Okay, it is past time to share my 2013 reading goals.

What I need most is flexibility. I usually use the first week of the new year to finish up any books that didn't get completed by December 31, then plan the new reads for the coming year. As a list-maker, half the fun is writing down the books I can't wait to start, searching my shelves and scraps of paper, browsing catalogs, blogs, and PW. But as much as I enjoy seeing the stack in my bedroom shrink week after week, I realized I miss the thrill of the hunt: that electricity which propels me through the initial chapters of a new book and into the wee hours of the morning.
In consequence, no list. Generally, I'd like to vary the genre, category, decade this year. I'd like to make progress in a different series at least once a month. I am planning a couple of re-reads too.
Participating in the 300 Picture Books in 2013 Challenge means I plan to read picture books on a regular schedule and make time for cataloging them, though I always try to fit in as many picture books as possible.
