Since it is that time of year, I thought I’d chime in with my own New Year’s resolution. I decided to pick one goal that’s very achievable. In fact, it is meant to be accomplished before spring.
For 2013, my New Year’s resolution is to read all the School Library Journal’s Battle of the Books contenders before the judging starts. Last year, I only finished 13 out of the 16 books selected, and I was catching up in between rounds. Still, I failed to get through Chime (yet it triumphed over The Cheshire Cheese Cat, sniff sniff), couldn’t bring myself to begin Daughter of Smoke and Bone, and didn’t remember most of Heart and Soul.
When March Madness rolls around, I’ll probably have to do some last-minute requesting at my local library to fulfill my 2013 resolution, but it’ll make the bracket planning, wagering, and judging process all the more fun.
