It’s that time of year. The time when we re-evaluate everything about ourselves — the socks we wear, the brand of toothpaste we use, whether or not we should organize our bookshelves by author, title, or book cover color. You know what I mean.
It’s…the New Year.
So…now that you’ve overthought your life and have come to no new conclusions, I am going to force you to make a decision. If you’re reading this, you are now bound — by the contract of Blog-Readers’ Honor — to answer this question:
What book are you going to read in 2015?
Yup. I just made it hard for some of you (major book-lovers) and easy for others (non-readers.) You may list only one book. Go with the one you’re most excited about.
I, however, being the author of this blog and supreme ruler of NadineBrandesville…can list as many books as I want. Here are some books I plan on reading in 2015:
Aren’t they beautiful? (In case you were wondering…I organize my books by height.)
See how there are only twenty-four books here? It’s because I’m leaving room for the random books that fall into my path, for the free e-book that sucks me into an all-night read (curse you, sleep-depriver!), and for the non-fiction books that I like to pick up when I’m feeling a bit dry in my pursuit of God.
I’ve found it incredibly ironic how little I have time to read as an author. And yet, one of the most important ways to better myself as a writer is to read as often as possible. So this year, one of my resolutions is to read more.
With that, welcome to the New Year! Yes, I have resolutions that don’t involve books, toothpaste, or socks. But I’m going to go against the grain and post my resolutions later on in January.
So, in case you forgot what it is you were supposed to tell me…what book are you most looking forward to reading in 2015?
