New Year Resolutions

Made to be broken, the stuff of underachievement but still we make them. There is one I can make which I think I can achieve – read more books!

I searched our catalogue for the keyword resolutions and this jumped out at me – The happiness project. Hmmm I might resolve to read it.

Are you making resolutions? Is 2011 going to be the year you read War and Peace, Proust or the collected work of Jane Austen?

Last year librarians set themselves some reading challenges that took them out of their comfort zone – Christian fiction and cyberpunk for example.

What challenges have you got in mind this coming year?

    And for those of you who can’t think of any resolutions for yourselves, keep an eye on this blog for news about the upcoming “Bride of 5-Book-Challenge”, a new and advanced ‘extra for experts’ kind of a deal …

    I’m going to learn how to play the ukulele I received for Christmas! I’ve already got a couple of books to get me started. =)

    Rendered commonplace before I even embark on my 2011 resolution of finally finishing Proust. Should I give up before the New Year even starts? I’ve only got four (actually I think it’s five) books to go. Perhaps I should resolve to visit Paris and view his overcoat. I could swing by his grave while I’m there.

    Based on my holiday reading picks – reject lame writing – do not proceed if the opening pages do not engage you BUT embrace fine writing and read as long as possible without interruption.
    Holiday reading pick so far – Steve Braunias – How to watch a bird. This has been on my to read for a long time and it was worth it.

    Thanks! I’ll place a hold on this book. It looks interesting. I think I have the most unusual New Years Resolution: To become ambidextrous again (I was as a child).
