Reading Resolutions for 2013

Happy New Year for 2013!  The National Year of Reading, 2012 may be over, but that doesn't mean you should stop reading! Make a New Year's Reading resolution to...
  • Keep reading. Newspapers, magazines, blog posts, car manuals, signs, posters, dictionaries, cook books and comics. Its all reading. 
  • Get a reading habit-  Aim for just ten minutes a day! Try reading with your morning coffee,  in your lunch break, in the bath, before bed.
  • Read more books. Challenge yourself to read a book a week, or even to read a book this year. 
  • Stop reading books you are not enjoying. Life's too short. You don't need to finish every book you start. 
  • Read together. Read aloud to the kids, or sit together while you each read your own books. 
  • Re- read some old favourites. Remind yourself of why you love to read.
  • Read outside your comfort zone. Joining a book group is a great way to do this. 
  • Read a new author. New to you, or a debut author. 
  • Read that book you've always planned to read- but never quite got around to.
  • Read a book being made into a movie. Was the book better than the movie?
  • Read a book recommended by someone else. It might be the best book you 've ever read.
  • Visit the Library more often. You'll find there's more to read than just books...
