Booking Through Thursday: Any New Year’s reading resolutions?

bookingthroughthursdaybutton Any New Year’s reading resolutions?

Now, there’s a fairly easy one…and I actually already answered it at the turn of the year, for the most part.

1. Taking the “To Be Read” Challenge, to read at least 12 books from my to-be-read list. Books determined BEFORE 2011 started. There is a list of “alternates” that may be substituted for any of the 12.

  • The Last Days of Krypton by Kevin J. Anderson
  • The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan
  • The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan
  • Dragons of the Highlord Skies by Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman
  • Dragons of the Hourglass Mage by Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman
  • The Wastelands by Stephen King
  • Wizard and Glass by Stephen King
  • The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown
  • Ancestor by Scott Sigler
  • Vampire a Go-Go by Victor Gischler
  • Go-Go Girls of the Apocalypse by Victor Gischler
  • Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett

2. Adopt-a-Character 2011…adopting Usagi Yojimbo by Stan Sakai. I’ve already obtained and read vol. 1, and look forward to continuing in the series. I’d have to obtain/read at least 2 per month all year to get through the ENTIRE series. While that would be awesome in its own way…it’s not likely to happen. Still, I’d love to be at least halfway through the series by the end of the year.

3. Catching up on some graphic novel reading. I’d like to finish reading Preacher (Vertigo), Annihilation and Annihilation: Conquest (Marvel), Transmet (Vertigo), Monster (Naoki Urasawa, Viz), and Ron Marz’ Witchblade (Top Cow) run.

Plus, of course, keeping up with some comics in general, and reviewing. Along with reading, I’m going to make a go at 3 1/2 seasons of Psych, as well as see how far I can get into the entire run of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel.
