It’s the time of year that many resolve to tighten their waistlines or fatten up their wallets. Here at the library we’re thinking about reading resolutions. Here are some we’ve heard and some you may want to consider There are many to consider:
- Vow to read for a set amount of time each day
- Set a goal number of books to read for the year such as 12 or 52
- Get serious about something: study poetry, a classic author or nonfiction title
- Challenge yourself: tackle translated works, or emotionally and intellectually challenging works
- Make it through your reading wish list or at least vow to stop adding two books for each one you’ve read
- Get organized ~ get those books out of piles and onto shelves OR donate those excess volumes to the Houston County Friends of the Library Annual Book Sale
- Finally learn how to use that kindle, nook or other gadget to get those books for free from the library
Another common resolution is to start a blog to chronicle these resolution efforts. If this happens to be one of your resolutions, let us be a part of it!Leave a link in our comment section.
