New Year’s Resolutions

1 Jan


1. I will write more book reviews.
2. I will pick a few topics and stick to them.

Ah hell, I’ll never keep these resolutions, so why lie to you?

1. I won’t write New Year’s posts – year’s best, worst, highest rated, resolutions – again.

Now, I can keep that promise!
