Read more! Write less!


When I was going through Google’s aggregation on 2012 resolutions, I was kinda thinking what could be mine this year. Checking into a gym? Learning Guitar, honestly? Not to appear on stages anymore, not to commit with any of the rubbish debates, poetry sort of things which I recently pushed into. I am gonna let all these go and sticking with what I know better. That’s reading! So I named it, year 2013, “Read more, Write less” and most importantly cut the crap.

Part of this “read more” resolution has its offspring resolutions. I will and always build my home library bigger and bigger while keeping the “read books” percentage more than 60% (which is now hanging around that mark anyway). I got about 100 books in my shelf, and it keeps growing every month.

Putting down the resolutions here in public, only to come back next year and see whether I really stood honest to it.

  • Read two books a month (English and Tamil each)
  • Read at least couple of old English classics (pride and prejudice).
  • Buy two books a month (January I already bought “Still counting deaths” and iSteve)
  • Write a book review every month (That will be in my Tamil language website


Lets see how it goes! Wish me all the best friends!!


  1. Nice ones.. It inspires me to have my own resolutions.. Better have a backup plan to catch up with the deadlines :)

  2. All the best machi. But your Write less part is kind of interfering in our Read more right as Padalay readers. so please don't be too harsh on that part. Read and share!
    Good luck!
