No. 4 was the best thing that I could have done last year. It really helps you remember the particular parts of a book and what you wanted to say about it.

Love the others as well! ^_^

Ciska said...

That are some great goals. I recognize the buying duplicate ones. Now when in doubt I do not buy them anymore until I verified at home :)

Good luck with your goals.
Thanks for dropping by on my blog.

I've recently started taking notes again (or writing a review writing after) and it makes a big difference.
Reviews in a timely manner...sigh...this will forever be a goal I strive for with only partial success I fear ;P
Good luck on all your goals!

Brittani said...

Thanks for stopping by my top ten! Great goals! I definitely have to get on reading my galleys/arcs in a timely matter. I totally slacked off on that last year! Good luck with your goals! :)

It will take a lot of diligence to do #9! I commend you for it haha. (: #8 is one I have to do, too. Best of luck with all of your resolutions. (:

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

wow! you must have a lot of books if you accidentally buy duplicates!! jelly;) good luck with your goals!

Jacque said...

You must have A LOT of books if you actually buy duplicates. Good luck with your challenges/goals for 2013!!

Jacque said...

Good luck with all of your challenges and goals for 2013!! If you read any ebooks, I find it helpful to highlight quotes or sections I want to use in a review. It will generate a list with all of the highlighted material.

Emma said...

Good luck with all your goals! No.10 is such a good idea!

Ooo taking notes on books for reviews is something that I've always meant to do, but never do. I think it's because I read mostly while commuting, and can't be bothered to juggle my bags and a book AND a notebook! It's a bit of a pipe dream, I guess.

Great resolutions!

Dragana M. said...

Great goals I need to do some of these things myself. :) Good luck in accomplishing them & thanks for stopping by my TTT.

@Ciska - That's what I normally do, but sometimes I pick it up and don't even think I've got it LOL but with others that I'm unsure, I just wait til I get home to check.

@Sara - That's the plan...don't commend me yet I haven't done it yet LOL it's gonna be very difficult but I really must put some sort of discipline in my book buying.

@Esty & @Jacque - I've only really got one very large bookshelf but the majority of those are unread books. Most of my duplicates are from series' as I'd see it's a book from that series and just grab it to complete my series only to realise that I've already got that book :(

@Jacque - Thanks for the tip, it's a very helpful one.

Good Luck Everyone in all your Bookish Resolutions of 2013.

Good luck! Especially on meeting your reading challenge goals! :)

Good luck on all of your goals too! Many of yours are similar to mine...maybe great minds think alike? ;)

Angela said...

Best wishes on meeting your goals this year. I hope I can complete my challenges this year, too.

Milda Harris said...

I should add the read 2-3 TBR before buying a new book to my goals! It would save me money! Good luck on your goals!

Alisa Selene said...

Those are great goals!

Anya @ On Starships and Dragonwings said...

I hear ya on a lot of these! Wow, I can't imagine needing to catalogue my books though, I still have few enough that I can just remember them all and know what I own, you must have a very impressive collection :D

Rory said...

I need to make a rule similar to your read 2-3 books from the TBR pile before purchasing more. And I've got to read my galleys on time! Good luck on your goals!

Dalene @ A Date with a Book said...

I also had a similar set up to read from my TBR before I purchased a book. Uh, hope you do better than I did. Good luck with all your goals. Thanks for the follow, followed you back :)
