Happy New Year!

It's another year to look forward to, with a list of books waiting for me to read them. Sadly, that includes the rest of the Nancy Drew series. I didn't make it too far on them last year. But Nancy Drew is forever, so eventually, I will make my goal and make it through the original series.

Right now I am reading two different books. Normally, I have my first book of the year all picked out am waiting to pick it up come New Year's Eve, but this year, I found myself in the middle of two books. The first one, I got for Christmas, and is a very interesting compilation of the columns Laura Ingalls Wilder wrote. They are quite an interesting mixture of advice on keeping a house and working a farm and life philosophy (she encourages napping. I knew I liked her.). The second book is Dewey, which is about a cat that is adopted by a library. That's the book club book for February. Neither are what I'd normally choose as my first book of the year, but I am enjoying both of them (though Dewey is a bit sappy for me).

I am going to try and keep this journal updated this year, because I definitely neglected it in 2008, which is actually kind of funny, because I read a lot and had plenty of books to discuss in 2008. To see what I read in 2008, you can find me on GoodReads and keep up with my list.

What are YOU kicking off the new year reading?

You have a pretty nice list of books there! I didn't know you were reading Fruits Basket. I gave up on that series because I got tired of buying a bunch of manga *lol* I'm re-reading a fantasy novel called the Ghatti's Tale by Gayle Greeno.

I LOVE furuba. I am almost done, there are only like two volumes left to come out! :) Furuba basically got me into back into anime and manga. I think Ihave heard of Ghatti's tale...does it have something to do with some kind of cat?

You should join GoodReads. It is so interesting to see what people are reading! :)
