Reading Goals for 2012

This past year, I read 160 books.  I managed to meet–and exceed–my goal of reading 100 books in a year (with no rereads), which is awesome.  Let’s see how all my goals turned out:

  1. I will read (at least) 100 books.  (Done!)
  2. I will not reread any books (Done!)
  3. At least 10 books (roughly one book per month) must have been published before 1950. (1/10–FAIL)
  4. I will read at least 10 books by authors of color/featuring a character of color. (9/10–FAIL)
  5. At least 10 books will be nonfiction. (Done!)

With that in mind, my goals for 2012 are only slightly altered.  Here they are, in all their glory.

  1. Again, I’ll try to reach 100 books–and I will avoid rereading any titles.
  2. 15 books written before 1980.
  3. 15 books featuring a POC and/or GLBTQ characters (or the author self-identifies as a POC)

Fairly simple.  We’ll see how it goes.  What are your goals for 2012?
