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!
Reading resolutions, if too specific, can be indicators of failure at year’s end rather than a celebration of all you did read, of all the unexpected paths you turned down just flying by the seat of your pants. So…my very general resolutions include reading much more nonfiction (do photography books count?), and much, much more in translation. I feel as if a whole new world has opened up for my reading life in researching for the reading challenge I am hosting, Lost in Translation, and I cannot wait to see where I land. And the ONE thing I am looking forward to reading? The next book of course. Just finished Olive Kitteridge, and have my eye on The Elegance of the Hedgehog at this very moment. Happy New Year everyone!
