2010 Round Up

Again, I've been neglectful, but I plan to start fresh for 2011. I wanted to take a few moments here on New Year's Eve to comment on a few things about 2010 and the upcoming year.

My most exciting book-related news for 2010 is that I met and exceeded my reading goal. I started out with a goal of reading 48 books, and I ended up reading 53! I'm thrilled with my success and know that it has something to do with making a concrete goal and making it public.

To give myself a bit more of a challenge, I'm going to set a goal of 60 books in 2011. I've seen a few people actually write out a list of books that that want to read for the year, so I'm going to do that next week. However, I won't put the full 60 books on the list because I know that I'll be inspired to read new books throughout the year. Any suggestions for titles I should add to my list.

Please visit my "books read in 2010" tab for a full list of all the books I read this year. I will be writing about many of them in the coming weeks.

I hope everyone has had a blessed 2010 and I send you all best wishes for 2011.
