Bookish Resolution progressreport2016

2015 Bookish Resolutions Progress Report lets you check in every month to tell us know how you are doing with your Bookish Resolutions and keeps you moving closer to your goal. We look forward to cheering you on to success!

So how is it going?

My resolutions aren’t working out like I had planned but I am making some progress. I think I made it rather hard on myself this year but I am hoping to get a lot done before the end of the year so I still have time. These months just need to SLOW down a little. 🙂

DON’T FORGET!!! March 12th is our first Twitter Party. A place to chat about all our resolutions and maybe even to help out others that might be struggling. The Twitter Party is at 4pm EST. using the hashtag #BookishResolutions. There will be a grand prize at the end for participating.

My Progress Report:

  • Read 5 Physical Books from my shelf ~ 0 ~ Will be reading a few this month

  1. I haven’t found anything on Netgalley that I wanted so mind is moving in the right direction for now LOL.
    I think the twitter party will also help us see what we need to do to make this challenge more active. I think it’s awesome but we need more stuff going on 🙂

  2. I am doing well with my pie and recipe goal and my Lola’s Advice feature, but the netgalley and review pile one aren’t going well at all. I get a lot of books read, but also get a lot of new ones. I am enjoying this challenge and I am looking forward to the twitter chat, I have it marked down in my calendar, so I hope I can make it.
    You’re going in the right direction with your netgalley percentage! And I hope you can make some progress on your goals that you didn’t make much progres with so far, but hey there’s still a lot of time :).
