Pick up a good book
Remember that one day you spent on the beach lost in a good book? Yeah, we barely do either. A few of us here are self-professed bookworms while others are looking to carve some time out in the coming year to read more often.
Dave Ormesher, closerlook’s CEO, would like to find more time to read fiction in 2018. In addition, Liz Mitchell would like to tap into her inner bookworm.
“I’d like to find more time to read, which all starts with finding good books to read. Once I’m hooked on one, I’m in. But I wish I had a better method of finding those good ones besides word of mouth.” - Liz Mitchell, Senior Marketing Manager

Check out an audiobook
Many of us, especially Ryan Mason, also find listening to audiobooks to be an easy way to fit “reading a book” into our daily routines.
“I've been horrible about reading long-form books—be it fiction or nonfiction. This year I've consumed several long-form books as audiobooks while commuting to and from work. I'd love to keep that going.”
-Ryan Mason, Chief Creative Officer
For those wanting to give audiobooks a try without the commitment, Audible offers a free 30-day trial. In addition, you can download many audiobooks and e-books for free from the public library.
