In bold are the goals from last year, followed by a non-bold number or update on the goal and then some thoughts.
Read 60 books in 2011 - 58 (not completed)
To be honest, I didn't think I could even get this close. I'm actually pretty proud of this. I projected 5 books a month, but then I started reading some rather long books and that set me back a bit. To compensate, I cheated a bit by throwing in some novellas at the end, but what with the couple thousand-pagers I read throughout the year, I don't feel too bad. :)
Read at least two of these authors (Tad Williams, Stephen R. Donaldson, Glen Cook) - Songs of the Dying Earth (completed)
This was a bit of a cop-out since all three authors wrote short stories in Songs of the Dying Earth, but then again, I didn't specify. :)
Read one of these books by Melanie Rawn (The Golden Key, Stronghold) - Neither read. (not completed)
I read a page or two of The Golden Key, but got side-tracked and didn't pick it up again. Whoops.
Read at least one of these trilogies (Coldfire, Rai Kirah) - Neither read. (not completed)
Yep, almost started Rai Kirah by Carol Berg, but no dice.
My goal was only to read one more and I read two. I'm excited to get back into this series and hopefully finish it this year.
Read further in the Dresden Files - Summer Knight, Book 4 (completed)
Yay, I need to get some more read this year. Great series.
Finish the Malazan Book of the Fallen series - Dust of Dreams, Book 9 (not completed)
I thought I could finish the series, but I just didn't get there. I better read The Crippled God before the new Forge of Darkness (Kharkanas book 1) comes out this year.
Out of 7 goals, I only completed 3, although I was very close with completing my 60 books goal. I'm not too proud of this, but it's caused me to rethink how I make my goals.
I've learned I don't do well with a set list of books I have to read. For some reason being locked into certain books gives me absolutely no desire to read them, so I won't be doing that again.
Here's to 2012, Happy New Year!
