I wish we could solve all the world’s problems by reading, but sadly, this is not possible. However, some issues in life can be solved with a simple “read-solution.” In 2013, I read-solve to:
1. Enjoy more picture books
Sure, as a librarian working in Youth Services, it’s fair to say that I read more picture books than the average adult, but I rarely seek them out. Some picture book are fantastic, compact stories, others are to be appreciated for their illustrations, but most of them are delightful in some way. I will definitely make a better effort this year to read more of these literary gems.
2. Carry a book with me
I usually do this, but I have found myself in a few situations lately where I have 20 minutes to kill and my book is tucked away at home. Snuggling up with a book is a great way to spend an afternoon, but I also want to make more of time during the day to finish a chapter or two.
3. Listen to more audiobooks
This past year, I discovered the joys of audiobooks, and plan to listen to more of them in the car and while cleaning the house. I’m looking forward to the final book in Lauren Oliver’s Delirium trilogy, titled Requiem. I listened to the first two and can’t wait to hear Sarah Drew tell me the last part of Lena’s adventure.
What are your read-solutions for 2013?
