So I have some goals in addition to reading 40 books this year that I’d like to share with you.

  1. Read no more than one nonfiction, one fiction, and one graphic novel at a time.
  2. Inspired by Colleen’s excellent post and this year’s YALSA YA Lit Symposium theme, I’m going to think more, read more, and write more about diversity in publishing.

I’m sure I’ll find more as I move through the year.

Currently Reading: Nonfiction - Time Management from the Inside Out by Julie Morganstern Fiction - The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

I’m not currently reading a graphic novel but I’m planning to pick up the Angel: After the Fall compilations (they’re hardcover!) from the shelf today.  The shelf in my house.  The comic book shelf.  (It is supplemented by the comic book box.  And then of course, there’s Will’s hundreds and hundres of issues in the attic.)

Next Up: Nonfiction - The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin or Odd Girl Out by Rachel Simmons Fiction - Dragon’s Keep by Janet Lee Carey or Dreams of the Dead by Thomas Randall

Which of these I read next will just depend on my mood, but it’s always nice to have a plan.
