I’m not one to make New Year’s resolutions. Usually I just set reasonable goals throughout the year and follow through with those. With that being said, I see no reason why I should not at least try and come up with ten bookish goals (as hosted by the Broke and the Bookish) for 2013. If life gets in the way, I expect no one (save me) will know I didn’t accomplish the following (in no particular order):
10. Read more translated fiction. Starting with The Dinner and The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared…
9. Interact more with the online bookish community (this is something I’m terrible at, of course it would help if I signed up for book challenges and such – but that level of commitment typically scares me).
8. Participate in The Shining read-along (and really participate, coming this February).
6. Be less judgmental of movies/television that have been adapted from fiction (ahem, True Blood). That sort of negativity can’t be healthy. Not everything can be as good as the 2006 Masterpiece Theater Jane Eyre.
5. Listen to the radio drama Neverwhere on BBC iPlayer. Has there ever been a more perfect cast? No.
4. Continue with The Stephen King Project.
3. I would like to get to London this year and visit the British Library (I’m thinking maybe September?).
2. Finish watching the Swedish version of The Millennium Trilogy.
1. Read everyone else’s list and realize how many good ideas I forgot to include. There’ll be plenty and then my to-do list will never actually be completed.
