Reading less or slower seems to be a popular goal for 2018. (It is one of mine, too...) There are several titles on your list that look fab - The History of Love, Birnam Wood, The Sky Unwashed, ... too many to list... and I am looking forward to reading your thoughts on all of them.

I'm not really one for goals. I don't like limitations or anything that causes my reading to be stressful. However, I do like a good topical project. I wouldn't dedicate a whole year to it, but would create a small list of books that deal with a particular topic and try and complete that - amongst other reads, of course.

Happy Reading!

Thanks. I'm already finding out that reading slower isn't as easy as I initially thought it would be. I'll find myself at the end of a page asking myself, did you really savor that page? No. Go back and read it again.

My reading goals the last few years, and going forward, all center on only reading from, and reducing, my physical TBR pile. I've been successful at the first part; unfortunately I tend to add new books to the pile faster than I read from it. So this year, I'm attempting to tie my book buying into my book reading: read 2, buy 1. We'll see how that goes. I'm not known for restraint when it comes to books.

Best of reading in 2018!

The number of books I own that I haven't read is ridiculous. I'd guess some 90-95% of them are unread. Every year I say I need to read more from that selection, but working at a library often makes that difficult. At least I'm not adding to my collection... much. Book buying restraint is overrated.
