I hope you've been surfing through January, keeping those resolutions in check, reading some books, writing some words.
January is a busy time for the booknapper. It's when she puts her haus in order--not her actual house, which seems orderless, but actually runs on an irregular routine that only she understands. I am paying bills (and organizing the post-Christmas evidence of a pre-Christmas spending spree). I'm revising my goals, my budget, and all of my ideas regarding the universe.
Next: that dastardly TBR pile--my, how we've grown in 2009.
My 2010 goals are based on the work/life blend principle, or "worlindiple" (wer-lyn-dipple), my made-up philosophy in which I attempt to feed two birds with one worm.
Goal #1: No buying books, movies, or CDs until I demolish the TBR pile.
I know. I know. It's going to be tough, but it's also going to be cheap and rewarding. You know what helps when you're doing something tough?
Having someone do it with you.
So who's in? Anyone else want to put a moratorium on pop culture spending until his or her TBR pile is no more? Make it public in the comments.
