helpfulsnowman from Colorado is reading But What If We're Wrong? by Chuck Klosterman December 31, 2017 - 11:06am

Got 'em? Post 'em. Be accountable, you shiftless layabout.

I'm looking to move sometime this year, so I want to read all the books on my bookshelf that I haven't gotten around to. That way I can leave behind everything I don't love dearly. If you're looking for Pete's version of the lifechanging magic of tidying up, it's moving every year. You get real sick of moving books you haven't read more than once. 

It's a long list, but I'm getting started now with Yellow Birds, which has been on the shelf for 5 years.

Last year, I just wanted to read any 10 books. I got to 11, so I was pretty happy with that. I had a bit of a graduation hangover that kept me from reading for a while that year. It took six months or so before I had the mental energy for it. I'm hoping to get to 20 this year. Steadily making my way through all the German and Russian classics I've found perusing local used bookstores. I'll be fairly happy if I finish The Tin Drum, The Magic Mountain, and Doctor Zhivago. All of which are great so far.

Writing goals: finish the book I'm working on now, start and finish another. Write one short story a week. Write one installment to a Patreon serial a month.

Reading goals: one short story a day. 100 books in a year.
