Helen’s 2014 Resolutions

 

Almost a month ago, I received an email from Tamara asking if I would like to take part in her New Year’s Resolution feature.  All I needed to do was put together a post with some of my own resolutions, bookish or non-bookish, and send it back to her by December 30th.

It’s now Christmas Eve and I’m just trying to come up with something.  I figured that the best approach, and my usual one, was to just type and see what ends up on the page.

I don’t usually make New Year’s Resolutions, I feel that they are just there to be broken.  If I do come up with one or two, it is always with good intentions.  I go into the New Year all gung ho thinking, hoping, that this year will be different, this year will be the one where I manage to see my resolutions through to the end.  And it always ends the same way…by Spring I have completely forgotten about them.

Some of the New Year’s Resolutions that I have made in the past are the usual suspects…eat healthier, lose weight, save more money, etc.  Since I always break these – I love food that is bad for you, I lose weight but put it back on, and well money is there to be spent – I thought that I would share some bookish resolutions.

So for 2014 I resolve to:

  • Read at least 60 books (I managed 62 for 2013)
  • Read more non-fiction (I only read 2 in 2013)
  • Continue to discover new-to-me authors (I read books by 45 different authors in 2013, 37 of them new to me!)
  • Get back into sharing my thoughts and opinions on the books I read (I’ve let this slip in the last couple of months)
  • Read the books I have unread before adding more to my TBR (I was going to share the number but it’s a little embarrassing, let’s just say that it is more than I thought)
  • Stick to my blogging manifesto (I’ve been doing well with this since posting before Thanksgiving)

Thanks for reading, I’d love some encouragement as the year goes by!
