Reading goals for 2008:

  • 60 books (5 a month)
  • 5 books off The Big List. The Big List is an ongoing list of books I “should” have read. These are mostly classics, and since I read 4 of them last year, I figure 5 is doable this year.
  • 1 book of short stories.
  • 1 Russian novel.
  • More by men. (only 14% in 2007)
  • More non-fiction of any type.
  • Try to read anything published in 2008 IN 2008.
  • Complete my personal TBR Challenge list. This list is made of books that were hugely popular last year and that I own, but never got around to reading.
  • Continue blogging about what I’m reading.

The TBR list for 2008, in random order:

    Hi, there! My name is Beth Fehlbaum, and my debut novel, Courage in Patience, is being released in September. It goes on sale next month, though on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. I’m in the process of setting up a blog tour beginning in March, and seeking hosts. PLEASE check out my site, and let me know if you would be interested in hosting me on one of my stops! I would LOVE to get to know your teen readers because I know they will enjoy Courage in Patience.
    Anyone who hosts me in my blog tour will have their name put in a hat for an autographed copy of Courage in Patience. Please e-mail me at, if you would like to talk about my tour.

  2. You’ve given me an idea: I think I’m going to try to put together a Big List for myself.

  3. I like how you did Reading Goals. Gives me ideas. I read Time Traveler’s Wife and Sister’s Keeper. My first Picoult novel. It was ok. I actually listened to it on tape so I don’t know if that took anything away from the story. Time Traveler’s was good but a little long. I think it could have been condensed and still told the same story. I could not get into Water for Elephants and could not get past the first 2 pages of Wicked. Turned me off completely. I hope you have better luck.

  4. Bree, I’e heard the same thing before about Wicked. It seems to be a love it or hate it book.

  5. I have some of the same books on my TBR pile and I hope to read them soon – WATER FOR ELEPHANTS and THE THIRTEENTH TALE and today I started reading BEL CANTO. I have read THE TIME TRAVELER’S WIFE which I liked, but wouldn’t rave about.

  6. Lisa- Are you doing a list for 2009?
