Too good not to post.
Reading resolutions, already shot to hell.

Reading resolutions.

I liked Tripp's list of resolutions over at Books Are My Only Friends, and so thought I'd copy the idea (imitation being the sincerest form of flattery, after all). Also, reading resolutions I've got more than a snowball's chance in hell of keeping (unlike, you know, health or general "being nicer to other people" or "more social" type resolutions). So here goes!

1. This is the year I read Ray Bradbury's Dandelion Wine. I try every year and never get it done. Which is weird, as I love Something Wicked This Way Comes, but I am an autumn person, not a summer person.

2. This is also the year I read Tess of the D'Urbervilles. Sure, it's going to be a downer (did anyone catch it on Masterpiece Theatre last night?) but I, for whatever reason, have a deep appreciation for Thomas Hardy (Far from the Madding Crowd was one of my favorite reads last year) and want to read this one.

3. More poetry! More poetry! I must have me more poetry! Starting with a little Ted Hughes, perhaps, to ease myself into it.

4. Whenever I turn the TV (or, more disturbingly, YouTube) on, I need to turn it off and read instead. Unless, of course, Masterpiece Theatre is on.

Okay, let's get this year started!
