2023 New Year Literary Resolution
Make time for reading. Sink into it. Distract yourself and enter other worlds. Spend some time browsing for a book in a bookshop. Let the book find you!
Embrace a few classics, the list is endless: The Odyssey, The Hobbit, Siddhartha, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Old Man and the Sea, A Room of One’s Own. Romeo & Juliet…
Read a classic mystery by Agatha Christie, Dorothy Sayer, Dashiell Hammett, Georgette Heyer…
Read a short story by Jorge Luis Borges, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Toni Morrison, Stephen King…
Read a cookbook, a history book, a western, a book on religion…
Re-read some old favorites.
Join or start a book club.
Try new authors.
And give yourself the one-chapter rule (trade the book in if you can’t get into it after one chapter).
Slowing down to read a book can help you appreciate your life! Who knows? You might become a writer too!
