It's a new year, which means it's time to make resolutions that you plan to implement to better your life. Smoke less. Exercise more. Finally write the great American novel, while exercising, and resisting the urge to light up a cigarette...you get the point.
As bibliophiles, however, we make New Year's Resolutions that are largely—if not entirely—reading-related ones. And there's nothing wrong with that! Check out our ideas for some reading resolutions for 2014 below, and make sure to add your own in the comments!
I discovered The Last Policeman in the best possible way… I was perusing a bookshelf in a little town while on a summer trip to Oregon. Somehow being transported to a wintery setting in doomed New Hampshire was all the more visceral because I was enjoying 90-degree days.
I was really drawn to the apocalyptical aspects of the story. Trying to imagine the impact on society when faced with imminent destruction is thrilling. A book that takes you on a journey through that gloomy landscape conjures an assortment of images.
