Bookish New Year's Resolutions

For many of us, the New Year means new resolutions.  This year, how about making a few bookish New Year’s resolutions?   Here are a few to get you started…

 - Read a nonfiction book.  If you love thriller and suspense novels, try a  true crime novel like Devil in the White City by Erik Larson.

- Read outside of your comfort zone.  If you  typically read romance novels, why not add a little fantasy or sci-fi with a paranormal romance book?  Kelley Armstrong and Anne Bishop are a good place to start.

- Read a classic novel.  Remember those books on the assigned reading lists in school or college, like The great Gatsby, Their eyes were watching God, or Romeo & Juliet?  Try re-reading (or reading for the first time) a classic to discover something new about the book.

- Listen to ten audiobooks.  Give your eyes a rest and listen to the audiobook.

- Read more books than you did last year.  The book site GoodReads let’s you challenge yourself!

- Watch the movie before you read the book.  Switch it up to see how the book compares to the movie.

- Watch at least five movies based on books.  See the “From Page to Screen in 2017” list for a few Movie Night suggestions.

Those are just a few bookish resolutions.  Have any you’d like to share?
