One of my goals for this year is to read more, a lot more though even a little more would be a vast improvement from the 2012 screen induced coma I have had myself in. Last year I think I read four books: The Sisters Brothers / Look at Me / Savages / Jane Eyre. The year before that it was much closer to twenty-four books. It's true I have been busier and tv feels like about all I can muster at times, but I can make more time for more reading and I should do so because I love it. I feel happier when I am reading more often. I feel more like me. I think whatever happens between your brain and your soul while reading is a bit magical and I do not want to go through this year without indulging. On Rooth's recommendation I started the Night Circus the first of this month - at halfway through I am not up to my normal reading speed and consumption but I think I might be able to at least get through these six books this year if I continue trying to make it a priority. Also on my list is the The Walking Dead comic series. Fisher got a large 8 volume compendium book for Christmas and says it's even better than the show and that I have to read it. A couple of these books have been moved from last years reading list to this one, like 1Q84 (Murakami is one of my favorites) and Sherman Alexie's book which sounds fantastic; I took a year of Native American History in college and I can't believe I haven't cracked this one open yet, but it's next on my list.
Are you reading anything I should know about? Any must reads on your list?
