A very happy New Year to everyone who reads my blog – I hope 2013 is a happy and successful year for you in what ever you do. It is just under a year since I migrated my old blog over from LiveJournal to WordPress, and I am very glad that I did. Thank you to everyone who had helped to make my new blog rather more successful than my old one. In blogging terms it is still early days – and I hope in 2013 I will able to engage with even more enthusistic readers and bloggers. I am so grateful to everyone who comments on my posts and I do hope you continue to do so, it is always great to get some feedback.
So it is January 1st a brand new year. What does 2013 look like? Well for now at least we have blue skies and no rain, which is a rather good start after the epic rain we have been subjected to the last couple of weeks. I do wonder though what books will come my way in this new year. 2012 was a good year, and I can only hope 2013 is at least as good.
First up of course is my month of re-reading – and I have some great books lined up to read this month. There may well be another month of re-reading in July, but that may depend on the state of the TBR – which is rather dreadful at the monent. Also in 2013 is the Barbara Pym centenary, I along with other fans in the Librarything Virago group are going to be reading her books in publication order. If you want to join in the schedule is here.
I am not making any more bookish pledges just now – although common sense would suggest that I try not to buy any more books for a while. I am not making any promises though, my addiction is as bad as ever – I just have no more room on my very untidy TBR shelves – so I am planning to not buy anything during January which is my month of re-reading – when I’ll be reading nothing from my TBR (gulp).
This is how the TBR looks today ( several more books the camera has missed) – please tell me if yours is worse it’ll make me feel better.
