It is the beginning of a new year. Even if you don't make an official "resolution" it might be rewarding to challenge yourself with a reading goal for the year.
For example, many years ago I promised myself that I would read at least one chapter each night before I turned off my light. Some chapters are very sort while others seem to never end but I have stayed true to my promise...mostly. My list of books read is impressive in my estimation. I also keep a log of the books I read and/or listen to.
Our library system encourages young people to read with Summer Reading , Ready Set Read (they keep a log as they read 20 minutes a day and are rewarded with a book of their choice) and Read 3 Get One Free (Teens write 3 reviews and choose a book as their reward). We have a program that encourages adults to Take Time To Read!
There are lots of blogs and websites where people pledge 100 books a year or one book a week. How about trying 25 Classics this year?
Reading a book a day would be daunting for me! But Nina Sankovitch started reading a book a day as a way to cope with her grief after losing her sister. You can read about her year of reading in Tolstoy and the purple chair: my year of magical reading.

My point here is, make a goal or a promise to read. Make it something that works for you. Amaze yourself in December 2012 with how much more you add to your very own list of "books I have read".
