Another year of books

“Perhaps there is some secret sort of homing instinct in books that brings them to their perfect readers. How delightful if that were true.” (The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society)

Another year of fabulous reading is almost at an end! I was wretchedly ill on Christmas, but still managed to enjoy the day reading (and rereading and rereading) Scout’s horde of new books (more just kept appearing under the tree, I don’t know how it happened). Once she went down for her nap, I pored over the absolutely stunning illustrations of my very own Illustrated Harry Potter, thanks to my wonderful husband who tolerates and indulges in my deeply rooted obsession.

I love that Goodreads gives me a visual at the end of each year showing which books I’ve read. If you’re interested, you can see my Year in Books here–not counting, of course, the scads of pictures books I’ve read aloud all year. Let me tell you, folks, I’m getting pretty darn good at Fox in Socks.

Here’s to all the books that will change our lives in 2016!



  1. Yay for a fabulous reading year!!! Boo that you were sick on Christmas. I hope you’ve scared away the illness. I’ll have to check out the Goodreads thing. I’m still hoping to squeak in another few reads. I finished one yesterday. And today. And hopefully tomorrow or Wednesday. And who knows? Maybe I’ll spend Christmas Eve devouring another one or two. šŸ™‚ That sounds like a perfect way to ring in the new year to me!
