At the beginning of 2012, one of my resolutions for the year was to read a book a week. It came right down to the wire, but I made it! Here’s the complete list of what was on my list this past year.
This year I made 12 resolutions for 2012. And one of them was to read a book per week. (Yes, I like lists!)
When I was younger, I loved to read. Going to the bookstore was a treat for me and it wasn’t unusual for me to go through multiple books in a single day! These days, I find myself getting busier and busier and my attention span getting shorter and shorter. When I traveled in 2008 and I was able to slow down a bit, rather than rushing everywhere with so many things to do each day, I found myself getting back to my love for books. Last year, I bought myself a Kindle, which I adore and keep with me at all times in case I’ve got a moment to break into my latest read. So this year I wanted to challenge myself to read more, and I felt like a book a week is a realistic goal. So far I’m right on track.
