    in 2021 I set a quantitative goal of 52 and was able to pass it but for 2022 it's more qualitative and as long as I get to like 30+ I'll be happy

    want to read more non-fiction and write my thoughts and takeaways from each book after I finish it

    fiction wise, last year I was reading more contemporary fiction but this year I want to read more of the classics and more challenging work in general

    already got a pretty good reading list I'm excited to read through

    how bout y'all? we can check up on this thread as the year goes on to hold each other accountable too

    I made a goal for 20 books for 2022 and I expect to pass that.

    more importantly, I want to start taking notes while reading, like doing little sticky notes markers for memorable quotes or ideas that I want to come back to.

    Also want to throw some more nonfiction into the mix, don't know what yet but i didn't read any nonfiction this year so I want to change that.

    Taking notes is a great thing to do imo. I do it and then summarize the notes in a Word-doc when I finish the book. Do it for every book you read.

    Also great idea OP. My plan for every year is at least one book every month (12 in a year). Hopefully I can read more than that in 2022

    nice, always good to set reachable goals

    one thing that helped me read a lot was having a long list of what I want to read so I'm always excited about what's next. that way when I finish one, the next day I already have another to start

    one thing I realized as I got back into reading this year is that there would be so many great passages in the books I read but once I was done with the book, i'd have a hard time remembering where the passage was and what it was about so to counteract that it's about that time to be a more active reader so what I read actually sticks with me past the duration of the book.

    e-readers are GOAT for that

    long video, but I'm trying to do what this guy does when it comes to note-taking on non-fiction books

    it's a bit technical and extreme but I started using his Notion template and hopefully it'll be useful to have my summaries, quotes, takeaways, and notes all organized like that
