2017 Reading Goals

by nomeatbarefeet

My reading goals from 2016 consisted of criteria that I wanted to fulfill (e.g., read 2 Lation authors). The reading goals I have set out for 2017 are somewhat more precise in that I have certain books or series of books in mind; but I also have a few genres that i’d like to delve into (e.g., biography, activist literature).

**When I finish a book I will cross it out.**

Colson Whitehead, Underground Railroad


Hang Kang, The Vegetarian


Colin Meloy, The Wildwood Chronicles


*Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Dear Ijeawele, Or a Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions (I added this book because it was given to me.)

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, We Should All Be Feminists


João Gilberto Noll, Quiet Creature on the Corner


Albert Camus, The Stranger


Marjane Satrapi, Persepolis (Parts 1 and 2)



Margret Atwood, The Handmaid’s Tale


Finally, I’d like to read:

  • an activist book
  • a biography
  • someone else’s favorite book

Well there you have it. My Reading Goals for 2017. Ambitious. Diverse. Interesting. Complex. Thought provoking. Now let’s see if I can fit all this in while being back in the classroom teaching.

What you are reading in 2017? Do you have any goals for your reading or do you just pick up books at random? Let me a comment and let me know!
