Reading Map: August 2015

It’s the beginning of the month and time to plan out my reading. I do this with a ‘Reading Map’. This is like a road map of my reading journey. Each month I do a ‘check-up’ to help me see what I’ve accomplished towards my reading goals and to help me see what needs to be done next.

I like to start with a look at what I’ve done since the last map.

What I’ve read in July.

What I’m currently reading.

What I chose not to read at this time.

I don’t feel too badly about not reading these. If I don’t have a review commitment I use my list as a guideline only and I don’t feel guilty if something else catches my eye. Last month at book fair I found a book about writing down your family history, and had a similar one come in from the reserve list at the library, so I have been making my way through those. Also, I misread my bookclub list and 1984 isn’t even on the list until October, so no reason to rush that one. I did read this month’s book selection, though, Whistling In The Dark.

Now it’s time to take a look at my reading map for August.

August 2015 Reading Map

One is a reread for book club and three are for book tour reviews. I am also participating in Doing Dewey’s online Nonfiction Book Club. I leave myself open to picking up a different book if  the mood strikes me, so i may well not get to all of these, but at least I have a plan!

Do you have a ‘map’ to help guide your reading? If so, share it below in the comments. Maybe I’ll see something I want to add to my list! Happy reading!
