Sunday Reads: Volume 12

Welcome to this week’s Sunday Reads! 

This was a good week! I signed up for the Bout of Books 3.0, but managed to read less than the norm for the week (even though it looks like a lot). I’m working hard on getting my TBR pile (bookcase) down! So far … so good!

Canada — at least my part of the country — is going to get colder, but we’ve had such a lack of snow. We really need some moisture up here, so if anyone can send snow, please do!

I’ve been trying to think of new things to do with the blog, what with January already being half over. Maybe a few written articles? I’ll work on it, I promise! This year, though, I think it’s going to be all about the networking & getting to know other bloggers. How does that sound? 🙂

This past week, I read: 

1. Mockingjay, by Suzanne Colins

2. Room, by Emma Donaghue

3. Marley & Me, by John Grogan

4. Chocolat, by Joanne Harris

5. Little Blog on the Prairie, by Cathleen Davitt Bell

6. The Man In My Basement, by Walter Mosley

What I’m currently reading:

1. The Historian, by Elizabeth Kostova

This week, I plan to read:

1. Me and My Manny, by M.A. MacAfee (for review)

2. The Virgin Cure, by Ami McKay

3. First Date, by Krista McGee (for review)

What are you reading this week?

The Dreaming of Books Giveaway is over at I Am a Reader, Not a Writer – there’s close to 200 blogs participating, so you better enter!

I see there’s a read-along going on for the The Great Gatsby over at Unputdownables – anyone know of any other good readalongs coming up? I’ve never participated before, but think it would be a great way to read some of the books that have been on my shelf. Anyone have any advice for participating in a read-along?

I never really talked about goals in my last Sunday post, but kind of touched upon it with this one. I plan to read a lot this year, try to reach out to other bloggers and participate more, and maybe try and get the hang of the blog so I don’t feel so far behind!

What are your blogging/reading goals this year? Anything you’d like to share?

If I hadn’t spent a day in December organizing my library, I would have had that as one of my resolutions. Whenever my husband and I talk about our future house, my books are always taken into consideration. God knows how many I’ll have by then! How do you guys like these home libraries?




How do you keep your books at home? Are they neat and ordered? Or in random piles? Do you catalogue or keep track of what you have? 

Happy reading!
