Today's Monday Discussion is becoming an annual event. I want to know what your reading related New Year's resolution are. Come on, I know you made some resolutions. For example, one of my non-reading related resolutions is to get my photos of the kids organized better.
On the reading front though, I know I have a lot to work on; and if I have a lot to work on, you must too. Here are three of my reading resolutions for 2012:
- I did not actually read a romance from cover to cover last year. I speed read a few, but actually read...no, that didn't happen. Even worse, the romances I speed read were by authors I already knew about. Shame on me. But in my defense, I was finishing a book for the first half of the year and then catching up on everything in my life for the second half. So in 2012, I resolve to read the works of at least 2 new (to me) romance authors AND review them here on RA for All. That should be interesting and entertaining.
- I got very lazy about posting my reviews this year, and as a result, did not review every book I read and spent the entire month of December frantically trying to get the most important books written up. So in 2012, while I may not be able to review every book I read, I will be better about keeping up with the ones I am choosing to post about.
- I will try to delve further into the backlist on a more regular basis this year. I had such a great experience finally getting to The Known World this year that it reminded me of all of the great books I have missed. I am going to resolve to seek out 4-6 titles from more than 5 years ago in 2012.
Now is your chance to proclaim your reading resolutions.
