I'm a lazy person, anyone who knows me has to realize that. I don't really do New Year's resolutions. Not so much because I'm against them on principle, I just can't stick to a set of ground rules I implemented at the beginning of the year.
- buy less books and finish the ones I already have (uh huh, sure) (Update: I bought 5(!) books yesterday!
- finish a series before buying 2 (or 10) more books (hmmm)
- feel less stressed out when others read books I want! (good luck with this one!)
- Don't feel pressured to read 500 books when I only have time for 100. The whole idea of reading is to enjoy the experience, not rush through it.
Another thing I'm hoping to do this year is really let authors know how much I loved their books. I think I forget sometimes how much work and love went into these stories, and they would probably like to know that! So I think in some way I will be more appreciative of authors, and not just blog about their books but send them an email. I already do that with some authors, but not as much as I'd like. So this year I want to show more appreciation for the hours of entertainment I experience because of these books.
That's really all I've got. Nothing too elaborate. Also, I plan on attending Lori Foster's June get-together in Cincinnati (hope to see you there!) and also RWA in Nashville. Looking forward to both events and I hope to get a chance to meet more authors and readers, though I'll be the first one to tell you what a dork I am, so don't expect much LOL.
What are your 2010 reading intentions?
Attending any conferences this year?
