Well, you’re reading one right now: starting this blog was a New Year’s project for me!
What do I want my year of reading to be like? Most of all, I want to challenge myself, not just by signing up for challenges (though that will play a big part), but by pushing myself to read a substantial amount of books I’ve never read before or always wanted to read. I want to be able to check off some titles on the list I’ve been carrying around in my head, but also, I want to push my boundaries, read more in genres I often skip out of habit (YA lit, mysteries) or in areas where my reading has been very shallow (GLBT lit). I want to find the same comfort and escape that I’ve always found in reading, but I also want to feel inspired by new and classic perspectives.
