readolution (noun): the act of setting a measurable goal related to reading
It has been a long time since I’ve set a formal reading goal. Being that it is January 1, this seems like the perfect day to declare my 2014 readolution:
I will read a minimum of one chapter book each week, then write a 7 word review / summary of the book. This can include both children’s and YA titles.
Why did I choose this readolution? One reason: I binge-read. It isn’t uncommon for me to read 4 novels in 4 days, then read nothing for 10+ days (except picture books and news/magazines). To add some consistency to my reading habit should also increase the number of books I read – a good thing, as my students believe I have read every title in our school library.
I’ll ask my students to set a readolution when we get back to school next week, and I hope to get J-girl and my boy H to set one as well. What about you? Will you set a readolution? If so, please share it!
