There will probably be other titles mixed in here, but I'm excited to dive in! Do you have any recommendations for other books that I should read? I can't say I'll get to them all, but I'd love to hear some ideas. Also, you should check out our friend Rachel's blog, Trac Changes, where she'll be chronicling her 2011 challenge to read five books from each of her ten categories. That's 50 books in one year. We wish her all the best!
It's almost a new year, which means it'll be time to officially launch this blog! Here's to 2011 - may it be a year filled with new adventures, old friends and a lot of happiness. Cheers!
