New year, newish goals, new books!

I considered not setting any reading goals for the year but when I was going over my reading log for last year, I saw soooo many DNFs and re-reads. I have no problem with either ditching a book that I don't love (and sometimes I come back to them at another time and like them), or with going back to a book I loved to read it again. However, I'm just in a bit of a rut. I also didn't read as much as I usually do for a couple of months last year- November was basically a blank because I had covid, and then in December I had terrible insomnia and just felt awful.

I don't think of reading as a chore, and I rarely set goals with numbers of books or numbers of pages read, but I do want to read more books. I read so many reviews and they sound so great. There are so many books that have been on my list for my whole adult life, and I really do want to read them.

So, I'm not going to say no to DNFs or re-reads, but I am going to try to re-read just a little less. To not go back to books that I've read more times than I can keep up with. Maybe I can get through a year without LOTR and every one of Jane Austen's books. Just so I can have more time to read books that are new, or new to me.

I don't know of any new books coming out this year that I'm particularly looking forward to, but I've gone over my TBR list on storygraph a few times recently, and the tags I've set on Libby, and there's enough there to keep me busy for a long time.
