It is a new year - do you make resolutions? More importantly, do you keep them? A resolution to do something you should do, but prefer to avoid is asking for failure.
What new resolutions can you make
that you will look forward to keeping?
1. Start a Reading Journal. This doesn't have to be fancy - unless that makes you happy. A reading journal is a great way to keep track of what you have read and what you found moving, valuable, or important from that reading. It can be books, magazines, or even digital media. Keep track of what matters to you - it is a reflection of who you are.
2. Talk about Your Books. No toastmasters required! This is just about sharing. Talk at the dinner table, on a walk with your friend, or on social media. Share what you have read and what you loved and connect with others. This is also the absolute best way to turn children into readers - they see you doing it and they want to be like you!
3. Read Together. Read aloud to and with your family or friends. There is a great connection with a shared story and memories. This is a fun way to get together on digital platforms if you are quarantined or have covid restrictions in your area. Choose a book, connect your friends, and read aloud together. This can be quite a funny time or a serious endeavor - it all depends on the book and your friends!
