I've also just hit the landmark of 100 followers, which I'm really pleased about. It felt daunting at first getting my blog out there, but the effort has definitely paid off.
In 2011, I hope to become a bit more organised with my blog. I won't be completing any reading challenges as I change my mind a lot about what I want to read, but I will be keeping better track of what I have read and hopefully adding some new features to my blog. I also hope to read a good proportion of classics.
Aside from my blog, I hope to be a bit less consumerist in 2011. I've been sale shopping over the past few days and seeing how people push and shove past others just to get at more stuff has left a bit of a bad taste in my mouth. I have enough stuff. I'm going to try out only buying what I need, and then treating myself on a fortnightly basis to something small I don't need. I'll be using my library more and reading the books I already have. I'll be cooking dinners from scratch most evenings (I do this anyway, I've just been a bit naughty with the takeouts). My Lovefilm account is going to be used properly so I don't buy anymore DVDs. Eating out and going out is fine, it's physical stuff that I'm hoping to tackle and the whole feeling of "I've had a bad day so I'm going to go and buy something to cheer myself up".
Unfortunately I didn't keep a track of all the books I read this year, though I'm guessing I'm somewhere in the region of 65. Here are the top-rated books from my blog:
Small Island by Andrea Levy
Remarkable Creatures by Tracy Chevalier
Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov
Mother Tongue by Bill Bryson
