Happy New Year, everyone!
So … any Reading Resolutions?
Well, I have thought about this quite a bit after reading other people's blogs and seeing what everyone else has been reading. I've noticed that I tend to stay in a certain genre for too long and I haven't incorporated more genres into my reading lists. This is something that I would certainly like to change for 2009!! I also stepped up to the plate and entered myself into several reading challenges. I'm really looking forward to participating in these as it will make me "branch out" and read books that I might have passed up. I would also like to become a more astute reader. So I'm going to really question myself during my reading journeys and try to make sure that I'm getting the deeper meaning and am not just skimming it!! This I believe will be my hardest challenge for myself!
Say, specific books you plan to read?
I most definitely want to read Mansfield Park, Pride and Prejudice, Emma, Northanger Abbey, and Persuasion. I love Jane Austen and I want to read these this year! I will no longer tell myself that looking at them is good enough!! LOL!!
A plan to read more ____?
Well, I've read 106 books this year, so I already think I read a lot. But I noticed that I can find all kinds of ways to waste time and when I look back at how I spent my time I have lots of regrets!! I want to cut down my television time for sure!!!
Name me at least ONE thing you’re looking forward to reading this year!
Anna Karenina!! That will be in February and I will definitely have Cliff Notes for it!! Plus all the other stuff from Oprah's website!
I want to say a big heartfelt THANKS to all my blogging friends who have taken the time to read my blog and to leave me comments. I've never had so much fun on the computer until this past year. Each and every one of you have added so much to my life!! I love reading your blogs and getting a glimpse into your worlds. Thanks for sharing. Here's hoping that 2009 will bring all you much happiness, prosperity, good health, fun times, and great books!!!
