I can't believe that Christmas is coming so quickly! I'm very excited, and looking forward to spending some time with my family. Next week, I will be listing my Top 10 favorite books of 2011, Top 3 Canadian reads, Top 5 YA reads, Top 5 Adult Fiction reads, and Top 5 books I wish I had time for.
2011 was a great year for reading and blogging. I moved my blog from Iweb to blogger, which was very difficult but much needed. Iweb will be discontinued in 2012, and I really had so many problems with it. I've been enjoying blogger, and don't plan to move any time soon. All my posts have been moved at this point, which makes me very happy.
This year seems to have been the year for the ereader. Now more than ever, I see ereaders everywhere. That makes me happy because I know people are reading. While I will always own books, I think I really embraced the ereading experience this year. I love the ease of use and the fact that I can always have a collection of books with me. My first reader was a Sony 505 and I barely use it. It always seemed like the books I wanted weren't available, or not available in Canada. I'm happy that this is no longer an issue for me.
In 2012, I have some blogging goals that I would like to accomplish. I really want to work on my reviews, I want to try and make them better. A little less personal, but give my opinion. I also think I'm going to go back to a rating. I don't like giving numberical ratings, but I want to categorize them somehow.
One of my main goals to to bring attention to 2012 debut adult fiction authors. I have a database set up, and will probably do a monthly post about which books are out, or coming out. I'm excited to review these books as well, and will probably try and get some interviews.
My goal was to read 75 books this year, and I was able to surpass this goal. Now, I need to commit to a higher number for 2012!
I hope 2011 has been great for all my readers, and I want to thank everyone for coming to my blog.
