As I wrote last year on my blog, I am not big on New Year's resolutions. I usually refuse to make them. I'm trying something a little different this year. I'm still not calling them 'resolutions', because I hate the term, but I have decided to focus my attention on achieving some goals in certain areas of my life. I'm not sure what all the goals will be - I'm going to percolate on the idea until Jan 7th - but there is one goal I have already chosen.
I am going to read 45 books, minimum, this year. All the books will be ones I currently own and haven't read. There are 25 novels, 5 bios, 5 classics, and 10 non fiction books on the list. The original plan was 40, but I can't count and inadvertently put 25 books in the 'fiction' list. If I'd been smart and done the 'classics' and the fiction at the same time, I would have caught the error, but whatever. Some of the non fiction books are under 200 pages, so it'll even out.
