Unfortunately, I do this so often I can't keep track of why I ordered the book or where I learned about the title.
As I looked at my bookshelves (physical, digital, and audio), I realized, simply owning the books was not enough! I was actually, going to have read the books.
Enter my friend and professional lifeline, Cathy Mere and her post, Let's Read: It's All About a Plan #MustReadin2017. Cathy shares her discovery of Carrie Gelson's #MustReadin2017 post. Knowing Cathy was always into something good I started following her clicks. I read the posts and lists of books to be read in 2017 linked on Cathy's blog and then on Cathy's Goodreads shelf. I knew all this clicking was leading me exactly where I needed to go to get these books off my shelves and into my mind where they can inspire, shape perspectives, and help me to be a better person.
Pull some books OFF my shelf!
Organize and update my Goodreads shelf.
Choose my books for the month.
Step 4-Write my post and commit!
My to-read shelf on Goodreads is organized and updated, and I am in! I will use my Goodreads shelf to add new books and make note of where I learned of the title or why I have added it to the shelf. I am borrowing Cathy's idea of monthly planning. This will allow me to leave room in my #MustReadin2017 plan to add new titles and picture books I find throughout the year. I also want to make sure I can meet my reading goals.
