    "...Read books on your shelves that have gone unread for far too long. Selecting books from the year before (in this case, 2012 and before), read as many of the unread ones as you can. It’s up to you if you want to keep them or give them away afterwards, the main goal is to turn those unread books into read ones. The Main Rule: Do not include books acquired during 2013, it defeats the purpose, read those books from before 2013 started."

    1. Indie Fever - love it!

      I upped my goal to 75 (from 60) on Goodreads this year. It's hard because I spend so much time re-reading my own books in the editing stages along with beta reads, all of which don't reflect in that goal.

      I also signed up for Melissa's Witches & Witchcraft Challenge. I think I'll go for the Maiden level as well. First book I started this year: The Secret Circle.

      Happy Reading in 2013!

      1. I'm actually going backward instead of forward, with nursing school and all. This past year I read 80, but I'm going back down to 50. I figured 4 books a month should be accomplish-able.

        I LOVE Melissa's reading challenge! Witches FTW!
