TGIF at Greads! is a weekly meme hosted by Ginger over at Greads!, which gives us a new question to answer each week.

This week's question:
Reading Resolutions: What are some of your reading goals for the new year?

  • Read more! I'm a slow reader, so one of the things I want to try and improve on this year is getting books read faster.
  • I need to stop buying more books for a while and concentrate on reading the piles of unread ones that are spread throughout my house. I seem to read the newest book in my collection before those that have been sat there for years, so I need to try and break the cycle. Easier said than done though, right?
  • Learn how to read poetry properly. And Shakespeare. I still don't understand these completely! So two books I must get around to are Shakespeare on Toast by Ben Crystal, and The Ode Less Travelled by Stephen Fry. Help me out here, boys!
  • It's not really a reading resolution as much as a writing resolution. I'm doing a couple of creative writing courses this year, so I want to try my hand at putting together a short story or two. Perhaps if I feel confident enough, I might share them on my blog. ;-)
What are your own reading resolutions for the year ahead?
