Normally I create a list of all the books that I have read for the year, at the end of the year.
For 2019 I’ve decided to do flip my reading list and do it in reverse.
You see, I always struggle to decide what to read next. I have HUNDREDS of books, ebooks and audio-books that I want to read.
Then there are the books/series that I loved so much that I want to re-read.
There are also books I haven’t read in forever and I need to decide whether I want to keep them or not.
When Brendon Burchard mentioned in a podcast that he makes a list of all the books he will read, I decided to take on that advice and do the same.
Every year, I set a reading goal for the year, and of course, this year is no different.
I’d ultimately love to get to 60, that’s the stretch goal. However, let’s be realistic here 40 is doable, so I’m going to aim for that.

For the record, this isn’t the order I plan on reading these books in. I shall pick randomly, and rotate from ebook to audio, to ones from the bookshelf.
To keep me accountable, I’ve also decided to do quarterly book check-ins and mini reviews.
Do you have a reading goal for 2019?
