New Year's Resolution: Read More!

New Year's Day! What are your resolutions? Did you make a list?

Among others, such as learning to tat lace and learn lost wax casting, I also have resolved to read more books, particularly sci-fi and literature. This past year I found myself reading mostly comic books because of time restrictions, which was perfect for the amount of time I had at any one time. But this year is the year of READ for me! I found this excellent list for how to read more in the coming year:
  • Throw your phone in the ocean. (Or, keep it in airplane mode.) 
  • Carry a book with you at all times. 
  • Have another book ready before you finish the one you’re reading. (Make a stack of books to-read or load up your eReader.) 
  • If you aren’t enjoying a book or learning from it, stop reading it immediately. (Flinging it across the room helps give closure.) 
  • Schedule 1 hour of non-fiction reading during the day. (Commutes, lunch breaks, and any period of idle time work well.) 
  • Go to bed 1 hour early and read fiction. (It will help you sleep.) 
  • Keep a reading log and share your favorite books with others. (They will send you even more books to read.)
