I did it! 100 books in 2011. Goodreads provides this handy little graphic on members' Stats page. I love the visual. Most of the books I read were 4 stars with 9 books marked as 5 stars. That's some good readin'.
From this graphic, I see that I borrowed a lot of books thanks to my great library. I'm so lucky to have such a resource close at hand and now with digital borrowing it's even better. I'd like to make the Canadian piece of the pie bigger in 2012.
The ebook slice of the pie is a nice size and I suspect that it will be bigger this time next year. Santa left a Kobo Touch under the tree for me! I'm enjoyed using it this week while reading Ragnarok by A.S. Byatt. It's taking some getting used to and I'm still figuring it out but I'm liking it.
I also got a couple of books for Christmas too: Love Begins in Winter by Simon Van Booy (I loved Everything Beautiful Began After, it was a 5 star) and Good Evening, Mrs Craven by Mollie Panter-Downes (a Persephone book).
We had a wonderful Christmas here. It was a white Christmas which was a nice surprise. The day before Christmas Eve it started snowing. It was beautiful. My family and I took a walk while it snowed. It was a wonderful quiet moment before the season really began. We've been busy ever since.
Sometime soon I'll make my own Best Of 2011 list (I've seen a few around already) but for now I just want to wish you all a...
Happy New Year!
