New Year’s Resolution Reading Challenge


December 26,2012 – January 31st, 2013

So many New Year’s Resolutions falter within days of January 1. Readers know that one way to sustain resolve and focus is to read a book on the topic. The goal of this challenge is to build a community around reading books to support our New Year’s Resolutions so that we can share book ideas and encourage each other in our pursuits.
Whether you are resolved to apply to graduate school, write that novel, or eat healthier, there are books that will help. The New Year’s Resolution Reading Challenge is to read 1 to 4 books that will stimulate action on your goal. Here are the levels:
Resolved: 1 book
Determined: 2 books
Committed: 3 books
Passionate: 4 books
The books can all support the same resolution and be on similar topics (4 books on gardening, for example) or they can be about different resolutions (1 book on  French, 1 book on home-cooking, 1 book on leadership skills, and 1 book on financial stability, for example).
The New Year’s Resolution Reading Challenge will run from December 26 to January 31. But, unless your New Year’s Resolution is “stop cheating,” go ahead and start reading today if you feel like it!
