Haha - reading plans for a whole year, when I can't stay on track for more than a book, maybe two before getting my head turned by something else. Oh well..
1. Finish an intended TBR Mountain reading challenge that's been on the sidebar since 2014
2. Ditto a USA State reading challenge. I've probably read more than half the states in the country but am too idle to keep things up to date. I would like to finish it in 2019.
3. Complete a Canadian reading challenge that I started with the best of intentions earlier this year.
4. Catch up with my wife and son - I'm a list of books behind on the sidebar.
5. Ditto - an author catch up list.... Charlie Stella, Anthony Neil Smith, Michael Connelly to mention a few
6. Try and complete several book series I started running through some years ago, at a pace of one a month before getting distracted - Matt Scudder by Lawrence Block, Travis McGee by John D. MacDonald, Elvis Cole by Robert Crais, Quarry by Max Allan Collins and Nameless by Bill Pronzini.
7. Do the Aussie Author Challenge over at Booklover Book Reviews site
8. Participate in the 2019 European Reading Challenge run by Rose City Reader, aiming for at least 12 countries in the year.
9. More blog related than reading - finish cataloguing my books - the physical ones at least. I've taken a two year breather since logging TUB EIGHTY-FIVE in October 2016. I think there's about another 14 to go!

I might try and log the books on the kindle as well for a sense of completism. Plus I have another programme that stores books on the laptop.
10. Try and keep on top of any freebies/review copies that might come my way.
11. Stop browsing Net Galley and Edelweiss early reviewer sites. The world won't end if I don't get my hands on every new crime fiction book published!
12. Stop buying books
13. Stop buying books
14. Stop buying books
15. Try and catch up on the TV and Film backlog listed.
16. Oh and lose some weight you porky git.
17. 120 yearly reading target as per usual
18. Read more female authors than in 2018
