A New Goal

This post is my seventh consecutive post! Yay! I think I've done pretty well if I do say so myself. I'll be honest it wasn't exactly the easiest thing to do. Do you know how hard it is to come up with new ideas every day? Let me tell you it is NOT easy. There were some days that I just wanted to give up. I think it started after "How I Met Your Mother." Then again that was only Friday. I think... Thankfully I spent all day at the movies yesterday and had new fuel for the never-ending posts. 

Now I’ve figured out an idea that will help me with future posts. It will also help me get rid of some of my books hopefully. I recently finished college and as I prepare to go to graduate school I’ve been packing up my room. That includes all of my books. And let me tell you, I have a lot of books. I think right now I’m up to fifteen boxes and they’re decent size boxes.

In all, the last book count was 458 books and there are definitely some I haven’t packed yet nor cataloged for my records. After packing all those boxes, I decided that I need to get rid of some books. Since there are several books I’m only keeping because I haven’t read them yet, I’ve set myself another goal for the summer: I’m going to read as many of my books that I haven’t read yet. Then I can get give some of them away, the ones I don’t want. It’ll probably be all my books that aren’t fantasy, children’s literature, or mythology. There are also some classics that I’d like to keep, but some of those books are not staying. That’s for sure! Who knows I might have a giveaway or two. Wouldn’t that be exciting? Well, maybe not since I just ranted about how I didn’t want the books I’ll be giving away, but it’s not like they’re in bad condition. These are just the books I don’t want to reread. So maybe that makes it a little more exciting? No guarantees though.

Now the question is do I want to start at the top of the list or with books that don’t fit my criteria. I think that starting with non-fantasy/children’s lit/mythology will be the best course of action. I wonder how many books I’ll finish before the end of the summer…Well, let the second goal begin!

Until next time, happy readings!

  1. Look at writing your blog as if you were writing daily in a journal - it's the same thing, basically. And it's a good discipline and habit to get into! FYI, you can also write more than one post in a day and schedule them to come up later and no one will know the difference!!
