Make Reading a New Year’s Resolution!


The folks over at BOOKish have a wonderful idea: add reading to your list of New Year’s resolutions. They have helpful hints for how you can accomplish this:

Read a new author

It’s so difficult to determine which authors are “new” to which readers, so we’re recommending reads by a slew of recent fantastic debut authors.

Read a classic
The high-school-aged book nerd in you really wants to (finally!) read a classic this year. Maybe it’s thatEdith Wharton novel you were supposed to read for a class but never did. Maybe you want to read”Moby-Dick”–because “Moby-Dick.”

Check out the rest of there hints here.

What are your reading resolutions this New Year, Rumpus readers?
