Could I possibly?

I have just done a bit of browsing through friends' blogs. Lots of folks reflecting on the last year and planning for this year. And I have to confess that I am jealous. Not jealous of people's life as such: I'm pretty sure that I am doing as God would have me do. What I'm jealous of is people's book lists.

I love reading but I can count on one hand how many books I have managed to get through in the last twelve months. I miss the days of commuting when I could get through a book in a couple of days..

But I'm not going to wallow. I'm going to try and do something about it. I'm going to try and read for an hour a day. I have no idea if I can actually do, and I know that something has got to give if I am going to do it. But lets face it, you only need to watch a half hour of breakfast telly and I can eat and read at the same time..

Watch this space for book reviews..

What are you planning on reading? Want any suggestions?

That's really funny. The exact same thing motivated me into my book a week target for 2011. I needed the challenge to help me make the time. Funnily enough you are always someone I think of as a big reader. Hope you enjoy your newly set aside hour each day x

Liz: might actually need to do some study reading!

Carla: you're right. I used to be a BIG reader, especially when I was doing BR stuff. I wonder if my tapering off is partly cos I live in a non reading community.. very few books around here.. But we can change that!
