Since getting into blogging and finding the realm of book bloggers, I have been so happy with the directions my reading has taken and one of my favorite things is to look back over my 'books read' list and see what wonders have crossed my path and the emotion I still have towards them.
Goodreads is my favorite place to keep track of my reading, but my daughters gave me a leather journal in 2004 for Mother's day and I've used it as a book log every since. It is this journal that I simply love to get down and reflect on, especially on New Years Day when I talley up my books and put a new year's heading in. And I look to see what books most affected me.

The others that I KNOW will be on this years READ list that I'm super excited for:
But most of all I'm looking forward to HOPEFULLY blogging these and having my life be calm enough to do that with regularity! :)
I hope you come along with me!!
