New Year

Happy New Year everyone! I hope 2014 brings you everything you wish for and deserve, both in books and in everything else!
Today is the perfect opportunity to re-resurrect my blogging. No looking back on the past, just forward to the future. The past few weeks I have been thinking about how I want to proceed with my reading life and while I have decided that formal review-type posts are not for me I still want to keep up with the blog. This will be a repeat of things I have already said but I do like to put down in words what I like/dislike about books and I also really enjoy the community of friends that I have found thanks to my blog (I had the great pleasure of spending a day in Amsterdam with one of these friends, Judith from Leeswammes, last month and it was a highlight of my year).

So I can’t promise how often I will post, but I will post.  My current plan is simply to post each time I have finished a book, with its description, a summary, and my thoughts on it.  Some books might prompt me to write more, but I think that is something I can realistically manage.

And I have also made a reading resolution for myself:  Read the books that I already have on my shelves or on my e-reader.  I thought about counting how many that is, and I may still do so, but I’m a bit afraid of the number –  I’m going to guess it is between 250 and 300.  That’s unread books.  I won’t say that I will not buy any new books this year, but I am going to make a true effort to limit those purchases; I will be attending Booktopia in Boulder, CO, in May (and hopefully in Asheville, NC, in August) so when the author lineup is announced I will likely purchase those featured books, and if Rohinton Mistry should publish a new novel this year (PLEASE PLEASE) I will be all over that.  When I see a book that interests me I will simply put it in on my wishlist and be patient (easier said than done).

Now, back to reading!

    Oh, I do hope you will post regularly again, Suzanne! I want to know what’s happening in your bookish life and what books you recommend. I very much enjoyed our day in Amsterdam, too. I hope you’ll meet many more blogging friends this year! Happy reading (and blogging).

  3. SO Wonderful! Psst… I’m so jealous you are going to Boulder! I know it will be super fun!

    I look forward to your posts Suzanne. And, have an outstanding year of reading. I hope to find time time this week to do some strategic thinking about I would like to accomplish in reading and blogging. Similar to you, I’ve got a basket full of unread magazines to exhaust before I get to read other treasures.
