In 2014, I read 41 books: 20 by women, 3 by people of color, 2 by women of color, and 4 by people who openly identify as gay or queer. Even though I had grad school professors dictating what I read for the first half of the year, that is no excuse, and even with making an effort to read almost exclusively books by women the second half of the year, these statistics are pathetic.
In 2015, my goal is to read 50 books by women, with the majority of those by women of color. (Tweet me recommendations at @eb_bartels, or comment on this post!)
My other goal is to read The New Yorker as soon as I get it in the mail, instead of just adding it to the big old pile of unread New Yorker magazines on my desk.
Oh, and to go to the gym or whatever.
