Readers' Resolutions

This year I will:

  1. Reread a book I loved as a child.
  2. Finally read that classic from high school I've been avoiding.
  3. Find a book of poetry and read some aloud.
  4. Spend an hour in aimless browsing at a library.
  5. Read a book written in the year I was born.
  6. Create a journal and keep notes about the books and magazines I read.
  7. Assemble a list of addresses of my favorite people and send them my ideas about books.
  8. Read a book to a child.
  9. Gather a few friends and read a play out loud.
  10. Read a book on the history of my town.
  11. Read a book written from a political point of view totally opposite my own.
  12. Read a book about a place I've never been.
  13. Reread a book that I just didn't "get" when I was eighteen.
  14. Ask my favorite librarian to show me some print and online resources for readers.
  15. Read a book written by a non-American.
