277. READ MORE – 2011 New Year’s Resolution #1

Home Newsroom 277. READ MORE – 2011 New Year’s Resolution #1

I’m trying to be selective as I make my new years resolutions for 2011. With two young kids at home, I have to be realistic about how much time there is to tackle my “Master” to-do list. Instead, I’m choosing fewer goals that are the most important, starting with finding time to read more to myself and to my kids.  For me, I just picked up a book recommended by a friend called The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barberry.  And I’m turning to the Barrington Area librarians to recommend some new books for my kids.
