Happy 2017 Everyone! I am eager to get started on this new year to come, and am thinking hard about what I need to do to in the year to come, at least where books and reading is concerned.
I want to be sure that I am an informed citizen, and vow to read up on issues that I care deeply about. I also need to work on being more vocal in support (or defense) of these issues.
Somewhat related, I vow to be more cognizant of my reading choices, and to actively read works by and about women, people of color, the LGBTQ+ community, and other diverse and/or underrepresented communities.
I am also making even more of an effort to #ReadMyOwnDamnBooks this year. Outside of my own shelves, I will borrow books from the library. But I am really really going to try and not buy any new books for myself. The Library Used Book Sale doesn't count.
I hope that these small resolutions will help me in my overall goal to just be a happier me.
I wish you happiness as well, and all good things.
