Making Resolutions, Breaking Resolutions

So we are just about a month into the new year and I'm still thinking about resolutions. I have my personal resolutions but I also have some bookish ones. I meant to write them down to keep me honest but time just slipped away from me (isn't that always the way?).

One bookish resolution that I have been trying to keep is to not get so excited about all of the different book review offers that I get that I forget about all of the other books that I want to read. I read really fast (I read almost 350 books in 2013!), which means I can take on a lot of reviews but I realize that I really need to be more selective so I can read all of the books that keep getting added on to my TBR list. It is so hard to find that balance! I would love if any of you out there have some advice for me on how balance these things!

This weekend ended up being nice and bookish for me. My husband told me a couple weeks ago that he had a secret date planned for us for Saturday. The date ended up being a behind the scenes tour of the new American Trail exhibit at the National Zoo, baby panda viewing also at the zoo, lunch at one of my favorite D.C. restaurants (Comet Ping Pong), and then a trip to one of my favorite indie bookstores, Politics and Prose.

Here's what I got:

What did you read this weekend?

  1. I completely relate to over-doing on the review books. I'm trying to limit myself to 2 obligatory reviews a month. But when I win a book through another blogger or Goodreads, I feel like that is obligatory, too, and I am obligated to read for book club, too. And before I know it....I don't have time to tackle my TBR!


Hi! Welcome to A Bookish Affair. If you leave a comment, I will try to either reply here or on your site!

As of 6/6/2011, this book is now an awards free zone. While I appreciate the awards, I would rather stick to reviewing more great books for you than trying to fill the requirements.
