One of my new year resolutions has been to reclaim some old good habits, one being the habit of pleasure reading. Between studying for school and being really busy with computer stuff, I haven’t really hard time or the inclination to read just for the pleasure of it. However, starting this year I plan to make the time. My book preferences have definitely changed, and I’m not as inclined to read novels and fiction as I used to be, but I have a nice little pile of books to work through.
The key here is to make the time. It may mean turning my laptop off a little earlier every evening, bringing a book to school so I can read it on the train, and generally finding other ways to make time.
I’m off to a good start, a week or so ago I finished reading my first book this year – Something for the Pain, and I’ll be talking about that soon.
