and then every time I finish a row, I read a comic. I am trying to figure out how to adapt this to using other to-dos to count knitting rows.

Goals for this year:
1. Read 200 books, at least half of which I already owned as of 12/2016
2. Catch up on ER and get my currently-reading consistently under 20
3. Do a full clearout and re-sort (I am actually about halfway though the re-sort, although I am out of shelf. Clearout will be harder. I realize this isn't really about reading but close enough.)
4. Finish/catch up on at least a dozen fiction series I've been behind on. (Preferably emphasizing ones where I actually own unread books in the series.)

May do an "Actually talking about the books" post tomorrow! We'll see.
