Reading Resolutions

Inspired by the 75 Book Challenge (which I will not accept--I think I only managed about 10 books in total in 2005), I've decided on the following resolutions for 2006:

I'm a slow reader. I like to take my time. The number isn't important. But always reading is. I resolve to read at least one book a month. I do have other things to do, you know.

I've always tried to read the New Yorker fiction (though I'm not nearly as dedicated as Max at The Millions). But the magazines begin to stack up at my chair in the living room, on the night stand, and (sorry) in the bathroom. I don't read nearly as many as I'd like, and I usually end up starting the ones I'm not liable to enjoy anyway. I don't think it's unreasonable for me to read at least one of these stories a month.

So, I set my goals low. With a child ready to turn nine-months-old, I'm not guessing that I'm getting too much free-time this year. Besides, there are some Writing Resolutions to come.
