#BookishResolutions Progress Report ~ October 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 a very bumpy ride.

Reading Goals
1.  Get my NetGalley % up to a minimum of 80. Currently at 45%
**November will be key in this goal** Goal should be good.

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

3.  Listen to a minimum of 1 audiobook a month in addition to the ones with the boys.
**Yeah, right** Goal fail big time

4.  Work on backlogged review requests. Try to rebuild review spreadsheet that was lost when computer crashed to help with this goal.
**Screw the spreadsheet, reviews still backlogged** Goal wandered off without supervision
Blog Goals
1.  Write reviews no more than 24 hrs after completing book unless real life interferes.
**SCORE!** Goal WIN

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

3.  Draft meme posts a few months ahead of time.
**Nope** Goal paused until New Year

4.  Maintain alternating schedule as closely as possible: M-W-F then T-TH-S with a weekly Sunday Post. 

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
**Not happening** Goal says maybe some day

2.  Get this catastrophe of a filing system under control.
**LOLOLOL - No** Goal laughs at the superior intellect

3.  Write/plot/research my stories a minimum of 20 minutes, 3 days a week.
**Seriously?** Goal is Fantasy

Bonus: Money permitting, finish the Exterior Library. Post pics.
**No more yet** 


  1. I love your comments on each of your goals! It's odd how difficult we find this challenge though, even I struggle and it's mine and Michelle's brain child!

  2. Your comments on your goals crack me up! At least you made some of them! :)

    1. They are mocking me. lolol My blog goals do well each month. That's something, right? :D

  3. That Netgalley number is a tough one. I have had mine up to 80 percent over and over again, but then a bunch of approvals that hat have been hanging out there come through. At the moment, I have some that I don't want to read until later since they are not releasing until February or April, and I want to take the time to read a few of my backlist books.
    I can relate to the problem with trying to finish series. I have been trying to take a break from starting any new series until I finish a few. Some of the ones that I am working on have 30+ installments!
    You did well on your blogging goals! :) It's a great idea to prep posts for currently reading books.

    1. My blogging goals are the only ones I consistently hit each month. LOL I'm pretty sure my NetGalley % isn't going to make it up to 80 though. Which is quite the bummer.
