#2 Figure out a happy balance between getting to read all the stories/books that look interesting ... and taking the time to really enjoy them.

Today's Goodreads Quote said:
“In the case of good books, the point is not to see how many of them you can get through, but rather how many can get through to you.” (Mortimer J. Adler)

Thought that was pretty ironic. Be more choosy, I guess? Sometimes I get caught up in wanting to know what all the fuss is about, or wanting to know about as many books as I can for school and the kids/teachers, and sometimes it's just because HEY IT LOOKS LIKE A GOOD BOOK. My Goodreads To Read list is almost ... what is it. About 950 books? Let's be realistic here. Some of them have been on that list for years. Just about every time I knock one or two or three off of the TO Read list I add another five or six. I currently have my holds maxed out at the public library ... and most of them are not even picture books. Plus I have about eight books from our school collection that need to get back into the hands of kids!

Quantity is not the same thing as quality. So ... this is not a great resolution because I'm not exactly sure how I'm going to measure any steps I might take. But that is my goal. :]
