This round-up is EMBARRASSING, I failed so hard...



Goal: Read 10% non-fiction.
Result: I read 13 non-fiction books! On the bright side that is TWO more than last year! On the downside I read 288 books total (not counting re-reads), 166 of which were prose/poetry (as opposed to graphic novels). That comes out to 4.5% of the total books or 7.8% of prose, both of which are actually WORSE percentages than last year. >_> Going to try again because WHY THE HECK NOT, ya gotta try try try till you succeed right?

Goal: [community profile] 50books_poc challenge
Result: 44/50! At least I came close? I'm pretty sure I can pull this off in 2017 with just a bit more work reading deliberately. I'm actually pleased with this one, didn't meet the goal but increased my number from last year's 32. Repeat goal for 2017.

Goal: Post at least once a month on my professional blog (included as a book goal because I figured most of these posts would be book reviews).
Result: FAILURE. UTTER FAILURE. THERE HAS NOT BEEN A POST ON MY PROFESSIONAL BLOG SINCE 2014.

On the bright side I started a budgeting and cooking blog a couple weeks ago and I've put up three posts? So I will take this as a TINY bit of hope. Will focus on posting consistently there and abandon my professional blog as my heart clearly did as soon as I graduated from library school. Not putting a concrete post goal to this one, I'll just be happy if it's still active at the end of 2017.

New Goal: Read 50 books out of my TBR list because it is HORRENDOUS, there are over 1000 books on my goodreads to-read tag and that doesn't even include books I've bought but haven't read yet.

So that's the deal for 2016! MAY 2017 SEE ME BECOMING A BETTER STRONGER WILLED CONSISTENT PERSON WHO IMPROVES EVERY DAY. Happy New Year all!
