This year I'm not doing any reading challenges, but I was intrigued by Neil Hollands' blog about his New Year's reading resolutions. They include:
1. Finding the time to read for more than an hour instead of stealing a couple minutes here and there.
2. Continue reading across the fiction section of his library. (This sounds incredibly ambitious!)
3. Re-read the classics
4. Discover new writers
5. Finish some book series
You can read his full blog entry here.
I particularly like his goal to find at least an hour to read. I have noticed in the past year that I can't get involved in a story if I limit myself a chapter here or 10 minutes there. I want to be fully immersed, but that can only happen if I find an hour or two to read the book.
I'm hesitant to make any reading resolution or goal. They don't go well for me. However, there are some changes I want to make in my reading habits. Reading isn't a part of my daily schedule and I would love to dedicate a block of time each day to read.
So for 2011, I have a reading resolution: I will make reading for pleasure a priority.
What about you? Are you participating in a reading challenge or do you have a reading resolution?
