52 “Books” in 52 Weeks
Every year I have high aspirations of some daily creative endeavor. I’d love to go out and do some street photography, draw a portrait, or design some hand drawn type. The bare facts are I don’t have that kind of time right now.
Instead, this year, I’m choosing to consume. That’s oversimplifying it but that says a little bit about how I feel about the choice. I’m going to try to read 52 self gratifying pieces this year. A simple one per week concept. Sure, I’ll draw, take photos, write some seemingly meaningless quips but for right now I’m only committing to read some stuff I simply want to read.
We’re not talking about some serious philosophical or theological material. I’m thinking zines, comics, graphic novels, and over hyped young adult pieces. Not as lofty a goal as it sounded before, right? Oh well. Here goes nothing..
