#BookishResolutions Progress Report ~ July 2016

The 2016 Bookish Resolutions Challenge is hosted by 
Laura at trips down imagination road and Michelle at Because Reading.

The Road So Far...
sucks. It truly does. July was a shitty shitty month for me. I'm washing my hands of it.

Reading Goals
1.  Get my NetGalley % up to a minimum of 80. Currently at 45%
**I've read some and haven't posted all the reviews yet, but I'm currently sitting on 49%. I'm sure I'd be around 53% or possibly better if I had the book reviews up.** Goal reached

2.  Finish 3 series that I ha
ve started and that are now complete.
          Sookie Stackhouse
          The Hollows
          Night Huntress
**Nope.** Goal dud

3.  Listen to a minimum of 1 audiobook a month in addition to the ones with the boys.
**Nope** Goal dud

4.  Work on backlogged review requests. Try to rebuild review spreadsheet that was lost when computer crashed to help with this goal.
**Slowly working on this one.** Goal in progress
Blog Goals
1.  Write reviews no more than 24 hrs after completing book unless real life interferes.
**Yeah, no.** Goal stumbled, windmilled a bit then fell into a ditch of muddy water.

2.  Draft posts for current reads, so I only have to slot in the review when finished. 
**Nope** Goal dud

3.  Draft meme posts a few months ahead of time.
**Nope** Goal dud

4.  Maintain alternating schedule as closely as possible: M-W-F then T-TH-S with a weekly Sunday Post. 
**Looking good on this one** Goal reached

5.  Start new memes: Book Treasures and Kindle Reviews

**Meme graphics done by Michelle at Limabean Designs and first posts are ready for Feb. Goal reached**
Personal Goals
1.  Develop healthier habits.
         Move more ~ Goal in progress
         Drink more water ~ Goal in progress
         Give yoga a try ~ Goal lost in the wilderness with no food or water.

2.  Get this catastrophe of a filing system under control.
**Pffft. Maybe by December** Goal dud
