Wow this is a challenge I need! I’ve tried to cut back on book buying, but still way too often I find that things I buy get left on my shelf too long. I’m aiming for Maximising Returns (61-80%).
My NetGalley ratio has got a LOT better (it currently stands at 72%) but I’d like to keep working on it. I don’t actually know how many titles I have unread from NetGalley/Edelweiss at the moment, and I’m trying to keep my requesting low, so I’m setting my goal at Bronze Level (10 books) but hoping to increase it throughout the year.
In 2016 I got into manga and graphic novels for the first time, and I’d like to keep reading them this year, to stoke that new interest rather than let it fall by the wayside! I’m starting with the Modern Age Level (12 books) to keep it low-pressure, but I may increase it throughout the year depending on how it goes.
