A Book for Every Resolution

Happy New Year, you beautiful bags of friendship!

Here’s hoping you got everything you wanted for whatever holiday you celebrate (Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Feast of Sweet Satan, Lebron James’ birthday, etc.), and that you didn’t fall into an open manhole and break your femur. (How does that always happen to you?)

In either case, we’re here for you, amigos… Our new resolution-themed window has everything you need to either a) keep your lucky streak going, or b) get your life back on track while your leg heals:

Hot mama! Look at all those potential resolutions! You’re probably wondering how we came up with them.
Would you believe that we consulted a pool of bespectacled social scientists, dubiously-licensed life coaches, honorary doctors, and weathered ship captains (who seemed taciturn and irascible at first, but proved to have kind, caring hearts buried deep beneath their gruff exteriors and bright yellow rain jackets)? Not buying it? Good instinct. Our graphic designer and assistant manager actually came up with the list while eating spicy tacos and talking about that scene in “Harry and the Hendersons,” where Harry has to go back to the – oh wait – that’s probably a spoiler, huh? (If you want to find out more about the scene, email our assistant manager.)

Okay, where were we? Ah yes – your new Book Soup-approved resolutions... Here they are in all their glory - each bold, each brave, and each linked to a pertinent book that will keep your cat's pajamas as wet as a whistle, or however the expression goes:




 "Get out of here, Harry! GO!"    



Yazoo! If those links don’t get your hemoglobin pumping, I don’t know what will!

Well, what’re you waiting for? Do you really want to redesign your apartment, kill your spouse, and/or start a big ol' revolution, or what? Don’t let these become another batch of passionate resolutions that get discarded by February, like a delicious chocolate-covered Snickers bar that you buy in January and discard by February!

Make sure that this year is different! - Like Henry Ford always said, “Who cares if you fell in a stupid manhole? Dust yourself off, arm yourself to the teeth with books, and build your future with suicidal gumption and butterscotch dreams!”
