2013 Reading Goals
Since I embarked on my Great Books Project ten (!) years ago, my life has been enhanced in immeasurable ways by a renewed devotion to reading. Well, not entirely immeasurable, since I have kept track of every book I have read since 2003 (679 through 2012).
In 2012, my goal was to read 25,000 pages. The year was a success, and the quantifiable nature of the endeavor continues to make it easier to motivate myself and to track progress.
I soared past the 25,000 page goal in 2012 and managed to hit 30,000 pages for the first time since I was in the Army, though only a sprint through ten books in December got me past that milestone, though at times I felt I was pursuing my reading at the expense of other worthy endeavors. As such, I am going to avoid the temptation of increasing the goal this year, and will repeat the pledge of the past two years:
I will read 25,000 pages in 2013.
Here's to another wonderful year of reading!
