I’ve always been super into reading, ever since my parents first taught me. I’ve always been known as the one who’s always reading, who brings a book everywhere, and is the person to ask if you’re looking for a good recommendation. But I was never serious about my reading until the second half of this year, really.
That’s when I realized that I could really be reading so many more books each month than I normally had been, and that there were tons of other people out there reading hundreds of books each year! So I started reading more. And then a little more. And then a little more. And now I consistently read somewhere between 15-20 books each month, and I’m really proud of that!
But I want to do even more in 2014 than I did in this past year…so I’m going to set some awesome New Year’s Bookish Resolutions!
This can be a physical copy or an ebook (not an ARC), but I just need to really start reading from my personal TBR pile, because it’s starting to get a little bit insane…as in I have an entire TBR bookcase, and there’s still a ton spilling over onto piles on the floor/on my desk/basically everywhere.
This is something that I’ve been kind of doing in general, but I want to make it a rule, so that I keep on doing it every month. I really want to work on my NetGalley ratio.
Until recently (the past two years or so?), I was totally not into non-fiction. But then I discovered that nonfiction doesn’t have to mean boring! There have been a bunch that I’ve read and loved, but I haven’t been reading this genre consistently, and I want to start, because there are so many good ones that I really want to get to!
It’s no secret that I love cooking. But I rarely ever read cookbooks and I’m always looking for more ideas to create my own recipes for myself and my boyfriend. I’m really excited about this particular resolution!
The only bookish event I’ve ever been to was a Jodi Picoult book reading/signing that I went to in high school. I loved it so much, but I’ve never been to another one. Mostly because there are seriously no events like this in Rhode Island, where I live. But I’m really hoping to go to BEA this year, so maybe I’ll be able to cross this one off my list!
What are some of your bookish resolutions?
