Is it too late for a New Year’s resolution? February 15, 2009

I added a page today, entitled “Books Read in 2009”.  Around December I read a lot of blogs where people made goals for the number of books they wanted to read.  I thought about doing that, but I do read a lot as it is so I didn’t know how many books to make a goal versus the number I actually read.  So I’m making a list, almost more for myself although anybody is welcome to look.  Apparently this morning I finished number 7, although I don’t honestly know if I have forgotten any.  I went through a phase in January where I read a bunch of Ann Rinaldi books, which are all middle-school aged books about early American history.  They’re really cute, goofily-romantic, and a fun read.  Thus so far these are conquering my list, but I’m curious to see by the end of the year how my list looks.  I’m predicting it will be mostly young adult/juvenile novels since I do read a lot of things I think my students might read or might like.

In other news, knitting is going slowly.  I got up to the cable paneling on Corona, but then G put in some special orders before he goes to Germany in 3 weeks so I’m at the crown of a Raleigh Hills Hat for him.  I want to make him a scarf and matching hat set too, but I haven’t settled on anything manly.  I may just mail it to him there.

    Oooh, good question, I’m going through the same thing! Realistically, I suppose that any time is a good time to make some changes in your life.

    And can I recommend Holes as a really fantastic piece of young adult literature? I’m one of the most advanced readers I know and it’s still a favorite 🙂

    Good luck with the knitting!
