The last six months or so have not been great for reading. So much of my reading energy has been taken up with trying to run and read for two book clubs. I've also been letting go of my old reading habit of forcing myself to finish a book I don't like. This year I probably started about five or six books that I eventually sent to the scrap heap without finishing, for one reason or another.
Although this year has been discouraging in terms of the number and quality of the books I've been reading, I'm optimistic about 2013. My goal as always is to continue to find quality books that I love and blog about them here. I hope soon to be back on track and I should have some new posts in the next few weeks.
Meanwhile, here's my 2012 reading in a nutshell:
My obsession of the year - SHERLOCK!
In the spirit of Sherlock, I will leave you with twelve clues as to what you'll see on this blog in the coming months. Check back next year to see which books matched the clues!
1. One First Lady
2. Two sets of magicians
3. Three ladies of Christmas
4. An intrepid woman reporter
5. The real lives of Downton Abbey
7. The secret history of a major city
8. A classic children's book I've never read
9. A very "viral" book
10. Lost books
11. A dear enemy
12. A prairie tale
