A New Year, a New Resolution

So. Where does one start when they are starting a brand new blog and are brand new to the blogging world? I'm an experienced reader of blogs, but this year, I've decided to aim higher than to just read blogs, this year, I am going to write a blog! I've been thinking about doing this for months now, but as a new year was approaching us and there was lots of talk going around about new year's "resolutions", I decided to make this my primary goal. I can be a lazy sort, and I often need challenges to accomplish my goals. My other book-related goal/challenge is to complete the 50 book pledge (more on that later).

 I love to read books. My husband says I devour books. I love to recommend books to my family and friends and one of my greatest satisfactions in life is making a book recommendation and hearing afterwards how much that person loved the book. But I have a hard time describing books. Often, I just plunk a book in someones hand and say "you HAVE to read this! Just trust me!" I take pride in my book collection, and while I can clearly remember that I loved a particular book, I can't always remember very much about it. I want to change this. So this blog, (I'm hoping), will help me talk about the books I read, why I loved them or didn't love them, and I'll probably throw in little bits of my life along the way. My favourite blogs are the ones where I also get to "know" the blogger and I want my future readers to feel at home here too. And if all else fails, at least I'll have a place to send my family and friends when I want them to read a certain book but am at a loss for words.
