Happy New Year! I have routinely resolved at the New Year that I’d like to read more, and to read more intentionally. (Of course, a major part of my job as a history professor is reading, and much of that reading is pleasurable, but I am talking about the kind of non-professional reading I do in the evenings or on weekends.) My Baylor colleague Alan Jacobs encourages us to embrace the freedom to read at whim, but I also suspect many of us would find it a relief to have some sort of reading plan, to help us create order out of the millions of possible reading choices.
