Last year I embarked of a year without buying books. It was an interesting year that made me reflect on my book buying habits. 2023 is a new year, which means new goals!
My reading goals are pretty simple this year. Read 65 books. I want to focus on reading books that I own, as well as just the joy of reading. Far too often I find myself caught up in reading for a certain reason, I just want to read for fun this year. I want to focus on rekindling the spark that reading brings to life.
I plan to still read from the libraries, as I think I will for the rest of my life. I plan to checking with the library to see how long a wait time is for a title before buying the ebook or hard copy. I am going to buy a few books this year and snag some Kindle Deals, but it will be in mindful way.
The 12 Books Picked By Fellow Readers
This year, I also wanted to read some books that fellow readers on Twitter enjoyed. So I asked for 12 recommendations for me to read. I am pleasantly surprised with the results and plan to read at least one of the recommendations each month. I am excited to see a few titles I wanted to read this year, so this will be a smooth journey through fiction.

2023: A Year of Reading
I wanted to keep this year simple, not only so I could rekindle a love for reading, but also so I could focus on building up my blog and work on my personal creative projects. Overall, I am excited to what 2023 has to bring. I wish you all a year full of happiness and peace.
