Mid-Year Reading Goals Check-in

As we approach the midpoint of the year, it’s the perfect time to assess and recalibrate our reading goals and habits.  Whether you’re on track or need a bit of a reset, this guide will provide helpful tips and strategies to reinvigorate your reading life and ensure that you’re aligning with your aspirations.  Let’s make the most of the rest of the year together!

Evaluate Your Current Reading Life

Begin by asking yourself some essential questions about your current reading habits and progress toward your goals.  Are you on track?  Have things changed so much that you need to adjust or reset your goals?  Reflect on the types of books you’ve been reading and whether you’re enjoying them.  Take the time to genuinely assess your reading life and determine if it’s time for a change.

Reset, Adjust or Make New Reading Goals

After reflecting on your reading life, decide if you need to reset, adjust, or create new reading goals.  This may involve changing up your reading routine, finding a reading buddy or book club, or decluttering your bookshelves.  Be specific about what you want to achieve and by when, and consider whether you prefer open-ended goals that offer more flexibility.

Create a Plan to Achieve Your Reading Goals

Once you’ve established your goals, develop a plan of action to achieve them.  Consider where you will find the books you need and how you will adjust your life to meet your goals.  Break down your goals into smaller, manageable pieces and create a timeline for yourself.  Remember, it’s essential to create a plan that works best for you.

Keep Track of Your Reading Progress

Regardless of your chosen method, it’s vital to keep track of your progress toward your reading goals.  This can be done through a reading journal, a reading tracker app, or simply writing down the books you read each month in a notebook.  Tracking your progress helps keep you accountable and allows you to see how well you’re meeting your goals.

Enjoy the Process

Above all, reading should be enjoyable.  Don’t put too much pressure on yourself to achieve your reading goals overnight.  Instead, find what works for you and take pleasure in the process.  If reading starts to feel like a chore, take a break or adjust your goals.  Try reading with friends, joining a book club, or exploring new genres to keep things fresh and exciting.


In conclusion, a mid-year check-in is an excellent opportunity to assess your reading life and make any necessary adjustments.  By following these steps, you’ll be well on your way to a rejuvenated reading journey that aligns with your goals and passions.  Happy reading!
