I am especially happy to report that I completely destroyed my 2007 Book Resolution, which was simply to read more than 24 books. I’m actually kind of impressed that I came so close to the 52 books a year/one book a week magic number. Granted, 3o or so of the books I read in 2007 were for my young adult literature class, but I managed to keep up the pace relatively well for the rest of the year, all things considered. So what will my 2008 Book Resolution be? To read 52 books! (But just as a cover-my-own-ass measure, I’d be completely happy if I read 35 books, too.)
