This year, I’m keeping my reading goal simple.
The right book in the right place at the right time. Always.
I need to remind myself that I read for pleasure. Good books are like good food, necessary, deeply satisfying and wonderfully diverse.
I have a vast pantry of books that appealed to me when I bought them but which I haven’t tasted yet.
This year, I want to get good at selecting books from those shelves that will delight my palette throughout the year.
I don’t want books to become a chore. I don’t want to read them just because they’re worthy or heavily hyped or even the next book in a well-loved series, but because something about them makes me hungry for them on a particular day.
I’m sure I’ll get it wrong from time to time but I think it’s going to be fun when it works.
