Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to you and your loved ones!
Make any resolutions? I don't really believe in resolutions, but something I'd really like to do this year is read more books. I have so many books and have probably only read about 1/8 of them.
I'd love to be able to read a ton of classics especially. Austen, Dickens, Bronte, Kerouac, Fitzgerald, Hemingway, Tolstoy, ETC. I'm ashamed to say I have never read very many of the books that those authors wrote.
Another thing I have a habit of doing is starting a book and then never finishing it. Usually what I do is start a book, get halfway through and then I'll either get busy with work or buy another book I'm excited about and forget about the previous one.
Well, here's to a new start, to a beautiful new year, lucky number thirteen! Twenty-twelve was not my favorite year, and I am so happy to be rid of it. Definitely ready for a fresh start full of new adventures. How about you?


  1. I agree with you about a fresh start! I hope to write more letters in 2013! I've been so busy at work, I haven't had much time or energy for writing letters. I plan to make a stronger effort this year. Happy New Year!

  2. I need to read more too!! I have been really slack and have been reading the same book for like 6 months :( happy new year Lauren.

  3. That collection of essays by Anne Fadiman is great. All book lovers must read it!


you're brilliant, thanks so much for commenting!
