My Goal for 2011

I'm not one to embrace resolutions. If there is an activity or habit that I want to stop or continue I will. But this year I have a goal. A real goal that I am going to share with you all and hopefully that will keep me on track.

My goal is.....

To read 100 books in 2011.

I know. It's not that lofty of a goal, but if you think about it it's about two books a week. I work six days a week between my two libraries and I have a lot of shows that I enjoy watching on TV but I'm really going to focus on reading more. Also, since I've started at the school I'm increasing my YA reading a bit so I can be more familiar with what my students are reading. I actually read about five YA books in the last few days of 2010 but I can't count those towards my total :( So far I've already finished one and am in the middle of two others so I'm hoping to get those done within the next couple of days.

So here is my list so far:

1. The Seventh Witch by Shirley Damsgaard
I started this series because it was about a librarian and it had that super natural feel to it. I heard that this is the last one in the series and that makes me a bit sad. I enjoyed the characters and it's a really fast read. I love historical familial ties of magic that run through Abby and Ophelia and I especially loved that the characters go back to their home towns and we can really see their heritage.

WOOT one down! :)

I applaud your goal because I made the exact same one. Good luck, and feel free to nag me when you catch me watching cooking shows in the staff room.
