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!
Well, Happy New Year right back atcha, Deb (and everyone else!!).
Reading Resolutions … hmm … I’m not a resolution maker per se, the word sounds too formal and inflexible to me! I prefer to talk about establishing better habits or changing my approach to something … fine-tuning the way I do things (I know it’s all semantics, but the words I choose really impact my attitude about things!).
I’ve joined a number of reading challenges this year; while I do hope to complete them all, I’m taking them with a spirit of fun, no-pressure, let’s-see-where-this-goes. I’m hosting a LibraryThing Author Challenge, and I hope the participants in this challenge have fun with it, too!
I’ve loved discovering new authors in 2008 (both new-to-me and debut novelists). I’m looking forward to more of the same in 2009, but I’d also like to read wider across an author’s body of work. For example, I read David Ebershoff’s The 19th Wife last year, and plan to read his earlier novels, Pasadena and The Danish Girl this year.
Is there one specific book on your must-read list for 2009?
