|Yes, I bought the most Lit Nerd appropriate diary I could find.|
Even if I didn't accomplish all the reading goals I set for March, I still really liked having something to work towards. And who doesn't love crossing something off their to do list or a book off their TBR pile? I for one find it intensely satisfying. Intensely. So, in an attempt to achieve that satisfaction on a monthly basis, I'm going to make another set of goals for April.
- Start reading either Lolita or Crime and Punishment. Both are practically waving maniacally at me from my shelf and I think it's time...It is so hard being bookish - I want to read everything but there is just not enough time (I feel like Liam Neeson when I say things like that). The other evening I spent around half an hour trying to decide what to go for next #litnerdproblems
- Read Books, Bedbugs and Baguettes by Jeremy Mercer. Ellie keeps dangling this right in front of my nose (I think she's trying to say something), so I'm going to take the bait and read it this month.
- Knock something off the TBR Pile Challenge list - I'm thinking of hitting The Scarlet Letter because it vaguely links to the Classics Club theme this month (Transcendentalist Literature). At least it links in that it doesn't because Hawthorne was not a follower of the ideas. Either that or maybe I'll finally get to The Book Thief.
- Get back into daily exercise - I'm almost there already on this one, having bitten the bullet and joined another gym whilst I wait for mine to reopen. It'll be good to get back into this wonderfully stress relieving habit.
- Make the most of my evenings and DO things. No more curling up in bed at 8pm - I'm 23 not 93.
- Make a conscious effort to devote more time to blogging and to Centenary News. I've been slacking big time recently on both fronts and considering how happy it makes me to discuss books, I need to spend more time doing it.
I think these goals are semi-achievable. Check back at the beginning of May to see how I did!
What are your goals for April? Any books you're planning on reading?
