Happy 2014, y’all! I just want to say a big THANK YOU to both old and new readers of Paper Breathers; I’ve learned so much from you, and you have no clue how grateful I feel that you’ve stuck around for all my long rants, clumsy book reviews, and random bursts of feels. I haven’t been as active in the book blogging community as I’d have liked because of real life (and I think that will be the case for the next five years, unfortunately), but I’ve truly enjoyed talking to those of you who have taken the time to stop by. 🙂
My recap of Paper Breathers in 2013 will be a short one because I only started this blog three months ago, but it’ll be interesting to see how these stats change over time…
And finally, here are my new year’s resolutions – I’ve picked out three that are easy enough to remember, and that apply to both my online and offline lives. When I check back at the end of 2014, I want to be able to check off each of these resolutions and proudly say, Yes, I did do that this year. Yes, I can keep the promises I make with myself.
- BE POSITIVE / Pick out good aspects of every book; smile everyday and recite Mary Oliver’s “Why I Wake Early.”
- BE BOLD / Try new genres; rant more; ask more questions.
- CHERISH TIME / Schedule things and use my planner more; sleep more; procrastinate less.
What are your new year’s resolutions? What are you looking forward to in 2014?
