I was too busy reading yesterday to post my #JanuaryTBR but here it is... SO MANY carry-overs from Dec, my #FlaviaBuddyRead, my #GirlyBookClub book (plus the first one in that series - who picks the second book in a series for a book club?!), four more books in my never-ending quest to #ReadMyOwnDamnBooks and the book for #ATreeGrowsInBrooklynBuddyRead. So if you‘ll please excuse me, I need to start reading!

Smarkies I am going to try my hardest to read my own books as well. Last year I bought way too many so this year I need to reduce it to a more reasonable level. 😂😂 2w
Prairiegirl_reading My irl book club hates me because I refuse to read a series out of order! Lol! 2w
janeycanuck @Prairiegirl_reading About half of us are reading the first one before we pick up the second one! 2w
janeycanuck @Smarkies I have a very strict 2-out-1-in policy. I‘m currently about 90 books behind on the out side of the equation 🤪 (PS - I see you recently finished the Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie - I‘m hosting a Flavia buddy read this year, one book a month. Care to join?) 2w
Smarkies I think I noted the buddy read in my calendar. Will try to join in! 2w

Daily game number 1 #TeamNutcracker

Remember the #WinterGames finishes at midnight on the 1st January. It has flown by! There will be a finishing quiz tomorrow, and the final scores will be shown at the end of the week :)

So get in your last minute selfies, jumpers, trees, and hours of reading today and tomorrow 😋
Have a good New Years Eve everyone!

Lizpixie In 2020 I want to up my GR goal by 100 books & read 250! I want to spring clean my library & put up some TBR shelves in our spare room to take the overflow now our youngest isn‘t moving back home. I want to continue broadening my reading horizons & find new favourite authors. And I want to put $2 away for every book I read so next Xmas I have a heap of book money to spend. Happy New Year everyone!🎉🎉🎉 3w
Bookworm54 @Lizpixie some great ideas there! I especially like the putting away money for every book :) 3w
ElizaMarie I don‘t like to do reading goals because then it turns into “homework” and I get defiant and not feel enjoyment with it. One of my goals is to be more active socially (even online) so more reviews and comments which will be more books.. also continue with the book clubs #PLC and #NWC (I do like bingos too, so I‘ll do those) 3w

ElizaMarie @Lizpixie ooo I love the idea of $ part of this!!! I might try something similar (maybe save a portion of $ for every book I borrow instead of buy?) it‘s a great idea!!! 3w
Sarahreadstoomuch I‘ll put a number in goodreads, but I don‘t really care about that. I do care about reading more diversely than in years past (and now I have 2 years of stats to compare). I also hope to #readmyowndamnbooks - like 35-40 again... and not really buy any new ones. I want to do well on the reading challenges I‘ve signed up for, but also need to do some work on some of my long term challenges! Happy reading in 2020 everyone! (edited) 3w
peaknit I‘d like to meet this years total of 75 if I can but I try not to put too much pressure on myself. Sometimes I read like it‘s my job, sometimes I page through Entertainment Weekly😊 I‘ve joined #booked2020 to try to shake up my choices. Have a wonderful New Year if reading!!🎉 3w
Bookworm54 I would like to finish my current re-reads (Mercy Thompson and The Hollows) ahead of their new releases, and try read more books from my physical tbr. I started off the year well and then fizzled out. So fingers crossed for this year! And maybe catalogue my books. I keep attempting this and then forgetting about it when I get new additions! ☺️ 3w
mdm139 GR goal of 100 books and read all of Willa Cather books 3w
OriginalCyn620 My GR goal is 85. I. Doing the Popsugar Reading Challenge and #booked2020. I want to read at least one book a month on my Kindle, because I tend to focus so much on the physical books on my shelves! Also, I‘d like to use the library more (or the Libby app) and cut down on buying so many books! 2w

Finished this audiobook this afternoon (#24b42020) and it was so good! I started a new puzzle just to keep listening until the end. Very intense story of the main characters experience during and after the Croatian War for independence. #wintergames #teamnutcracker #tbrread #readmyowndamnbooks

Ahh, December - the month I start off thinking I‘ll have so much time for reading and then hardly finish anything. Well, I‘m not letting that stop my overly ambition #DecemberTBR. Lots leftover from November, four more books in my never ending quest to #ReadMyOwnDamnBooks, my #GirlyBookClub book, the #agathachristieclubr2 book and a couple that I just really want to pick up!

Nute I never get much reading completed once the holidays begin. I just celebrate whatever happens. I like the fact that you remain optimistic!😊 2mo

Several days late with my #NovemberTBR - I did okay in October but still have lots of carry overs plus four more books added in my quest to #readmyowndamnbooks and both this month and last month‘s #agathachristiebcr2 books. Time to get reading!

Dracula | Bram Stoker

Even though I‘m #teamslaughter, I had my heart set on reading Dracula this October so I just listened to it this weekend during our epic road trip. Not terribly scary, but a more layered and developed story than I had anticipated! Really quite a good read and Simon Vance is always an amazing narrator. 5pts (I think) #scarathlon #bbrc #growup #freezerbook #readmyowndamnbooks

What a weird day - it felt like 35° with the humidex and it‘s October 1. In Canada. And then it clouded over and the skies opened and we had the loudest thunderstorm we‘ve had in ages. Anyway. Focusing on the weather helps me forget how many books I‘ve got leftover from September - those, my #GirlyBookClub book, my #MummyDaughterBookClub book and four more #readmyowndamnbooks books are my #OctoberTBR.

janeycanuck @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks whaaaa?? That‘s nuts. The temp has been falling steadily here, we‘re going to get down to 13 today, which is more normal for us. Hope you get some relief soon!! 4mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Oh wow!!! Our high today is 96 and low is 70!!! 4mo

I feel like I did okay with my reading in August, yet somehow, my #SeptemberTBR feels twice as large? I‘ve got five of my #14books14weeks reads that I didn‘t get to, my #GirlyBookClub book, a couple of books in-progress, a bunch of previous TBRs and I‘ve added four more books for my never-ending quest to #readmyowndamnbooks

I mostly listened to this book using a library audio book (even though I‘ve owned a print copy forever) and I don‘t know why I waited so long! Even my kids got into the story. It‘s a great swashbuckling adventure with disguises and a really terrible bad guy that you love to hate. #bbrc #growup #writtenbeforeIwasborn #readmyowndamnbooks #summersendreadathon

LibrarianRyan I have wanted to read this for a while. 5mo
