As January draws to a close, it's really my last chance to blog about New Year's resolutions, so here they are before the time runs out.
1) Blog more. This is one of those things like 'exercise more' or 'eat healthily' that crop up over and over again but rarely eventuate. But all the same I'd like to blog more regularly this year. And leave comments on other blogs, rather than lurking as usual.
2) Read at least one book from every continent (apart from Antarctica). My reading tends to be very dominated by, roughly in order, England, the US and Australia. So in order to mix things up a bit I've set this target, I think it's pretty easily achievable but I don't really have a plan of attack. Any recommendations (particularly for books from Africa and Asia, which I don't come across often) greatly appreciated! It can be difficult to define a book's 'nationality', so I'm using these guidelines- author's nationality + setting of book + language originally published in must all be from a country in that continent. There are a whole bunch of different ways you could do this, I thought this way would be interesting.
That's it really. We'll see how I go with those. In the mean time, in aid of 1 I have been thinking about posts on trilogies, folk tales and brunch. Not sure how many of those will make it into coherent post form, wait and see!
