#BFC2022

A little late wrapping up June, which was a good month in terms of fitness. I made my Apple Watch move goal every day throughout the month, and increased my goal each of the last two weeks. More long #suburbanhiking with hubby as his orthopedic issues improve. I wish I‘d read more, but I‘m happy where I am. My cardiologist was happy, too, with all my test results. So, my goal for July is 85 miles, and lots of pictures.

wanderinglynn Yay! Awesome month! 🙌🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 1mo

Team #BFC2022 can you believe we're 1/2 through 2022?!?

I did okay with my June fitness goals. Not great but making progress. But I'm in a terrible reading slump. For July, my goals:

* Keep going with Future fitness app
* Restart yoga practice
* try to read something, anything

How are you doing?

Although June ends Q2, I will have to postpone the quarterly drawing. I'm getting ready to move back to the U.S., and so I will do 2 drawings in Sep.

mcipher June was a great reading month and I did a lot of yoga but I didn‘t do enough PT and walking post-summer and post-COVID has been like breathing soup ☹️. July goals: daily yoga for strength, meditation for pain course, and focus on fresh fruit and veggies. Good luck with your move!! 2mo

While I have done well sticking with my reading goals (nonfiction is actually going well!), I started working at the orchard again in the middle of the month and it kind of threw off my morning exercise routine. However, I'm determined to get back on that bandwagon for April, as well as keeping up reading at least a chapter a day of a nonfiction TBR book. Thanks for hosting & encouraging @wanderinglynn !!! #BFC2022

wanderinglynn Way to go! 🙌🏻 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 I would think working at an orchard would be a workout. 5mo
TheAromaofBooks @wanderinglynn - Right!? We are pruning trees, so it is weirdly a lot of standing rather than a lot of moving/lifting! But I still come home tired 😂 5mo

I am way behind on 2022 already, but I am catching up..a bit. I was gonna make my goals for January when I returned from vacation but instead got COVID. I was not eating well while I was sick and hardly read at all, but the last week of January was productive, so I am getting back to my normal self again and hope to return to my after work walking again this month. #BFC2022 @wanderinglynn

julesG Glad you're feeling better. Don't worry about not eating healthy, you were ill. 6mo
DivineDiana Just take care of yourself which includes being kind to you! So happy that you are feeling better! ❤️ 6mo
wanderinglynn What a tough month! Sometimes when Life Happens, it really happens. Glad to hear you‘re feeling better. And great goals for February. I recommend taking it slow and giving yourself time to continue healing and not be too hard on yourself. 💜 From everyone I‘ve talked to who‘s had covid, it takes a while to fully bounce back. 6mo

Morr_Books @wanderinglynn January was really really bad for a lot of reasons beyond being ill, and covid definitely had the better of me for at least two weeks. I'm gonna gradually start walking more but for a while just walking one mile (when I used to walk at least 3 pre-covid) would completely wipe me out. 6mo

While nice to get the confetti celebration from Goodreads when I hit my reading goal, I am making a resolution to no longer participate in their challenge.

I am regularly stressed out by GR showing me how far behind I am and sure as hell didn‘t appreciate their ‘check-in‘ emails with suggested ‘short reads to get back on track‘.
Shut up, GR.

Onward, I need to keep reading fun by posting on Litsy + looking into StoryGraph as a GR alternative.

elkeOriginal If there are any #storygraph users with tips, hit me up! #TheStoryGraph (edited) 8mo

@Andrew65 #MarvellousMarch

I had two goals. The first was to finish the books I‘d picked up and started, but hadn‘t completed. The second was to at least start a couple I‘d been telling myself I wanted to read and since it‘s women‘s history month, it seemed like the perfect time. Roughly two chapters into Sensuous Knowledge and starting chapter four in Biased.

Andrew65 Looks great. 1y

#2021ReadingGoals #JumpIntoJanuary
I set the first two goals every year. The third is important to me because I tend to sit on borrowed books and it's a bad habit; luckily my friends are so generous! The last few feel a little more nebulous, but I don't want to reduce diversifying and decolonizing my reading to a numbers game; instead, I want to broaden my support of authors who are BIPOC, disabled, LGBTQ+, in all ways, and far into the future.

My 2021 Reading Goals are going to be loose ones this year!

📚Read 100 Books... hopefully exceed that - tracking on both #goodreads and #storygraph this year

📚Continue to diversify my reading - including books by and about a variety of BIPOC authors/characters, LGBTQIA+ authors/characters, taking place in cultures other than US/UK, and generally try to expand my horizons as much as possible. Would love your recommendations!!

