2014 Books Goals

It's easy to give into the urge to create a New Year's resolution list this time of year. 2013 is gone and I'm ready to go into 2014 with at least a good to-read list. (To be honest, I love making lists for everything so there is no shortage of things to do at any given time.)

(Yes, this is exciting!)
- Read at least 100 books FAIL
-Read More Classics Mostly a FAIL
-Read more children's stories CHECK
-ABC Book/Author Challenge Mostly a FAIL
-Read all Roald Dahl that I own Read 4/5
-Finish 'A Storm of Swords' CHECK
-Read 5 E-books (opt) CHECK
-Read 5 Banned Books CHECK
-Read 5 books on 1000 Books list FAIL
-Read more of my own books CHECK
-Re-read at least one book CHECK
 I also have a photography goal to take a photo of a book a day. I own plenty so why not? I might just only post those on my tumblr but we will see how it goes or if I even remember to do it! I will take a photo of whatever book I am reading and on in between days, I will take photos of good books I own, favorite books, and other recommendations or books in my to-read list. It will be it's own little project. FAIL
