I have made a New Years Resolution. Even though its not a New Year. Its not even a New Year for me. (which I celebrate every year on my birthday). But I do not want to wait until the New Year to begin this resolution, so I will use the start of a New Season as an excuse.
I plan to read at least 26 books this year. My mentor, on top of publishing a book a year and raising five kids and being a husband, reads on average 125+ books a year. So I feel, that while raising only one child, working full time as well as pursuing my writing career, 26 books is a modest goal. To stay accountable I will review the novels that I read, along with my rating, for a lack of creativity, I will be using Gold Stars, and ranking the novels on a scale of 5. At this juncture, there is no criteria that books needs to meet in order for a good rating, it is just a personal like or dislike of a particular book.
I hope you enjoy my following thoughts over the course of the next year.
