So if you spend much time at this blog, you know I really enjoy reading. In 2011 much of my reading was the Bible, and from the birth of my baby on my Bible reading was done during nighttime feedings. When choosing books for review (provided by a publisher at no cost to me) I chose books I thought I would really enjoy, and for the most part I did. This year I will likely review for publishers even less as my time is more limited these days with three children. (But don't hold your breath...) At the same time I have bunches of books on my shelves (or in a stack) that I would like to read.
Throughout the year, I will be participating in the Reading to Know Book Club. You can read about the book I picked for November here. I have already begun the January selection...it's good, but not a quick read!
Also in January, I will participate in the Lucy Maud Montgomery reading challenge also hosted by Reading to Know. I will share this picture book with my daughter. I was delighted to find it used! We also recorded a black and white version of Anne that I intend to watch along with the Megan Follows version that I now own on dvd.
In October I will thoroughly enjoy the Maud Hart Lovelace reading challenge hosted by A Library is a Hospital for the Mind. I got the Betsy-Tacy Treasury for Christmas, you know! (Below I'm showing it to my daughter.) I'd like to read more of her non-Betsy-Tacy works, too.

I will be taking my Bible reading slowly this year and look to learn and grow (unlike last year when I read the whole Bible). I can't wait to read Unbroken. It seems to be everyone's favorite book of the year for those who read it last year. Based on Carrie's review, I also want to read Lit! A Christian Guide to Reading Books Another popular book, it seems, was Entwined. So those books and some from my shelves and just a handful of well-selected reviews.
