|Our first book read for|
the Fuller's Group
I have been thinking a lot about next year's reading goals. Since I seem to finally be succeeding at some of my goals after 6 decades no sense in stopping now.
I have some TBR books on the shelves and of course all of my Penguin books stare at me. I am in a book club at Fuller's book shop so that will keep me up on some of the modern literature going around.
I also have not done any Read-Alongs before. So I am not putting up any lists yet for the coming year but I am going to dig deeper into the ideas. I am starting with a trial run with Jane Austen's Emma in December this year. I am looking forward to it.
|Lots of penguins|
marching around my house.
*Read the books for the book group and enjoy the discussions. This always ensures I read books I normally wouldn't choose which is always interesting.
*Join in some of the Read-A-Longs. There are many of these that happen throughout the year from people on my Blogroll. I have subscribed to all those listed on my blogroll so I get the emails immediately telling me when a post has come. I am finding it easier to keep up with people, allowing me to make more comments on their blog. That in turn increases visitors and conversation and that is fun.
Then I think there will be a category called Accidental Finds. These are the books you read about in someone else's blog, a review in a book, some book that flies down from the clouds and hits you in the face. The books that are "accidentally in your life". That will offer spontaneity.
|Cousin Eddie is having his|
second birthday on Sunday.
He will be 2 years old.
I think these three areas are a good starting point.
I will also continue to post up any posts re: Penguin Hunting excursions and finds.
Of course I will keep people up on my cats and dogs as that seems to be a drawing card of interest. We all love each other's pets.
I might put up the odd photo-art I am working on developing skills in this new found interest. I think that sums it.
I'll include book happenings and miscellaneous events happening around me in Tasmania as I love people to learn about this state and my life here. Maybe you'll visit and allow me to show you parts of it.
|Always finding something to do.|
So here's for fine tuning these goals as we get closer to that magical date of 1 January, 2016.
* Book Club Books
* Accidental Books
I'm so impressed that you're planning 2016 already!! I think you'll really enjoy ATLWCS too.ReplyDelete
I use feedly to keep track of everyone's latest posts. I can filter them into folders for days of the week or categories like Aussie bloggers, classics club folk etc. I have an app for it as well as a tab on my laptop.
it keeps my email from overflowing :-)
I hope to see you on some of the same readalongs next year.
Thanks Bron a, I use feed lyrics too but sometimes the little app gets lost. It is a great app though. I didn't realise you can sort things into days of the week. So many apps , so little time. Haha. I am looking forward to some read along and chatting to other bloggers☕Delete
There is somthing missing on this blog: a little logo to say "I like".... :)ReplyDelete
Usually I am against readalongs and such events but if you use them to increase discussions and not to writte your own review in your corner of the world, there I agree with you. But you are quite unique then!
And I am like you: I would like Xmas away and gone and starting a fresh new year full of re-reads and gossip^about things occurring in my life on the other side of the earth from you: http://camilledefleurville.blogspot.fr/
Thanks for your comment.I am happy to look at your blog too. I am not good at doing in depth book reviews. I do like to talk about the books though and simply pick out parts I enjoyed and to know others enjoyed the same book. Much like a big global book group. I want to enjoy reading the book without feeling I need to take lots of notes in order to get a review out of it. Others are able to do it easily appears but I am ot one of them. I hope to hear from you again, all the best for Christmas. 😁Delete
