What Are Your Reading Goals for 2017?

If you’re anything like us, your TBR pile for 2017 is a teetering stack of books you can’t wait to read—and that’s just upcoming titles! With the New Year come resolutions about going to the gym more, eating better… and more than a few bookish resolutions as we work through our personal backlists or decide to try a new genre or author. No surprise, there’s more than one Tumblr tag devoted to sharing reading goals (because yay community and accountability!), and they can range from weekly steps to one big goal for the year, like…

  • Start that series you’ve been meaning to dive into.
  • Read more diversely. On social media, @WeNeedDiverseBooks and #OwnVoices can get you started.
  • Join challenges like the 52 Books Challenge, in which you read one book a week (give or take) for the year. This comes with the bonus community of r/52book, where fellow readers can cheer each other on.

What are your bookish resolutions for 2017?
