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 ūüėõ )¬† 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
