Today’s Musing Mondays post is about New Year reading. With the New Year here already, do you have any reading resolutions or goals (challenges aside) for 2010? Perhaps a new author? Genre? Want to read more non-fiction? Write more reviews?

Besides the resolutions that I have already posted about, I do have one desire/goal for the upcoming year: to find “collectable” editions of my favourite books.  I don’t mean that they have to be valuable, but I would like to own copies of my favourite books that will last me another few decades.  Hardcover, first edition and preferably signed!  I don’t really care if they are worth anything (and hopefully my favourites won’t be, as I am not exactly rolling in money) but I love the idea of having a book I love that I can plan on having for a while…

It is something that I have wanted to do for a while, but have never been too willing to part with my cash.  But lately I have started to think of it more as an investment in my future.  Also, a lot of the books I want can only be found used or in some warehouse in Kentucky – and are actually a lot cheaper than I expected!

I also want to plan out my reading time more efficiently… okay, plan my reading time, full stop.  I am currently a bit of a spontaneous reader – which is great, but it also means that I never really get the opportunity to put everything on hold and just read.  Could planning my reading time fix that?  I don’t know… but it is worth a shot!

As for genres… I really need to read more popular science for my degree.  It will be tough for me, but as I do believe that non-fiction can be amazing, I need to practice what I preach!
