I consider this goal complete when: I have attempted to spend twenty four hours reading. At least ten or so hours actually reading. I’m aiming for all twenty four though.

Why this goal is on my list: I have a ton of books on my shelf that are begging me to read them. Plus, I think it would be interesting to see how long I could read before I fell over, asleep. Or something. You know. I’m curious.

Additional notes: The challenge will be on April 10th, and the website can be found here.

I consider this goal complete when: I have read Fast Track: Training and Nutrition Secrets.

Why this goal is on my list: This is a friend of mine’s favorite book in the whole world, and she’s an amazing runner, so I thought I’d check it out, and I might learn something as I’m getting in shape over the year and running more on my own instead of just part of a sport.

Additional notes: None

I consider this goal complete when: I have read three novels written by Jane Austen.

Why this goal is on my list: I’ve never read anything by Jane Austen, and I know (obviously) she’s a famous female author. I’d like to know what all the fuss is about (finally), and actually finish something of hers.

Additional notes: Could read Emma, Persuasion, Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Mansfield Park, or Northanger Abbey. Pick three!

I consider this goal complete when: I have read every entry in the green devotions book, but not more than one in a day. Preferably, I will read it daily, but I understand that might not be possible. What if I’m unconscious for 24 hours?

Why this goal is on my list: Again, I’d like to make my faith more my own, and getting reading and praying done daily will help. 

Additional notes: I may end up deciding that the devotions book is retarded, at which point, I’d like to find some other devotions material to use. 

GOAL STATUS: BEGUN — 12/365

I consider this goal complete when: I have compiled a list of books and CDs and other things recommended to me, and I have steadily gone through the list throughout the month. I don’t necessarily need to finish the list in the month, I just need to be focused on it and not be reading anything else. Exception: schoolwork.

Why this goal is on my list: My friend is always moaning and groaning after she remembers “Oh, you haven’t read that book?” after she has been trying to tell me something about it. So I’d like to catch up with her and with some other people.

Additional notes: Any recommendations? 😀

I consider this goal complete when: For a whole week (seven days), I have gone to bed early in order to read for an hour or so.

Why this goal is on my list: I need to make time for myself to relax, and instead of settling down glassy-eyed in front of the TV, I’d like to get some reading done. 

Additional notes: It may be hard to never get distracted from this, so perhaps try to get chores done on time.

I consider this goal complete when: I have chosen an author, and read all of their published works. This may fall into my own discretion, since some authors will have published some essays and things that are untranslated or something and it may not be possible to read those. You know.

Why this goal is on my list: I’d like to be able to have an intelligent conversation about an author and his or her works, and be able to make concise judgments on the author’s style and such. It sounds so smart! Plus, some writers are just so genius, I want to read absolutely everything they’ve written. 

Additional notes: I was thinking maybe Charles Dickens or Neil Gaiman or Oscar Wilde or (and this one would be really hard) Terry Pratchett. It would be cheating to do Bill Bryson, cause I’ve almost read all his books already. But something like that. I’ll think about it.
