TOP 5 TUESDAY (#12) : 16 January 2018

top12

Top 10 Tuesday is a weekly meme originally created at The Broke and the Bookish but is now hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl. Basically every week thereโ€™s different topic to list your own top 10, though I do them as top 5.

January 16: Bookish Resolutions/Goals

cut

1. Buy more books!
Wait a minute, buy more books?! Yeah, I really want to buy more books. Last year I bought books only 2 times, the total of 6 books. I’d like to say that we don’t have money to buy any books but that’s not the case. The thing is that I’ve always put everyone else before myself. So every ‘leftover’ money I have to spend in a month, I tend to use it for my kids, dog and hubby rather than on my own needs. So this year I really want to learn to spend some money on me and start to think about myself more. Our kids have everything they need and a little more so they won’t have to suffer, no worries ๐Ÿ˜€

2. Make more time for reading and blogging
This is another thing that I should learn: delegate some housework for the hubby. He’s just as capable to do the dishes and put laundry in the washing machine as I am! He can also entertain our kids after he’s home from work as well as I can. Right now I do it all: I clean, take care of our kids, play with them, cook etc. and while doing everything, I try multitasking and read at the same time: it’s not very efficient. So this year I try to delegate some of that for others, I don’t have to do everything by myself, right?

3. Buy proper bookshelves
I’ve been meaning to buy proper bookshelves for like 6 months already. I do have a shelf for books but they don’t fit in it and it’s also broken. So I should drag myself to IKEA and fetch some bookshelves!

4. Listen to more audiobooks
Last year I listened to four audiobooks, I think. I really enjoyed them, maybe I got lucky with the narrators. Those were an awesome way to read while putting my kids to bet, driving, cleaning etc! So this year I want to listen even more audiobooks than I did last year. Our library has great collection of those and then I’m thinking about taking audible too.

5. Start going to the library with kids as often as we did before the baby was born
Before the baby we went to the library once a week. Now it has kind of been left behind, maybe I’m just too lazy to dress up three kids and get our buggy from our basement and everything else. But now I want to get that back to our schedule and start going there again after picking up my oldest from daycare.

    • My mom seems to agree on that because she got me a gift card for ikea and told me to buy bookshelves ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™ˆ
      i honestly don’t know! Every month i was browsing BD and putting books on my cart but then i thought “oh right, i should buy this and that” and then those books stayed in the cart ๐Ÿ™ˆ but i’m already getting better at this and bought king’s cage as a gift for myself ๐Ÿ˜…

  1. These are all fantastic goals, and many of which I really, really need to do myself!! It’s *so* hard for me to get to new books — not because of time, or money (although these certainly don’t make it any easier), it just doesn’t happen. Then I can’t pick what to read, and I like to absorb myself in the universe so it takes forever, ahh.. Needless to say, I seriously need to buy more books lol. Good bookshelves are a must, too, though e-readers make them slightly less of an immediate need.
    I always forget how great audiobooks are! I hope you manage to make that last goal; so many great and unexpected finds at libraries!
    You have a beautiful blog, Hanna!

  2. These are good goals! I want to listen to more audiobooks to but I don’t know how.. I don’t have the money for audible and my library doesnt have overdrive. Good luck with yours though!
