Kicking off the New Year

Welcome 2012! I've been excited for the new year. Often I rather lament the quick passage of time and the turning of the page to the new year, but this year I was ready. A fresh start sounds wonderful after a rather roller-coaster of a year in 2011. So, here we are.

What are you reading in 2012? I haven't given too much thought to my reading list yet. Right now, I'm reading Still Alice by Lisa Genova. And, I have a stack from the library, plus my Christmas books.

You might notice that the list of books read in 2011 is no longer in the sidebar...well, it actually is, but now it is a link instead of the whole list. So, if you want to see what all I completed this past year, click on the Books 2011 link. The grand total was 93, I think. I really enjoyed keeping track this past year. As I look back over the list, I can remember what was happening around the time I read most of the books.

So, once I finish a book in 2012, you'll see the new list in sidebar.

I would love to hear what's on your list for this year!!


  1. Thanks for the inspiration, again! I do enjoy reading...but I am just stuck finishing a biography about Amy Carmichael. I've got to finish it so that I can move on:). She is a fascinating woman, but for some reason I just have a hard time with biographies. Our pastor suggested we read 1 a year- I am picking a shorter one this year! Glad to see some suggestions. Maybe I should keep track of how many books I can finish this year.

  2. I totally stole your "pages" idea and did the same thing to my blog! Thanks for the tip (even if you didn't mean to have it be a tip...hehe). Excited for all the reading in 2012!
