Top 10 Tuesday - Blogging / Bookish Resolutions

“Top 10 Tuesday” is back and better than ever, however, we should point out that the recent acquisition of Netflix has prevented us from fully preparing for this monumental day.   Admittedly, we probably should have started this post by highlighting the mere fact that “Top 10 Tuesday” is back and slightly lacking, but it’s too late for that now.  We would also like to draw attention to the fact that “Top 10 Tuesday” was actually never gone, although our busy schedule over the past two weeks has hindered our participation.   Now we’re rambling... This is just embarrassing...

Head on over to The Broke and the Bookish to join the fun!

The question: What are your Top 10 Bookish/Blogging Resolutions?

The list:

  1. Review at least 86.42% of the books we read – While the percentage is pretty much a shot in the dark, it seems reasonable to us.  It also seems higher than our current average; however our research department is too underfunded to know for sure.  2011 will be the year of the stat.  
  2. Complete the 100+ reading challenge – We (Evan) have never tracked the number of books we’ve (Evan) read.   We (Evan) are very interested to see if we (Evan) can read 100+ books in one year.
  3. Host / Participate in at least 1 read-alongs.  Our first experience in this arena was quite enjoyable!  We hope to replicate the genial feeling at least once in 2011.
  4. Ensure our blog does not run our lives – Okay, so this might contradict our previous ambitious resolutions, but putting boundaries on our blog is very important.  We (especially one of us) must remember that some time must be allocated to eating, sleeping and of course, raising two children. 

There you have it – “Top 4 Tuesday” is in the books.  We can only hope to do better next time.  Maybe we should have added this last thought as our final resolution...


  1. here's mine http://tributebooksmama.blogspot.com/2011/01/top-ten-tuesday-top-10-bookish.html

  2. Great list. If you host a readalong, I'll try to participate! Especially if it's a daunting book.

  3. You should definitely host a Read-a-Long!!!

  4. I have only been blogging for a week now, and I can already see that #4 is really important! Good luck keeping everything in balance and completing those challenges.

  5. I love the idea of a read-a-long. I participated in one in 2010 but it sort of fizzled out after the first check in. I'd love to do another one if you host one :)

  6. Haha. 86.42% is definitely a good number to stick to.

  7. Oh, I like 3 and 4! I plan to try a challenge or readalong too.

    Looks like a fun blog-- I'll be back!
