I made the usual resolutions at the beginning of the new year. You know, the usual fitness and discipline-related goals that somehow, nine days in, I have nearly completely neglected. But one resolution will stick, come hell or high water: for the next year, I will buy no new books*. I will be content with the 1,600 books already in my house and I will frequent this thing called a library. Genius, no?
*There’s always a caveat. My resolution does not extend yard sales, thrift stores, and library book sales, just to new books, even heavily discounted, and all online purchases.
