I make resolutions every year. My focus this year, as it has been for the past several years, is on Happiness. To that end, I have made this reminder chart (thank you, Andrew Weil and Spontaneous Happiness):
Here are my Reading Resolutions for 2012:
1. Read good books slowly. Keep a sticky and pencil nearby as I read these good books. Note great quotes. Note great ideas. Note great new words.
2. Read so-so books quickly. Skimming is okay for these books and these books still count as books read. A two sentence review is perfectly acceptable.
And that's it.
No big resolutions to read War and Peace this year or to read and review 365 books this year or to read all the 1001 Children's Books You Must Read Before You Grow Up this year. No attempts to read strictly from my enormous TBR. No vows to refrain from purchasing new books. Just these two little resolutions for me.
How about you? What are your Reading Resolutions for 2012? Do you have a list of books you want to read this year? How about challenges? What about your TBR? What do you hope to accomplish in 2012?
P.S. Here's my list of Top Ten Reads of 2011!
