New Year's Resolution:  Read a Book a Month in 2020

Take the William C. Benaudi Library New Year Challenge and read a book a month in 2020.

The benefits of reading are powerful. Reading can boost intelligence and increase empathy.  

Read a book or poems, true crime, philosophy, and even tap into our eBook collection. Visit our New Books section in the Library and pick something random or interesting. 

We will be posting book talks and recommendations on the 25th of each month on our Facebook page.  Jump in any time!  

 

How Do I Join In? 

1) As you read a book a month - add them to this form.  

2) If you follow us on Facebook, look for the end of the month call for book discussion. If you filled out this form, we will send you a reminder.  I will also add reviews to this comment section. 

3) The New Years Resolution Link will be on the Library's Home Page in the middle section under Events|Services|Forms. See below. So you will be able to find the form through out the year.

I am reading a poetry book called Slant Six.  It is by a poet named Erin Belieus.  I picked up the book randomly at the Moses Lake Public Library.  It is a slim volume, but it has a lot of power in it.  The emotions she's able to pull from seemingly simple combinations of words have really shaken me.  I am enjoying her perspective particularly as she's lived and traveled in some areas familiar to me. 

For this New Year's resolution, I am going to continue to be random in my selections.

I haven't finished the book yet and will share my thoughts on it and samples of her work nearer to the end of the month.
