Favorite books of 2009 and reading resolutions have filled the book blog world this week, and I was thinking about adding my extensive thoughts about these things to the maddening din and then decided that I really only have one resolution and don’t want to actually list out all the books I’ve read this year – which comes to a shameful 57 and 4 of them are the Twilight series. Yikes.
This year may not actually be any better on the number of books front – what with a new baby on the way – but there is one resolution I’d like to make and keep, which is to actually BLOG (imagine that) about ALL the books that I read. I often spend so much time trying to come up with something substantive to say that by the time I have determined my substantive thought, the drive to share it has flown the coop. Perhaps this resolution will also bring about a slightly higher frequency of blog posting, which I’m sure my loyal readers will appreciate.
With that, I sign off, but plan to return tomorrow – barring debut of baby – with a few thoughts about Elizabeth Kostova’s newest book, The Swan Thieves.
