Reading Plan: July 2012

June 28, 2012

For the first time in my reading life, I have started a reading schedule.

My to-be-read pile has reached a nearly unbearable height and I’ve started to add review copies to the stack. Plus, I’ve been meaning to re-read a bunch books and I want to read more short stories.

So, once a month I’m going to share my reading goals with the world, so that at the end of the month I can either shout with victory or cry in defeat.

Every month my plan will look something like this:

Book club book
Short stories
TBR x whatever

I’m not going to schedule the TBR slots – those I’ll pick as I go. And every other month I will schedule in an extra review copy instead of a re-read.

Let’s start with July!

July’s Reading Plan

Book club book: Howl’s Moving Castle by Dianna Wynne Jones
Short stories: Love Begins in Winter by Simon Van Booy
Review: Shadow & Bone by Leigh Bardugo (yeah, I know I’m a month late.)
Re-read: Paper Towns by John Green

Check back in a month to see how I do!

    I feel there should be one more category. Books Caitlin Forces on You.

      There really should be. But I have finished all the books you last forced on me! I have none left!

    I like your plan. Very simple but still organized.

    I have a hard time rereading a book unless it has been years since the last read. But you must have liked the book, which has to be a good sign. I’ve only read A Fault in Our Stars, but I really look forward to some of his other books.

      Paper Towns is my favourite of his. I’ve been wanting to re-read it since the moment I finished it the first time :)

    Good luck with the plan. I keep thinking I should do this too but I’m sort of liking my pick what I feel like reading phase I’m going through. :)

      Thanks! I’m hoping leaving some TBR slots open will keep a bit of spontaneity in my reading.

    I really need to do something like this. Its so hard to stay on top of things when you get so many great books. Hmm wonder if locking up my iRewards card would help? Look forward to your progress :) Happy Canada Day to you

      Ha! I’m wondering if locking up my library card will help :)

      Happy Canada Day to you, too!

    I love schedules. They keep me organized and on top of things. Hope this helps you read the books you want to read.

      Thanks! Yeah, I was starting to realize that if I didn’t make some sort of plan, there were some books I’d never get around to reading.

    Hmmm… maybe I should consider a plan like that. I’d have to do some tweaking to make it fit, but… maybe.

    Good luck with your schedule, anyway.
