December in Review and Reads in 2011

Howdy folks! I hope you are enjoying the beginning of a New Year! I have been a bit busy lately, but I am hoping things will start to calm down soon.

December in Review
What I Learned

I just do not read come the end of the year. I suppose there is just too much else going on. December was just terrible only reading 2 books. I am really hoping 2012 goes better and I actually read a few things. My reading slowed down and my TBR pile didn't get any smaller. With the books that the cc bought me for Christmas and the books I bought with my gift cards, I had a huge overflow and had to break down and get another bookcase. When I read I put the books I want to keep in my mother's basement, but I just haven't been going through them fast enough to keep the bookcase manageable. My dream is to get it back onto one bookcase and then put my favourite books and series on the other bookcase.

Books Added to the TBR Pile

I did really badly with keeping track this month... I didn't really do my Week in Review posts because I had nothing to talk about.

These are the books I read in 2011. I will do a bit of a stats post tomorrow if anyone is interested. I will also link to the reviews of my Best Reads of 2011. I did the post in a hurry and sort of forgot!

  3. Holy cow! You read a ton of books, so no wonder you don't feel like reading in December!

  4. 239?!! Holy freakin' crap, Kelly! I'll bet I haven't read that many in the past decade. :P

    Hope things settle down soon so you start cranking out the reads for 2012. But mostly I just hope you have a super fantastically awesome 2012 all around!!!

  6. Well, you certainly made up for the end of the year with a strong rest of the year, LOL!

    I'm getting way ahead of myself but I'm already thinking about what de Lint we should read during the spring. Haven't gotten any ideas yet, so feel free to offer suggestions. Tachyon Books is re-releasing and older novel of his, Eyes Like Leaves, in February I believe.

  8. **Amanda: Yes, my reading always slows down near the end of the year...

    **Pat: There were a few I didn't like, but not many!

    **Staci: It seems to be the case for the end of the year that my reading slows down...

    **Debi: haha! Well, I don't have quite as much going on as you do. Just your preparations for Christmas are about 10 times what I actually do...

    I hope you have a wonderful 2012 yourself!

    **softdrink: lol Thanks!

    **Carl: Well, when I ordered from Bookcloseouts I got a couple de Lint's, but I am always happy to buy more if there is something we both want to read. I should look up the options and see what sounds good...

    **Peppermint Ph. D.: Thanks!

  9. Only you would think that 239 books in a year isn't a lot lol :P. I shot for 50 and only made it to 34! But I will just blame Piper for that! Any specific goals for 2012? Or just just read as much as possible? I have adjusted my goal to 30 given my changed situation. We'll have to chat literary soon! :)

    1. Yeah, I know... I only say that because there were three months where I hardly read anything, though... :) I never really make goals other than a few hopes: read more essays, discover some poetry I actually like, read some Shakespeare, try and not read only new-to-me authors, work on the series I have on the go, etc... We will see what happens.
