Booking Through Thursday

Happy New Year, everyone!

So … any Reading Resolutions? Say, specific books you plan to read? A plan to read more ____? Anything at all?

Name me at least ONE thing you’re looking forward to reading this year!

I think my one reading resolution is to honor all the commitments I make- which I'm sorry to say I did not do in 2008. I reviewed almost everything I agreed to, in a timely manner, but a couple of things did get away from me. The flip side is I am sure I will be making far fewer commitments. Right now I have two books I'm obligated to review, and one I have to read for a professional engagement- and that's fine. After those, it will take something exceptional to get my attention.

I'm looking forward to reading so many books this year. I just picked up Marina Lewycka's Strawberry Fields and Muriel Barbery's The Elegance of the Hedgehog- both are right at the top of my "want-to-reads"- not to mention all the great stuff I got for Christmas.

What's at the top of your want-to-reads for 2009?

I just remembered that I really want to read The 19th Wife. It's been languishing on my bookshelf because I have been too busy with other things, but I really want to settle into that one.

Happy New Year.

I have too many books on my shelf that I haven't read yet. If I can at least read half of them, its good enough for me already. Am looking forward to reading Confessions of a Fallen Angel which I just got from the bookstore.

I posted my next-11-books to read on my blog.

"Hedgehog" has been on my to-read list for awhile now. I am looking forward to seeing what you think of it.

Happy New Year!
