In my third day of posting for the NaBloPoMo “daily posting” event, I am musing. About life, about family, about social connections.
Which brings me to a reinstated event that I’ve enjoyed called Monday Musings, by Miz B at Should Be Reading.
A question posed for this week:
How many books did you read in 2010? If you had a reading goal, did you meet it? What books are you most looking forward to reading for 2011 (either new, OR ones that have sat on your shelves for a while)?
I was very happy with what I accomplished in 2010. I read and reviewed 143 books. Only 66 of those were from my TBR stacks, which was one of my goals for 2010. However, since I’ve decreased the numbers on that stack to 96, I am quite pleased. I know that I won’t just read from the stacks this year, because I have newer stacks (not included in the original stacks count!), and I have been getting review books to read as well.
But I plan to mix it up enough that I will substantially reduce the old stacks, while still enjoying new and review books.
I plan to have better organization with my challenges (2010 was a bit confusing, since I posted on several different sites). In 2011, all of my challenges will be on my Curl up and Read site.
One of my challenges is the Awesome Author event, so I’ll have the opportunity to explore authors that are new to me.
What are your goals? Were you happy with your 2010 reading? I hope you’ll stop by.
And for a quick family moment:
Despite the ending of the holidays, I plan to spend more time with family members this year.
Some will have to connect via e-mail, Skype, and Facebook, but whatever it takes…Family is Forever!
