Top Ten Bookish Goals For 2013

 Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish.

This week's topic:  Top Ten Bookish Goals for 2013

I don't have 10 bookish goals so I am splitting this up into bookish and non-bookish goals.

Bookish Goals:
1.) Read 75 books in 2013-This is a low goal for me but considering that life will be changing dramatically in June, I don't want to set my number too high.

2.) Read books that I own-Last year I didn't read very many books that I own.  This year I plan to make at least every other book I read, one that I already own.  There are so many books on my shelf that I want to read that I just keep putting off in favor of a library book.

3.) Purge book shelves again-This will be easier once I make a dent in my TBR pile of books.  I own a lot of books I bought on a whim that I don't necessarily want to keep forever.  Once I have read them, I plan to get rid of them.

4.) Buy fewer physical books-Until I am settled in a house that I plan to stay in for a LONG time, I really need to limit the actual print books I purchase.  Moving them is such a hassle so I think I will try to limit my book buying to ebooks.  I do know of a few books coming out this year that I will purchase in print format but that's it.

5.) Try to keep up with the blog-I got kind of burnt out on the blog and reading for a while and I am kind of getting my momentum back.  However, I am really backed up on posts since I am just getting into the swing of things again.  I need to make sure that I am doing a little every day to keep from getting behind.

Non-Bookish Goals:

1.) Exercise 5-7 days a week-I am no longer running but I do still try to get in some form of exercise on a regular basis.  I am starting to worry that this may fall to the wayside and am going to really try to keep moving.
2.) De-clutter the house-We just moved in August but for some reason our house feels messy and cluttered already.  I need to spend the next couple months reorganizing everything!  Especially since we now have to add some additional furniture to the house...like a crib.

3.) Re-evaluate budget and finances-Our finances aren't a problem at all but we could definitely organize things a lot better.

4.) Work with Turbo on refreshing his obedience skills-For the most part, Turbo is a good dog.  However, he could use a refresher on some of the obedience training he received when we first got him.

5.) Have a wonderful year!-Enough said. : )
