My book/reading goals for 2006
Filed under: General Reading — Ibis at 4:23 pm on Saturday, December 10, 2005

1. I want to read at least 3 books in French and work on some Latin translation throughout the year.
2. I want to finish the complete works of Aristotle by year’s end. (I’m hoping it won’t take so long once I’m finished the Organon).
3. I want to continue my CanLit project and be reading at least one Canadian classic at all times until I finish the list. Hopefully I’ll get some company in reading some of these books.
4. I want to be reading at least one book that I already own at any given time. I want to eventually reduce my shelves to Permanent Collection and *new* TBRs–not ones I’ve owned for over a decade!
5. To this end, I want to release all the books I don’t need, either through RABCK or wild release. I also have a classics book box in mind.
6. Speaking of releasing, I want to organise a public wild release of CanLit on Canada Day–maybe a big flag or maple leaf made out of books?
7. I want to return or renew books from the library instead of paying more for fines than I would have in buying the books.
8. I want to work on *writing* a book–at least 2000 words a week.

    If you need any help to choose the French books, I could probably help you out. You have good reading goals and I hope you’ll succeed especially reading Latine with all the declinations !

    Good luck with the CanLit and I hope the mass-releasing on July 1st will be successfull.

    Thanks, I’d love some help with the French books. I know I’m going to try at least one Gabrielle Roy, but of the others, I haven’t a clue. About the Latin–it’s going to be tough going at first I think–my Latin is so “rusty”. And thanks for the mass-release good wishes. The more I think about it, the more I want to get the CBC or at least a local TV station involved–publicity and permission rolled into one.
