Happy New Year!
As we start a new year, many of us make resolutions to better ourselves in some way. One common resolution is to read more, whether it's to stay informed, relax, or learn something new. If you're a library patron looking to make reading a priority in the new year, here are some ways to incorporate your reading lists and get organized:
Set a reading goal: Make a plan to read a certain number of books or pages in the new year. This could be a specific number or a more general goal, such as "read more frequently."
Make a reading list: Write down the titles and authors of the books you want to read, or use a reading app or website to keep track of your list. This can help you stay on track and avoid forgetting about a book you've been meaning to read.
Mix it up: Consider including a variety of genres and authors on your reading list to keep things interesting. This can help you discover new writers and perspectives, and prevent you from getting stuck in a reading rut.
Find the right time: Determine when you are most likely to have time to read and make it a priority during those times. This could be first thing in the morning, during your lunch break, or before bed.
Join a book club: Consider joining a book club at your library or online. This can provide accountability and the opportunity to discuss your thoughts and insights with others.
By following these tips and incorporating your reading lists, you can make reading a part of your daily routine and achieve your reading goals in the new year. Happy reading!
