This year, though, I did make a resolution: I resolved that I would only allow myself to purchase one new book for every three previously unread books in my library that I finally read. (Is that clear? Seems convoluted to me.) I'd like to read more of the books in my existing library before I continue to expand.
Oh, and for the record, I made it to January 7th before blowing my resolution with a 1932 Everymans' "The Heart of Mid-Lothian" which I smuggled into the house and hid in plain sight on my already overcrowded bookcase. My son warned me that I'd know I failed when I started writing myself I.O.U.s -- well, we just won't tell him, will we....
This year I'm going to be 10% thinner, 10% fitter, 10% nicer to people I don't like, 20% more patient generally, 25% more tolerant in queues, and 25% more generous to beggars if I can afford it. All this will make me a 100% better person!
