Musing Mondays (Jan.3)

This week’s musing is a simple one to start off the new year…
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)?
Since I didn't do a very good job of keeping track of all the books I read in 2010, the best I can come up with is 65. I plan on doing a better job of keeping track this year, 2011. I didn't have a reading goal, I just read for entertainment and recreation, so never set a goal of how many I will read each year. I just try to enjoy the ones I do read.

I'm looking forward to reading for 2011, 3 books already on my TRB list are:
"The Weird Sisters" by Eleanor Brown, release February 2011. 
"Almost Home" by Mariah Stewart, release in Spring 2011.
"Harmony 3" by Jodi Thomas. I don't know what the title is yet, it is the third book in the Harmony series, release date is Fall of 2011.
"1105 Yakima Street" by Debbie Macomber. Release date September 2011.

As far as older books I have quite a few on my book shelves I hope to read this year. I would like to use the library more often this year, so if they have the books on my library list I will be reading them as well. 

I keep telling myself I'm not buying anymore books until I read some to these books on my book shelves. However, every time I'm in a store, and walk by the books one or more leaps off the shelf and jumps in my shopping cart. Unbelievable, I know, but it happens!

This month along with trying to keep up with My Reading Corner, I am doing a fun meme "31 Days In Picture" at my blog here. Why not pay me a visit and see what is happening over there.


  1. 2010 was the first time I ever kept track of the number of books I read and look forward to see how I do this year. Wtg on your 65!!

  2. I like the creative ways you "decorate" your blog. It's fun to visit.

    Thanks for visiting mine. Now I'm going over to check on the 31 Days in Pictures.

  3. You had a great reading year! I need to "check out" 31 days. . . .

  4. Thanks, @Laurel & Suko... for checking out 31 days, it's just a fun blog I like to do fun things on.

  5. LOL, I keep telling myself I have plenty of books to read...but I can't help myself, I always need more. It's a compulsion. Check out my Monday Musing for this week.

  6. I don't save books to read I read them as fast as I get them but I do read them over after about a year. Now with this e-reader how many are saved to read again don't know.

  7. Good luck with your goals!
    Here is my post - its my first time joining in :)

  8. I am behind on my Cedar Cove series (book 8). We (my mom, daughter and I) visited the town(s) that Debbie bases her series on and stopped by her tea room last fall. It was a delight.
