My goals: 

  • Read the books I’ve bought
  • Try to knock all off the ones listed below in 2016
  • I can’t buy myself any books until I’ve read a significant amount of my own. Maybe 5-10 before I buy any new ones. I’ll be fairly flexible with this and see where my guilt leads me.
  • If I’m itching for newness or a book use the library first; before purchasing.
