Last year, I only read about two or three books the entire year. Granted, I work two jobs and I did a lot of writing, but that's still pretty dismal. This year, my New Year's Resolution is to read 25 books--a little more than two books a month. Of the 25 books, I plan to focus on reading novels. This includes classics I never read in high school or college; young adult and middle grade books; and books that come highly recommended by friends. I'll blog about each book and what I learned from it. Afterall, books should teach us something right? Stay tuned. First up is a young adult book called The Alchemyst by Michael Scott.
