#BookishResolutions Progress Report ~ August 2016

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

The Road So Far...
is full of potholes, dead skunks, double yellows and scooters holding up traffic. Why didn't I make reasonable goals like:
1. Read 3 Monster Porn a month 
2. Read 10 books before writing all reviews in one sitting 
3. Drink multiple mugs of tea while drafting posts 
4. Bang head against desk and/or keyboard several times a day
Reading Goals
1.  Get my NetGalley % up to a minimum of 80. Currently at 45%
**Pretty sure I'm at a good %. Won't know until I start pubbing reviews in NetGalley November** Goal in progress

2.  Finish 3 series that I ha
ve started and that are now complete.
          Sookie Stackhouse
          The Hollows
          Night Huntress
**This is just...sad. I haven't started a single one.** This goal was kidnapped by aliens and hasn't been returned yet.

3.  Listen to a minimum of 1 audiobook a month in addition to the ones with the boys.
**Yeah. No.** Goal may pick up now that school is back in session.

4.  Work on backlogged review requests. Try to rebuild review spreadsheet that was lost when computer crashed to help with this goal.
**Nope. Not even. **Goal will resume after I get my NetGalley November books read & reviewed.
Blog Goals
1.  Write reviews no more than 24 hrs after completing book unless real life interferes.
**... **Goal is laughing too hard to catch breath and report in.

2.  Draft posts for current reads, so I only have to slot in the review when finished. 
**Yay! This one is good!** Goal accomplished

3.  Draft meme posts a few months ahead of time.
**This one is also good! I'm on a roll now! ** Goal accomplished

4.  Maintain alternating schedule as closely as possible: M-W-F then T-TH-S with a weekly Sunday Post. 
**This one is so easy I should really mark it complete. Who am I kidding? I need this one in the WIN column each month.** Goal accomplished

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
         Drink more water
         Give yoga a try
**One out of three is pretty good, right? Right?**Goal is still a work in progress.

2.  Get this catastrophe of a filing system under control.
**Maybe next year. **Goal buried in a paper landslide.

3.  Write/plot/research my stories a minimum of 20 minutes, 3 days a week.

This goal is dead.

Bonus: Money permitting, finish the Exterior Library. Post pics.
**Nope **


  1. I'm lmao right now. Yeah so with you on the Dead goals. Why didn't we set more realistic goals? A great one for me would be, "read and read with no thought to reviews at all. Panick when writing reviews from months ago with almost no notes." lol!

    1. More appropriate goals will be next year. lol

  2. You crack me up with your commentary of what has happened with your goals. :) I haven't done very good with my goals

    1. I gotta have some fun even if they are kinda accurate. lol

  3. I love your commments on your goals! But I wouldn't worry too much, its my challenge and I've been failing hard at several of my goals!

    1. This year has just been a big suckfest for goals. lol
