Resolute


a year of good reading ahead
Originally uploaded by telfandrea.

I made the usual resolutions at the beginning of the new year. You know, the usual fitness and discipline-related goals that somehow, nine days in, I have nearly completely neglected. But one resolution will stick, come hell or high water: for the next year, I will buy no new books*. I will be content with the 1,600 books already in my house and I will frequent this thing called a library. Genius, no?

*There’s always a caveat. My resolution does not extend yard sales, thrift stores, and library book sales, just to new books, even heavily discounted, and all online purchases.

    And the year of “the asterisk” continues – now we all know the answer to the question: what do Barry Bonds and Andrea Griffith have in common? Answer: asterisk πŸ™‚ Nobody needs to feel sorry for Andrea but if anyone does I can help with suggestions off her Amazon.com wish list that I recommended she update and prioritize to increase her chances of getting a “new” book from me periodically throughout her year of sorrow. jk. – Telfer
