My Goals
time spent reading: I am going with the same goal as the last time I tried this: I want to try and make it for the whole 24 hours (which I have never done), but that includes taking breaks here and there and some short naps. If I get too sleepy I am fine with throwing in the towel and not trying to force it though. 

books:
I am working with a mix of rereads and new to me books. I know that if I have too much to choose from I will never settle on something so I narrowed down the choices to eight which I have done in the past and that has worked out well. I will use Saga to break up the day a little. I will also Listen to The Ocean at the End of the Lane or 1984 when cooking or knitting or when my eyes just need a break. I want to finish three things from the list but my main goal is to enjoy reading at my normal pace  and not try to race through anything just so I can put it in the done pile.  

other:
 Take a picture every hour, complete eight mini challenges, and spend at least an hour outside walking. I also always end up bailing updating on here so a goal this year is to actually track everything.
