The Always Insightful Words of Neil Gaiman

When Neil Gaiman writes a New Year's wish on his blog, it's always golden. (If you haven't read CORALINE or THE GRAVEYARD BOOK or STARDUST or ODD AND THE FROST GIANTS, fix that immediately.) Here's the link to this year's journal post, which highlights all of the others he's written throughout the years.

I particularly love 2010's:

"I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.
Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're Doing Something."

A Reader's Resolution

A Reader’s Resolution Written by Grant Goodman, 12/31/2014

This year I will go on a thousand adventures. I will travel across countries, through space, and all throughout time. I will partake in daring rescues and tragic failures. I will be a part of star-crossed romance and the kinds of deep friendships that we should all be lucky enough to have.

I will discover twenty new sentences that give me chills. I will find a new author whose words give my world more meaning and color.

I will do what I can to deal with the fact that there will always be more books than I have time for.

I will stop losing so many bookmarks.

This year I will turn more pages, tame more dragons, and solve more mysteries.

This is a year for reading.
