168 buckaroos have listed 'Get Back Into Reading' as one of their life goals:

I've become a fall-asleep reader! One day, I wasn't reading books anymore! I still read them, but I skimmed them and only read the parts I liked and skipped fast from book to book! My goal with this is to get back into reading for real one day -- reading a book from start to finish. I still reserve the right to read multiple books at a time, though! And in the meantime, I'll keep skipping! I'll probably go back to it when I'm done, too!


I love learning languages and have been fluent in four for a while! Now that I'm learning Greek and Italian, I wanted to see if I can reach the life goal of knowing at least eight! I know English, Portuguese, Spanish, and French. Any suggestions for other two? Lol!


I've been talking about becoming a writer as a secondary job so that I can always have something I'm talented at to fall back on. I'd like to complete that goal in the next ten years or so.

I've never been a huge reader, but I want to get into it!


Starting- Sept 11/17 ***************** Scrappy Little Nobody- Anna Kendrick Growing up Duggar- Duggar girls Brand new me - Charlotte Crosby


I have so many books, I want to feel official in putting them in an actual bookshelf life they show in movies, books, and how people talk about just relaxing in some couch and reading and I want that. By the window, or something.


i like to talk and share idea's. but i would like to communicate my idea's to more than one group


All I want is to finish My novel and see it on the shelves of a major bookstore like Barnes & Noble or BAM


I want to enrich my knowledge by reading a lot and gaining more new perspectives


As a child living in a rural area, reading was one of my main entertainments and helped in my education. I carried the love of reading into my adulthood. Children and adults in my area struggle with literacy; thus I wanted to make sure children and adults had easy access to books. This is to pass down my love to reading to others in an area of poverty and rural isolation.
