The Better Reading Team’s 2020 Reading Resolutions

The Better Reading Team’s 2020 Reading Resolutions

A new year, a new publishing schedule… and world of possibilities. January can be an exciting time for many bookworms. You might decide to challenge yourself more and read more literary fiction or some of the classics. Maybe you plan to read more widely, from different genres. Many of you will be setting your Goodreads or similar reading challenges.

Here are some of our Reading Resolutions for 2020.

Cheryl Akle – Director

I feel extremely blessed to read so much and so widely for work. In 2020 my main focus will be to read as many titles as possible on the Top 100. I’m often contacted by readers who count titles, and set themselves a reading challenge each year. Well this year I’m joining them and doing the Top 100 Reading Challenge myself.

Melissa Wilson – Head of Marketing and Children’s Content

I lost count of the children’s books I read for work. Last year, I also tried to stay on top of adult titles that were being publishing, so found my TBR pile a constant mountain I was struggling to climb. I love books and reading so much, that I never want to feel overwhelmed by that, so this year I’m going to be more selective with the adult titles I choose to read. There will still be a lot of adult titles, but not the ones I think I should read, just the ones I really want to read.

 Jane Tara – Lifestyle Editor

While we do some non-fiction at Better Reading, the main focus is fiction. I love non-fiction too. I’ve always been a big reader of history, memoirs, travel and personal development/health. Reading so many novels for work leaves me little time to read the many fabulous non-fiction titles that are released, so this year I’m fully embracing the audio book and keeping the focus there on non-fiction. I’ve used Bolinda and Audible for some time now, but in 2020 all car trips, walking the dog and gym time will also be catch up time with my non-fiction titles.

Bec Howard – Marketing Coordinator

I have a dream job for a reader, but if there is one resolution for 2020 it’s to really stay up-to-date reading the great YA titles that come out. YA is my favourite genre and I grab a lot of those a work, but I will also aim to read more on weekends.
