    The only resolution I have ever made regarding reading, was one year I resolved to not read each day until I had written at least one hour. It was AGONY! I think I lasted about three weeks. (I did get a lot of writing done in those three weeks!) I read at least 400 books per year. Like FW, it is as necessary to me as eating and breathing. Luckily, it is a completely acceptable addiction in our society.

    I am another one who devours books. My crocet forum has a 50 books in a year challenge and I just laugh.

    I'm with Sabine and FW on this one. Thank goodness my mother and sisters believe in keeping me supplied.

    We have 5 6' bookshelves and need more. Of those, 2 are mine, 2 are his, and one is devoted to cookbooks. Of mine, one is fiction, one is nonfiction. I've read about half ofeach bookshelf.

    I have 3 x 6' in my den with no room for more. Have purged about as much as I care to, I tend to hoard. Going to have to reorganize and move some to the basement, as there are stacks on the floor everywhere and I'm in danger of becoming one of those maze people. I die in the den and it takes a rescue team a week to locate me.

    Follow the smell...

    That doesn't help, the smell is everywhere!

    I used to be a voracious reader and I just don't really read much anymore. This past year, I've read the most books ever since high school. I read the Fifty Shades series and The Hunger Games trilogy. Still trying to get through The Hobbit. I can't read non-fiction at all anymore. Non-fiction just puts me to sleep.

    Sleep
    As many of you know, I generally go to bed around 10 and get up at 4:30 am. I prep a lot of stuff for my family in the morning, exercise, shower etc. and have to leave the house by 7am. I sleep on avg. 5-6 hrs which is not enough. The one thing that I did right over the holiday was allowing my body to wake when it was ready. It turns out that I need 7-7.5 hrs of sleep. Yesterday, when the alarm went off at 4:30, I almost cried. I hit the snooze button until 5. Luckily, I had taken a shower the night before and I discovered that my flat iron can make even bed head look good.

    So, I have decided to make a change. I will now be setting my alarm for 5am. It is just a small change but it will make a big difference. I will move my showers to the evenings and forego exercise on work mornings. Unfortunately, I cannot go to bed earlier. I will get into bed between 9 & 10 on school nights. At least this way, I will be in bed 7-8hrs.

    Small changes lead to big ones! I've been regularly waking up before my alarm but it's just TOO COLD for me to get out of bed. The heat comes on at 6AM and I usually wake right around then. It might be from the radiators clanging though . Over the weekend, I'm going to experiment with getting up without an alarm. This means making sure I have slippers and my footie pajamas very close to the bed so I can wrap up as soon as I get out from under the covers.

    I am out of space for books and am actually considering moving all my paper books into storage and going almost 100% kindle. It would free up room in the house and cut down on places to store dust. That said, I tend to judge houses without visible books less than favorably and would hate to think less of myself every time I come through the front door.

    I tend to be a fantasy, sci-fi, horror (in frequently) reader and should pick up some non-fiction. I just have a hard time finding much non-fiction of interest, well, of enough interest to read a whole book as opposed to an article or three.

    My resolution to be nicer is working out so far. It wont last.

    So far I am keeping the 'be a gentleman outloud' resolution. What happens in the mind stays in the mind

    I need to do a 'write every day' resolution. I have done it so far but no consistent word count. I need to set a daily word count.

    Looking around the den this morning, I realized that all 3 bookshelves are lined up 2-deep with books. There is literally no room at the inn. If I'm in there and we get a good temblor... it was nice knowing you all...
