I blogged about reading resolutions this past Sunday. But I'll bring up a few more things here.
Happy New Year, everyone!
So … any Reading Resolutions? Say, specific books you plan to read? A plan to read more ____? Anything at all?
Name me at least ONE thing you’re looking forward to reading this year!
My reading resolution isn't so much what to read as to when to read. I'm going to *try* to read my review copies in a more timely manner--trying to get to them before they publish and making mention on the blog the week/month that they're published. I can't promise you can teach me a new trick. But I'm going to try my best. If I fail, then I fail. And I'll keep on trying until I make some headway. I'm not perfect, I'll never be perfect. And I am human. Very human. So don't expect me to be perfect on this or any other resolution.
I am going to try to not let challenges control me. Challenges come and go. And there are more important things than joining each and every one and pushing, pushing, pushing yourself to finish each one you sign up for. It's fine if it doesn't start running you, but it can get out of hand if you let it.
I do want more balance in my reading life.
Right now I am reading Don Quixote. This has been a goal of mine for a while. (It's on several challenge lists for one thing.) And I wanted to start the year off with it.
