  2. Decrease my TBR list is such a hard one! Especially taking part in memes like this, I keep adding to it much faster than I can read new books. However, I recently deleted a bunch of books from my TBR which I'd read Kindle samples of and decided they weren't for me after all. That was a good feeling!

    Good luck with your goals. I also want to get to know fellow bloggers better. Here's my list: http://annabelsmith.tumblr.com/post/39982227770/top-10-tuesday-bookish-goals-for-2013

    1. It is hard. I tend to read the kindle samples also. Helps a bunch. There were books I thought I wanted them read the samples and realized I didnt.

  3. Every year I try to decrease my TBR pile but it never seems to work. I have a bit over 50 right now and if I bought nothing this year I could burn through it. I'm okay with that not happening. I like options, I guess!

    1. I agree. It's like a make a dent then I find books and the list goes back up again. Vicious circle.

  8. If you like ebooks, and you have a device that can read ePubs, you can try signing up to a library that has an ebook collection. I have subscriptions to 3 different libraries in my state (not just my local area) and it's reduced my book spending like you wouldn't believe.

  10. I'd like to read out of my comfort zone this year too, experiencing new genres. Decreasing my TBR and keeping book spending down are also ones I'd like to accomplish this year. I also like your goal to read more book reviews and get to know more bloggers. Thanks for visiting my list!

  21. I love the 'continuing spreading the word about great books.' I think I'm going to make that a focus this year. Whenever my friends ask me what to read I freeze. I always smack myself after, like, 'you read great books all the time and talk about them on the internet, why can't you tell them to people in real life?!' Great list!

    1. I know what you mean. Im the same exact way. I always freeze. I think its the whole being put on the spot thing.
