I would like to draw attention to the letter ‘L’.
At this time of new resolutions which may or may not fail, let’s all resolve to read more, read better, read deeper, read differently than we have been.
I toyed with the idea of enjoining some reading challenges on myself, but I think I’ll just stick with the literary world tour (which I need to talk about, soon) and read what strikes my fancy. What I am challenging myself to do is write more. The whole reason I started this blog was to make myself a better reader. I’ve always read a lot, but I wanted to force myself to slow down and digest the books I’ve read, and to spend more time in reflection. I’ve failed tremendously.
So there’s my resolution: More writing about books and, thereby, become a better reader. How about you?
