BOOK CHAT: 2021 in the Books

Hello Out There & Happy New Year!

It's been a hot minute since I last made an appearance here in my little corner of the internet.  Life has been crazy busy with lots of changes, ranging from the good to the not-so-great.  Throughout all the chaos, I found myself trying to find time to dive back into the books.  Sadly, I did not have much luck.  Let me show you the stats of my WORST reading year EVER.

I am showing that I completed 16 books in some places, and 15 in others.  Either way, I have never read this little before.  And, I could feel it immensely.  For that reason, I give you my goals for 2022:

  • Read every day, even if it is only one page or 10 minutes of audio.
  • Read 50 books for the year.
  • Write (almost) every day.  This could be journaling, blogging, or one of my many other writing projects.
  • Launch my new project.  The only thing I will say about my super secret project is that it has everything to do with the written word, and it will be launching soon.

I am not sure how these new goals will transfer to here on the blog, but I am hoping that these new goals for the year will help me find the balance that I need and have been missing for the last couple of years.  Maybe, just maybe, I will be able to find my inner peace by returning to the words where I have found it in earlier years.  And, maybe, just maybe, I will be able to start sharing here regularly again.  Here's to a great year!

YOUR TURN:  Tell me about your 2021 reading and what your goals for 2022 might be.


  1. I found this year to be an extremely hard one for me reading wise as well! My own personal goal is to read a little each and every day as well. Some progress is at least progress. Wishing you luck in your goals and excited to hear about your secret project!

    1. Bonnie ... I am so glad to hear that I am not alone in my lack of reading. For our first week of the year, I have definitely made some progress and read almost every day of the week and if I count audiobooks, I can say every day. Baby steps!

  2. I love your goal about writing every day. I try to blog or write in my journal, but it doesn't always happen. I might copy your goal.

    1. Kami ... I was not 100% successful with this goal this week, but I did write a little bit this week. I really want to establish this habit, even if it is just a little journaling every day. That is better than nothing.
