This is the first book I have read this year. It is a good read and well written. I enjoyed it and loved the end of the story.
One of my goals year is to read novels, I did not set a limit so I have accomplished that goal. I am already on my second book, but need to get in some work related reading too. I have found out when I read for entertainment, it makes the reading of my texts for work go that much faster and easier.
I read this interesting stat on my Facebook roll this morning from someone at our local radio station… I was just reading that 1 in 4 adults didn’t read any books last year… I first heard this from John Piper, he said that in reading just 15 minutes a day, you could easily knock off a 200 page book a month… just think of where you could go in a year having read 12 books! – Scott
Looks like the book has been made into a movie, can’t wait to see it.
So, is reading books one of your goals for this year? How many books do you normally read in a year? Do you think movies are ever as good as the book?
So anyway, I have been gone for a month. Not literally, just from this blog. It all started this fall when my computer kept re-booting with error messages. Something about bad drivers, etc. Well, it finally crashed completely at the beginning of December… Hubby did get a new computer going and it is slowly getting back up to speed. Still need to re-install my Silhouette and printer and then I might get back to crafting too!
2010 has been a good year and hopefully 2011 will follow suit. I don’t know the direction I want this little blog to take, it will still probably be mostly a family journal but maybe I will post more about my diet efforts and other goals I have planned for myself.
Speaking of diets I was able to lose about 70 pounds last year and hope to continue down that path. I have put a lot back on this past couple of weeks but will be jumping back on the bandwagon tomorrow. I am following the Atkins diet as that seems to be the only plan that really works for my body.
The other goal I have for myself this year is to read more novels. I read blogs, I read magazines, I read books for my work but no fun novels… That is going to change this year. I have already requested through our library 10 of Amazon’s top 100 books for 2010. Even if I only get around to reading 10 that is 10 more than last year. Here is the link to the customer favorites that I am getting my suggestions from, Amazon Customer Top 100 Books for 2010.
The other goals will be to craft, make thrifty buys and continue to declutter the house.
