Reading Ambitions for 2013

I find that having some specific goals helps my reading, so I’ve decided on some reading goals for 2013.

  1. I’ll read at least 52 books in 2013. This include graphic novels, short story collections and non-fiction books.
  2. I’ll read at least 52 short stories (novellas, novelettes, short stories) in 2013.
  3. I’ll read at least one book from each continent and at least one set in another world, another planet or in space.
  4. I’ll read the winners (novels) of the following awards:
    The Man Booker Prize (shortlist are presented in early September, winner announced mid-late October)
    The Lambda Literary Awards (SF/Fantasy/Horror and Lesbian Fiction. Maybe Lesbian Mystery too, we’ll see. Will be announced in June.)
    The Spectrum Awards (usually announced in November)
    The Hugo Awards (presented at WorldCon, Aug.29th.-Sept.2nd. 2013)
    The Nebula Awards (will be announced mid-May 2013)
  5. I’ll read at least 3 non-fiction books.
  6. I’ll try not to let Mount-TBR grow any bigger than it already is.
  7. I’ll blog about the books I consider worth it.
