Bookish Resolutions

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme to share your top ten bookish things. It is especially funny for people who like to make lists.

1. I'm going to read 50 books this year. At least I will try - again. I read 48 books in 2009 and 42 books in 2010. To achieve this goal I try to read a book a week, starting and finishing Saturdays.

2. I'm going to read books already on my shelf as I bought each because it appealed to me and they still do, so they have to get a chance.

3. I will try to read more German books. I have been neglecting books from my country for too long now. I will get those books from the library and report back if I found something appealing.

4. I'm going to read the classics. First of all I think of Jane Austen I read Pride and Prejudice and want to read the other Austen novels, too.

5. I will try and widen my Japanese Literature horizon in 2011. I already read and reviewed Kitchen by Banana Yoshimoto this year and want to read some more Murakami. Other recommendations are welcome.

6. I have to read more non-fiction. That's a fact.

7. I'm an occasional re-reader. When I feel like it I will do it.

8. I'm trying to review every book I read on my blog.

As I can't think of more for now I will stop here. Thanks to The Broke and the Bookish for this nice Tuesday meme.


  1. I'm also trying to read more non-fiction. I think it's a good goal. Good luck with your resolutions!

  2. I'm committed to reading books on my shelf. There are WAY TOO MANY.
    Great list...here is mine:

  3. I'm also trying some classics this year and have a goal to keep reviewing everything I read. Good luck with your resolutions!

  4. Do you have a good book set in Germany that you can recommend? I'm trying to read globally this year, to be exposed to new authors and learn more about different cultures/places. Of course I know alot about Germany and have a good friend living next door who is from Hamborg (spelling?) but I would love to read a book from your country.

  5. Hi Mari, I will think of something. Maybe we both could read the book then and share opinions.

  6. I'm going to try different genres this year. I usually only go for mysteries (mostly cozies).
