Beyond the Books is a weekly meme hosted by KissinBlueKaren.com which gives bloggers topics (mostly non-bookish) to discuss about. This is a fun way of learning more about each other. Check out her blog for the schedule of topics.
This week’s topic is:
Set a goal, and a plan on how to get there
For this week’s topic a couple of ideas came to mind. I can make a goal to lose weight but I try to do this each year and I lose motivation. I can also make a goal of organizing our family photos but with the piles of pictures I have I don’t have the energy to go through them (plus no space to store the albums). So I decided to set a goal for something I really have wanted to do: create a TBR jar.
I’ve seen other bloggers create TBR jars and always thought these were a fun idea. Here are some examples that I found showing the different fun ways to decorate your jar:
To create a TBR jar I need the following supplies:
- A jar (the craft stores were out of stock of the size I wanted so I will have to keep looking for a jar I like)
- My list of books
- On the paper I will list the title, author, and location of the book (Nook, Kindle App, library or paperback).
- I will have books from different genres and new-to-me authors to add variety to my reading list.
- If I enjoyed reading the first book of a series I will add the next book to the jar.
I have over a 1,000 e-books (a majority were free) so this will take me a while to see what books I have. I do have a busy reading schedule the next couple of months but I would like to start using my jar in December or January.
Now it is your turn. Have you set a goal?
