New Year’s Resolutions for Readers!

Posted by Editor on January 15, 2009

I KNOW not all librarians love to read as much as I  do, but what can I say, I AM a bit of a dork!  I discovered this list on a blog and since I enjoyed it, I thought you might, too. It is from Shelf Talk: The Seattle Public Library Blog via Dusty Shelves, the U Wyoming library blog. Enjoy!

1. I will reread a book I loved as a child.

2. I will finally read that classic from high school that I’ve been avoiding.

3. I’ll find a book of poetry and read some aloud.

4. I’ll spend an hour in aimless browsing at a library.

5. I’ll read a book written in the year I was born.

6. I’ll create a journal and keep notes about the books and magazines I read.

7. I will assemble a list of my favorite people and send them my ideas about books -favorites, recent reads, and the like.

8. I will read a book to a child.

9. I will gather a few friends and read a play out loud.

10. I will read a book on the history of my town.

11. I will read a book written from a political point of view totally opposite my own.

12. I’ll read a book about a place I’ve never been.

13. I will reread a book that I just “didn’t get” when I was eighteen.

14. I will read a book written by a non-American.

15. I will ask a librarian to show me some print and online resources for readers.

These, I may just be able to keep! Do you have such a list?
