My Goals for this week are:
  • to read more pleasure books – which are books I don’t have to read for university or review copies
  • to dedicate more time to reading at home – I usually read on public transport and I would like to specifically dedicate more time to reading at home which means I will have to prepare all my stuff I need for work for the next week today.
and one goal which would be amazing if I could reach it is:
  • to read at least three books this week – I have a lot to do next week (uni, work, studying – exams are coming up) but I know that I usually read more when I have a lot to do. So maybe this goal is reachable. I will try my best.

I don’t want to post a complete list of books I want to read because I am more this “have-a-look-at-my-bookshelf-and-pick-the-book-that-appeals-most-to-you” girl. Which means that I often plan to read a book but than it doesn’t fit my mood on this special day so I put it back and start another one.
 Have you signed up for it yet?


  1. Great goals! Good luck! I understand reading what you're in the mood for, I'm like that, too.

  2. My read-a-thons usually come as a surprise even to myself. I get caught up in something and stop sleeping altogether. But an organized one? I'm not sure...
    Thanks for stopping by.
    Followed you!

  3. Great goals. All the best for your exams too.

  4. Good luck with your goals and I like the fact that you are picking and choosing books as you go. Should make it even more interesting. Have fun!

  5. I love all of the nostalgia in your header! YAY for reading pleasure books! Good luck this week!
