- Set a reading goal – I am reading 24 books (two books a month) this year. I also want to check out one cookbook a month and try a new recipe.
- Choose a book about a topic that interests you – I love tea. I have always wanted to open my own cafe. I just started to read the Tea Shop Mystery series by Laura Childs
- Read a book that takes place in a location you have been or a place where you would like to go – Someday, Someday, Maybe by Lauren Graham. This is a story in NYC.
- Pick a book that takes place during the current season – Every winter I have always wanted to read A Week in Winter by Maeve Binchy. It takes place in Ireland and I have always wanted to go there.
