I have only one resolution for the new year : Try to read things that are worth reading. (That means less tv and less surfing, but so far it has been a sort of time creator.)
I was talking with an old friend recently, when he remarked that he’s read 62 books in the past year. Seriously? I think I read four. So that’s the plan. The score so far for 2012 : “The Bean Trees” by Barbara Kingsolver and “The Book of Tea” by Kakuzo Okakura. Started in 2011, I know, but finished in 2012. So only 60 to go 😉
There are a number of places to find lists of books to read, so I’ll be combing through those. Next up : “Pigs in Heaven” (sequel to the Kingsolver book above), The Kama Sutra, and something by Dickens.
