Kelly Brown | 379 comments I did terrible with my reading last year. I didn't hit my book total goal or my plan goal. (Too much tv and tablet games) I have joined Instagram with plans to post about books, and I have a new tablet and phone to chat about books. My resolution this year is to read more. I am sure my family will shake their heads at that. I am going to read what I feel like too, and try to fit it in the plan this year instead of the other way around. Planning it out didn't work too well for me last year. I am always open to suggestions and read reviews, so I am sure I will fill some of these prompts with what all of you read. Good luck to everyone and happy reading!
