Maybe This Year I'll Write One

My husband gave me a Kindle for my 31st birthday and I have absolutely loved having it.  I had forgotten how much I truly enjoy reading and this little device rekindled (pun only partially intended)  my love for that hobby.  I suppose that had I actually made any New Year's resolutions for 2012 it would have been to read more, specifically classics and literature.  Now as I begin 2013 I'm happy to report that that is a resolution I actually kept, or would have, again, had I actually made it.

So just for kicks I shall list all the books I read last year...mostly because I'm curious.  (Also, some of the books I read only because they were free, don't judge me.)

Book of Mormon
Golden Lies
Stuck in the Middle
The Scarlet Letter
Pride and Prejudice
Northanger Abbey
Sense and Sensibility
Mansfield Park
Jane Eyre
Awaken His Eyes: The Awakened Book One
Paths of Destruction: The Awakened Book Two
Hands to Make War: The Awakened Book Three
A Confederacy of Dunces
The Secret Garden
Les Miserables
Atlas Shrugged

If I've done my math correctly that means I've read  just over 7000 pages, which, now that i think about it, doesn't sound like a whole lot.  But if you factor in all the laundry and dishes I did last year as well, not to mention potty training a certain stubborn toddler, I suppose it's quite a feat.

So farewell, 2012, I hereby dub thee "The Year Mightier Than the Sword."

AND . . . some of those books are pretty hard to finish. I'm pretty proud of you 'Oh Young One'. Nice goal--gonna top it this year?
