Time to make resolutions. And many of us can’t keep them, let’s be honest. It’s hard to stick to that diet, or lose those 10 pounds we really don’t need to lose anyway, right? Try a solid New Year’s resolution you can do this year instead.
Here at LT, we suggest a reading resolution. How many books have you read this year that involve great travels that inspire you? How many of you still haven’t read On The Road or another great traveling work of fiction that you’ve been dying to read? If so, then it’s time to set your reading resolution for 2010.
We suggest either trying to set an amount of books to read i.e. 10 great travel books for all of 2010 (we understand you like to read other types of literature as well!) or pick two travel classics you still haven’t had the time to read. For ideas, troll Literary Traveler and see what inspires you.
Another tip comes from Sharp Brains, an article entitled 10 Brain Fitness New Year’s Resolutions by Alavaro Fernandez, which says:
“If you usually read non-fiction, try something new this season. Pick up a good fiction book. Or vice versa. For bonus points, subscribe to or simply read a new magazine, perhaps one that your partner craves? It will help you understand another perspective.”
We like that idea.
So this year, make a resolution you can achieve, and you’ll feel much more accomplished in 2010!
**Editor’s Note: LT thanks you for all your support in 2009 – we look forward to inspiring you in 2010 as well. Happy New Year to all our literary travelers!
