It’s the last Monday of the year and time for Book Journey’s fabulous weekly posting “It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?”
The holiday brought a good reading week – I hoped to finish up both Amor Towles’ Rules of Civility and The Widow Clicquot: The Story of a Champagne Empire and the Woman Who Ruled It by Tilar Mazzeo — and I did. I also started Kurt Anderson’s True Believers because I needed something to read on my Paperwhite in the dark (since The Widow was a paper book, how novel right, haha – sorry I shouldn’t end the year with a bad pun, or any pun really).
My final reading numbers were not as great as I had hoped for the year – it just got away from me. But I am back to the blog and back to more regular reading. For 2013 I hope to finish up at least 50 non-school/thesis books. It’s a tall order, but one I am committed to trying to reach. And I commit to more posts and more commenting on your blogs. I appreciate all the feedback I get from you, and promise to stay more in touch with you all.
Now, what to have as my first start-to-finish read in 2013?
What about you? What are you reading, and what will you start your New Year reading?
