#musesofamom: How I Set Reading Goals

Thanks for visiting again today!   If you are new here, Welcome!  Please take a moment to subscribe to my blog, or click on the icon to follow me on Twitter.

Yesterday I posted nine different ways to get more out of a book.  Today I wanted to share part of my 2013 reading list.  Yes, just "part" of my list, because as the year moves forward, I like the flexibility of adding any newly released books to the stack or a treasure I may find while scouring the shelves at my local library (or Goodwill!)

Following the example of Crystal at the Money Saving Mom, I always make sure that I have a mixture of spiritual growth, business/leadership/productivity, fiction/biography and family/marriage related books on the list.  While it is important to learn, grow and stretch, it is also important to have some fun reading too.

Here's just the start of my list (not in any specific order) of what I'm planning to read this year.  If you want more information on the book, simply click on the title.


Spiritual Growth:
Wonderstruck by Margaret Feinberg
One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp
Made to Crave by Lysa TerKeurst
Let. It. Go. by Karen Ehman

Family / Marriage
Unschooling Rules by Clark Aldrich
Grown-up Girlfriends by Erin Smalley and Carrie Oliver
Becoming God's True Woman by Nancy Leigh Demoss

Business/Leadership/Productivity
Love Does by Bob Goff
Are You Fit for Life? by Jack Graham
Resolved Primer: A Look Into the 13 Resolutions by Orrin Woodward

Fiction / Biography
Killing Lincoln by Bill O'Reilly

My goal is to read 51 books this year.  If you want to keep up with what I am currently reading, check out my reviews or what I plan to read, you can click on the Goodreads widget on the right hand column of this website. You can also click on the "Book Reviews" tap at the top of my blog for a list of posts related to my book reviews.

Is there a book that you already know you want to read this year?  Please post it in the comments here!
