MY NEW YEAR resolution for 2006 is to be more cautious in choosing the kind of books I buy, read and keep. Yes, to think properly before I make a purchase. Most of the time I end up disappointed with my purchases. Quality should always override quantity in all aspects: characterisation, storyline, narrative style, etc. I intend to read more critical literary magazines to make better book-buying decisions. And I also intend to read more quality nonfiction as well, especially memoirs and history.
