new year resolutions: reading

January 2, 2012


When I was first asked what my New Year’s resolution would be this year, without hesitation my answer was: to read.

Yes, to read. To be more specific, I chose my resolution to be to read more books, or at least finish them.

Like many others, I have become guilty of being the chronic book starter. I begin to read a book, get some what through it, and then lose interest. The craziness of life, work, blogging, and training for Ironman has made it difficult to stop, relax, and finish a good book. It’s rather pathetic.


To help jump start my reading habit, I’ve been utilizing my iPad2’s iBook app. As nerdy as it sounds, it has really helped me get back into reading mode. I love reading it at night! In fact, I’m just about done reading The New York Regional Mormon Singles Halloween Dance by Elna Baker.

I also have plans of reading:

I’m Here to Win: A World Champion’s Advice for Peak Performance by Chris McCormack,

The Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey, and

I’m With the Band: Confessions of a Groupie by Pamela Des Barres.

What are you reading? I’d love your suggestions.

Happy New Year! I look forward to seeing what 2012 has to offer, including the stories I get lost in.

Keep cravin’ what you love —

    Reading is one of my resolutions too! I plan to read atleast 20 books this year covering diverse genres. You can check out for some suggestions that friends have given me. You may find some of them irrelevant as they are on India or by Indian authors. But others are mostly well known books!
