Finally...

I think I have the hang of this now. :-)
I joined NetGallery recently & now I have many books to review.
Mostly I want to practice my book reviewing/writing skills. And if
Anyone reads what I've written, I hope it's useful.
First review soon so check back!

Another year goes by..

I tried to post via my iPad last night, but it would not let me type in this field for some reason....

Anyway, another year has gone by and the last six months have been quite challenging. I am totally ready for this year to go nice and smooth; peaceful even. But we shall see. The only goals (not resolutions) that I'm setting for myself this year are keeping in touch with old/new friends (don't be such a hermit), get back into cross-stitching and genealogy, and read all the books I have to read for my book clubs (which I tend to slack on because I ALWAYS find other things to read too).

So far this year, I have read 'Matched' by Ally Condy (great YA dystopia), 'The Emperor's Tomb' by Steve Berry (action fiction that I thoroughly enjoy), and 'The Jane Austen Book Club' by Karen Joy Fowler (for my Jane Austen Book Club :-D).

I'd love to do more book challenges--but if I do, I don't think I will actually join/post. I might just set the goal of, say, reading 12 books this year for an historical fiction challenge, or read 1 Printz winner per month. I think this is the only way I could do it since I just don't blog too often. But maybe that'll change. Now I have 2 SciFi books to read for a club, an historical fiction one, and a teen one by the end of the month---in addition to professional reading and fun reading.

Too much???? Probably....