⤵️

MeganAnn Continued... 📚Trying to read more books off my shelves and/or from the library, buy less. #pennyperpage should help with that (See my post on that from a few days ago). 2y

I realize the year isn‘t even halfway over (how can it only be mid-June? I feel like I‘ve aged 20 years since March!), but it can‘t be too early to set up next year‘s personal reading challenge, right? I went nuts comfort book buying, so I think next year, my only goal will to try to conquer at least 3/4 of these stacks. I plan to read a couple of them this year, but ooof. There‘s a lot of books here. #madness

ItsAnotherJen That IS a lot of books!! But no worries about running out of something to read, right? 😂 2y
DGRachel @ItsAnotherJen No risk of that, especially since I have bookcases full of books I also haven‘t read. I could probably never buy another book and still not read all of my shelves before I die, especially if you count my ebook collections. 🤦🏻‍♀️ 2y

Happy Wednesday (yes, i'm late again!!! SORRY 😭)! It is #NewYear_NewYou day. I thought i would go towards moods and books today. I found a site that helps you pick books to read by how you are feeling. Give it a look. Hope you can check off some of that TBR with your moods.

jinxmoon I made the Sidecar Cocktail after reading The Starless Sea 😅 2y
Prairiegirl_reading The peanut butter bars from Kitchens of the Great Midwest. Super easy and I recommend if you like peanut butter cups. 2y

With the pandemic, some of my goals are on pause at the moment. But I am doing okay with others. I have made something similar to a wheel of life in my bullet journal (this year and previously) because I think they are pretty and it is nice to compare them to previous years. But I don‘t find that it helps with working towards my goals specifically haha

#SocialDistancingMay #SocialDistancingParty #NewYear_NewYou

ElizaMarie I don't really know what a wheel of life is really. Would you care to share yours? (Unless of course it's too personal)

Also, I feel like COVID gives us an excuse to just do more self care and really prioritize family relationships (which is a good thing). I don't really feel super productive but.. I don't think its a super bad thing)

jb72 I‘ve not heard of the wheel of life. Sounds interesting. 2y

sb3626 This sounds like so much fun! Are the goals only reading related? 2y
jb72 @sb3626 No our goals are personal although reading is included as well. It‘s a lot of fun and very nice to have encouragement. 2y
sb3626 @jb72 that sounds perfect I could definitely use that! How do you join? 2y

I read a lot of books last year, but I was also largely unemployed. As a result, I made my reading goal smaller. I might have to increase it if I keep reading at this pace 😬

OriginalCyn620 Wow! That‘s a lot of series! Good luck! 3y
EadieB @OriginalCyn620 I have over 200 Series that I read. 3y
OriginalCyn620 That‘s impressive @EadieB! 3y

EadieB @OriginalCyn620 Yes but hard to keep up with all of them. 3y
amywithbooks I love Greg Iles! Are you reading the Penn Cage books? 3y
EadieB @avgeyer Yes but I have only read the first one. 3y
amywithbooks @EadieB they are all great, but the Natchez burning trilogy (books 4-6) are some of the most thrilling books I have ever read. I was sleep deprived with a newborn when I read them and could NOT put them down! 3y
EadieB @avgeyer I know he is a great writer. It's just the size of his books are so daunting! 3y
MrT I have a few of those authors to catch up on too... Peter James, Stuart MacBride, Ian Rankin, Mark Billingham, James Oswald, Jeffery Deaver, Karen Rose. 3y
EadieB @MrT I think they write faster than we can read! 3y
Tove_Reads You‘ve started reading Scott Mariani? How have I missed that? 3y
EadieB @Tove_Reads No but I am going to start with the first one soon and wanted to read him this year. 3y
Andrew65 @EadieB I hate to think @the amount of Series I have on the go - likely to be between 200 and 300. 3y
Andrew65 @avgeyer Thant‘s where I‘m up to, the start of the Natchez Burning Trilogy. A brilliant series! 3y
Andrew65 @MrT Another great list of authors. 3y
EadieB @Andrew65 That's a lot of good books! 3y
EadieB @Andrew65 I'm actually going to start book 3 3y
Andrew65 @EadieB Loved that! 3y
amywithbooks @Andrew65 enjoy, they are absolutely incredible! 3y

This year‘s goal is set:
#readingqueerauthors2020
#readingauthorsofcolor2020

I‘m going into my fourth year of setting goals to intentionally read more diverse books, and I‘m not the same person I was before. I often come back to the idea of books as windows and mirrors. I need both. We need both. Books and stories build empathy, and we could use more of that in this world.

#preachingtothechoir

BennettBookworm I appreciate you! 3y
Emilymdxn Fantastic idea - I‘m trying to do something similar and tracking how many of my reads come from writers of colour and how many are in translation. It‘s so easy to wind up only reading books by white, English speaking (and straight and male) authors! In these times particularly we all need to make sure we listen and try to understand other people‘s lives as hard as we possibly can! 💖 3y
readordierachel Love this! 3y

I‘m thinking I‘ve got some pretty reasonable book related goals for the new year.

I‘ve set my highest ever #goodreadschallenge number because I have tons of novellas and graphic novels lying around the house just begging to be read (which will also help feed into my #mounttbrchallenge) 😃

I think the biggest challenges will really be the Litsy goals... I really will need to make an effort for those.

Here‘s to a new year of reading!

My November goals are a bit lofty, especially since I'll be traveling out of state & spending 5 days with family (♥️🥰). Extra reading time in the plane but less reading time once I arrive so... We shall see 😉. Aiming to get through the 5 hard copies shown here plus at least 2 audio books (1 is listed here), 1 for a launch team (also not shown here) and at least 5 Kindle books to read for review! 😳📚📚📚 So many books, so little time!
