Holidays 2010 - Goal for 2011

Some emails:

"Where did you go?" "Are you reading anymore?" "Did you finish your book?" "Why don't you post?"

2010 has been a challenging year, so my book reviews (and Books for Breakfast) were swept under the bed to mix with dog hair and dust bunnies. However, how could I completely neglect my baby?

Books for Breakfast is coming back with even more craziness for 2011. But, first, a recap:

2006 - read 150 books in one year

2007 - read 90 of the top 100 books to read, as well as focused on banned books

2008 - read from the 1001 books to read before you die list

2009 - read whatever I wanted

2010 - read recommendations from blog readers

For 2011, I'm expanding upon the idea for 2010. You tell me what to read - email, post here, or send something to the Facebook group. I am only going to read recommendations and Nook books.

Using the "share" option, you can email your library recommendations to me (if you have a nook, too). Or, send an idea to me, and I will put it on my to-do list. However, Nook requests will take priority. ;-)

Goal: 175 books. I will beat my former record with everyone's help.

Cheers! Thanks for sticking with me through the past few months... I am grateful!

Glad to see you're still around! A few of my favorite books that I read this year, I'll recommend are:

Beloved by Toni Morrison
The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie
One Crazy Summer by Rita Williams-Garcia
When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead
Twelve Angry Men by Reginald Rose

Let me know if you've read any of them. Too bad I don't have a Nook!

Oh I wish I had a Nook!! I'll be waiting to see what recommendations you receive and I'll think of some. I'm glad to see you're still here =)

Thanks, all! Lists noted... if you don't see my responses, it may be because I've read the books or have already reviewed them.

Keep the ideas (and books) coming!
