Imaginative title, eh?
Unlike yesterday, I actually have a few things I want to talk about today. I went shopping today – omigod present money is fantastic – and I wanted to show what I got, but I figured I’d wait till I had decent lighting tomorrow for my oh so professional iPhone photos. Uh huh. Hardcore, I know.
So, instead I’ll tell you about my second New Year’s resolution.
Reading. 36 books over the next 12 months, to be exact.
Why 36? Well, I was going to make it three per month, but I figured that I didn’t want to fail just because I’d read two one month and four the next. So 36 it is.
I used to be the world’s biggest bookworm. Seriously. I would get busted regularly for hiding a book under my desk during class in elementary school.
Such a rebel.
While my rebellious nature began to manifest itself in different ways during high school, I still read a lot. I remember seeing that in my grade 10 English class we would get bonus marks for reading 3 books a term and I was so psyched.
Three books, I thought? I read more than that in a month.
But then university happened. And textbooks. I mean, I had them in high school too, but we never had to read as much as I’ve had to in university.
Basically, it got to the point that I didn’t read a single book during fall semester.
Resolution #2: Read 36 books in 2012.
I’m on a decent start, considering I’ve read two books in the past two days. But they were short books and it’s early yet, so we’ll see.
The next book will be “The Five People You Meet In Heaven,” because I’ve heard so much about and I figure I’ll give it a shot.
As soon as my eReader is done charging, anyways.
