My Reading Resolutions for 2016

Blade Runner
The books I read are my “usual suspects”.

My Scandinavian mysteries, favorite authors, popular histories.

But, the other day I was reading yet another reference to the making of yet another media adaptation of another Philip K. Dick story.

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sleep?
Blade Runner is one of my all-time favorite movies. 

And yet, I have not read Philip K. Dick’s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? the basis for Blade Runner.

And just like that, I decided.

Resolution No. 1 :

I have to read some Philip K. Dick this year.

Another favorite movie of mine is Jean Cocteau's 1946 Belle et La Bête or Beauty and the Beast. Again, I have always wanted to read the original French fairy tale. Actually, I have always wanted to read some fairy tales.

Belle et Bete

Resolution No. 2:

Read a collection of classic fairy tales that includes Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont’s Beauty and the Beast.


And . . .

Classic Fairy Tales
Resolution No. 3:

Not to make too many resolutions.

Happy reading in 2016!
