It’s scary how December is here already! It seems like 2013 may be the fastest year ever. One minute it was January and I was rolling out my resolutions and now it’s December and I’m not halfway done with my list. What is that about?
I figured that I should share my December goals in hopes of being bullied motivated in keeping them. I need all the help I can get.
1. Finish reading the last stack of solicited review copies. There are only 10 books left so that should be do-able. Next year, I plan on reading only my own books and those from the library.
2. Post 2014 sign-ups for the Chunkster Challenge blog. I will be taking over the challenge from Wendy next year.
3. Post more regularly. This year has been so busy that I haven’t been able to blog that much. If I can post at least three times a week, I’m happy.
That’s my list, short but simple.
Thanksgiving break has come to an end and I didn’t read as much as I wanted to. I was too busy fighting a cold. Currently I’m reading Ann Patchett’s essay collection, This is The Story of a Happy Marriage. The title story is so beautiful, so honest that I read the whole thing aloud. This is my first time reading something by the author. I tried and fail to get through more than a few pages of Bel Canto. Sometimes reading an author’s non-fiction work is a better experience than reading their fiction.
I’m still dipping in and out of Why Teach? by Mark Edmundson. Essay and short story collections are the only works where readers can weave in and out of as time allows. It’s perfect for me during this hectic season.
What are you reading/watching/listening to this week?
