A Little Target

I’m not going to reveal my writing goals this year like I did last year, because I missed each one of them, but I am going to let you all know that I am aiming to read twelve to fifteen books this year. So that’s about one a month, I’m currently about a hundred pages off finishing The Hunger Games (yes I started reading it last year, but im still counting it 😛 )  I would also like to knock out as many audiobooks as I can too. This is going to be a little more difficult as I do not really have the money to buy the audiobooks at the moment.  Paper books are different because I have about forty on my book shelve waiting to be read.  Audiobooks are great for me because I can listen to them while I’m at work.  So to save myself a little money I’m going to raid the books on Podiobooks.  If you love listening to fiction in audio form then I’d recommend checking their site out http://podiobooks.com/ You can also find them on iTunes.  Podiobooks basically allows writers to release thier stories in podcasts for free.  Personally I’ll only download a completed story as I like to hear it all in one go. It is a great idea and I have listen to many great writers works from there.  Scott Sigler, J.C. Hutchins, Mur Lafferty and a fair few others.  The most recent is Jeff Lane.  I listened to his story, Crush Depth, today and I really enjoyed it.  Here’s the link to his site http://jefflaneaudiobooks.com/

A few of the books I’m aiming to read this year are; The Dark Tower series by Stephen King, Dauntless by Jack Campbell.  That’s part of his The Lost Fleet series. Old Man’s War by John Scalzi.  Haywire by Justin R. Macumber, Dunne by Frank Herbert and The Man In The High Castle and Do Androids Dream Of Electronic Sheep, both by Phillip K.Dick

    • You are welcome 🙂 I’m looking forward to reading Haywire, I really enjoyed The Ties That Bind. And I think it deserves to be in this list. There are maybe another 5 or 6 books that I’m looking forward to reading but the ones I mentioned are the ones that have caught my attention the most 🙂
