I can’t possibly resolve to read more. I will have to either quit my job or stop sleeping. But while that option is out, I can resolve to read differently.
I don’t want to make resolutions like ‘I will only read women authors’. Instead, I think my resolutions should be more like ‘I will read fewer/none white straight cis dudes’. Because I can resolve to read only women authors, but should I not also read gender-nonconfirming/non-binary/trans folks? Let us not make our reading resolutions binary.
I want to read more POC authors. I read a bunch in 2015, but not nearly enough (especially given how much I read).
I want to read more speculative fiction. It’s my original love, and it’s been somewhat neglected in 2015.
I want to read more short stories.
And yes, I will be doing Read Harder challenge 2016.
We’ll see how this works. We’ll also see how this works with whatever ARCs and galleys publishers throw at me.
