Happy New Year! That is my bunny Annabel Lee, who says Happy New Year to you!
I hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday. Thank you to everyone who took time out of their busy schedules to stop by my blog and participate in the Five Days of Christmas giveaways.
2013 has started and I'm hoping this year will be a wonderful year for all of us.
Here are a few of my New Years Resolutions:
Read the TBR pile!
I'm super excited about this. Usually, I'm focused on the next new book, what everyone is talking about, the beginning of a new series, etc. It's easy to get wrapped up in the excitement! But what about all those amazing books on my TBR list that are being ignored? What about all those books I keep saying "I'll get around to this...someday" and someday doesn't come? Well someday is here! This year I will mostly be reading from my TBR pile, and keeping a happy husband by getting some of these mounds of books out of the house.
Included are some of these:
Say goodbye to NetGalley guilt!
That's right. If you're a blogger you know NetGalley. NetGalley is a wonderful website where you can be approved to write reviews on books before they are published. I have a few, ok a lot, of books I need to catch up on. I do have every intention of reading them and I think this is the year to make a huge dent, catching up on older titles and keeping up to date with current releases.
Did I mention I will be reading more physical books this year? Well, I can't keep all of them! So be on the lookout for more giveaways this year than ever before!
I say this every year, but it really is my biggest problem. I love buying books. I love hardcover first editions. I love the feel of hardcover, when you open the book for the very first time. I love getting books signed. But this year I'm really going to cut back. Now that I'm telling all of you that, I have to be serious!
I have some rules in place. I know it will be hard, but I'm very determined to read through my TBR pile and not add, too much, to it! I mean, a little bit won't hurt... :)
I'm a knitter but I've fallen behind! You may see a post or two this year about my knitting and trying to keep me on track. I have a lot of yarn and a lot of projects to complete so I will be focusing on that this year too.
And who knows, maybe they'll be a hand knit item with a book giveaway! Just saying.
Visit blogs more often!
This is a big one for me. Sometimes things get crazy and I forget to visit my favorite blogs and leave comments. I'd really like to keep up with more blogs this year. I enjoy blogging and like to meet other bloggers so this will be a fun, social resolution to complete
Anywhoo, that is it for me!
Thanks for taking the time to read and tell me, what are your New Years Resolutions?
