Look what I just got in my inbox, courtesy of Amazon.com:
It’s like they know that my New Year’s Resolution is to read more!
And while suggesting I get a new tech toy to help me along that path is a great idea (I was actually thinking the same thing!), I would totally rather have an iPad or even a Nook. Why can’t the iPad be $139?
But I am thinking about it…
Does anyone have a Kindle, iPad, or Nook? And if so, have you significantly increased how much you read with one of these devices?
Now that everyone’s hopefully fully recovered from New Year’s Eve, what’s the one thing most people focus on now? That’s right, the New Year’s Resolutions. I don’t usually make them because I have a hard time thinking of meaningful things to focus on. And when I do make one, it’s never been fitness-related.
The same holds true this year. Working out is just a part of my lifestyle and I don’t see that changing any time soon. My resolution for 2011 is simply to read more. I’m notorious for my general dislike of reading. I blame that on years of schooling where I associated it with “work” and subjects I didn’t really care to read about.
I’m wanting to get back into reading –like I was up until college — so that’s why I made this resolution. However, it’s not going to be anything off of Oprah’s Book Club list. I’m going to be reading self-help, fitness, autobiographies, and humor selections; things that interest me. Maybe, if this catches on, I’ll graduate to other types of books. I don’t want to think, mind you. I just want to be entertained and possibly learn a thing or two. Plus, any excuse to get a Kindle/Nook/iPad later down the line is welcomed 😉
What’s your New Year’s Resolution, if you have one?
