A New Year Dawns Brighter?
I sure hope so. Time, as we all know is just an illusion, but it’s hard to fathom life without it. So a New Year is easy to comprehend. And the 365 days left to do what we want in that short period.
I’m not going to babble on about all the issues and problems I want solved in this New Year. I’m not going to mumble and grumble about situations that have gone awry in the last year. I’m going to stumble and bumble on about books, and what I want to do with them this year.
No…I’m not going to rip out pages and roll around naked in them. That was last year. This year my goal is simple. To read at least 15 fiction novels. I tend to gravitate towards only reading SF and Fantasy. I need to stop this and focus more on all fiction. I can name two off the bat that will be read. ‘Moby Dick’ – Melville and ‘Things Fall Apart’ – Chinua Achebe. But that’s only 2. What will be the other 13?
If I accomplish this goal will my New Year dawn brighter? Or is that just an illusion as well?
