I'm ashamed to say that I've known a bunch of m/m authors for almost a year now but I haven't read a single work by most of them. I feel that's something I should change this year, so here are my reading goals for 2012:
-- Read two books a month by an author I'm personally familiar with / friends with.
-- Read at least one book a month by an author I haven't read before (doesn't have to be someone I know).
-- Read 60 books this year (slow reader! I like to sink into the books and read them at leisure).
That's three books a month. Then, of course, I can read whatever else I want once I've finished those three. I start by chopping down what I already have on my Kindle, then I'll start buying more. Since January has already passed I'll read 4 and 2:
It's just embarrassing talking to these authors when I haven't read their work! I'll make a status report by the end of the month so you can kick my bum if I've been slacking.
