My goals for 2013:
- Read for pleasure, escape, and relaxation
- Learn some new things or gain new insights by reading nonfiction occasionally
- Find some new authors to follow
So far this month I've made progress on the last goal. My son recommended a science fiction/fantasy series that starts with Ilium, by Dan Simmons. I reviewed it on Goodreads. I found the book interesting and challenging, and I will look for the next one Olympos later this year.
I really appreciate suggestions that some of you have made. I am usually not disappointed, and that's mostly how I find new authors nowadays. I sometimes feel guilty that I don't get into my wonderful public library often anymore. It's a function of the disjoint between their hours and my schedule. That's where I traditionally found ideas. So since I can't get into the library often, I really do depend on digital recommendations. Keep the suggestions coming!
