So I've put it out in the open, and I think that's the first step. If you put something into writing (even though it's in digital ink), it's there, it's a commitment and a promise to myself. If I fail, I've no one to blame but my lazy ass self.
But why am I doing this? Well, I guess it's finally time for me to read some of the literary classics that I've been avoiding. I just read my first Austen, and, even though I didn't like it that much, I can now say that I've read her. In fact, I think my reading Emma might have increased my detestation for this beloved author.
Also, in a way, reading the classics would minimize my compulsive book-buying habits. I've checked my shelves, and I think I have most of the letters covered. So, bring it on, 2014! I'm so ready for you.
