Twenty-three books. That's barely two a month. I used to read three times that many books in a year -- or more. Sigh. This is also sad -- I was so bad at keeping up with what I read here on the blog I had to go check my Goodreads account to make sure I remembered everything.
I did read quite a variety, from a story about the recent past that reflects my own, a young adult novella, a homemaking manual, some beautiful works of fiction from Wangerin and O'Connor, some encouraging parenting reads, some old favorites, and a new book about a particular Baltimore cake shop. Maybe I'll share some thoughts on those in a later post. Maybe.
This year my resolution is to watch less TV and try to read more often. I also plan to keep myself accountable to writing about what I read, especially by Blogging for Books.
Look for a review of Michael Spencer's book from me in the next few days. I finished it last night and need some time to weigh my words.
Happy reading, 2011! May you be filled with many more than this meager list!
