The end of another year.  And how fast it went by.  However, it was a bittersweet year for me.  It's been two (2) years now that I have been part of this great community of book blogging and reviewing and am having as much fun today as I did when I first started.  I have met many new friends, read some phenomenal books, have had the opportunity for new adventures and have been honored to host Authors as my guests just to name a few events of this past year.  As far as reading, I fell short of what I wanted to accomplish but I hope to do better in 2012.

There were some road blocks that I had to get through this year, but I did, and I want to thank you all for being there for me when I didn't think I was going to make it to the other side.  Your prayers, genuine concern, caring, words of encouragement and comfort helped me through.  I will forever be thankful.


Tomorrow is going to be a big day for me.  
First, I will be moving to my new home over at wordpress.  I hope you all come visit, take down my new address, sign up and/or on, leave me a little comment that the directions I gave or that your GPS worked and you found me.  Since I am not tech savvy, it might take me a while to learn my way around and navigate the new platform, so I apologize in advance.  

And tomorrow, the day I have been patiently waiting for.  I am being very optimistic that 2012 is going to be a better year for me....it can't get any worse  lol.....at least I don't think so.  Remember all those challenges that I signed up for.....all  23 of them....WooHoo.....they start tomorow.  One of my resolutions this year is to read more.  Because of my personal real life issues, I only read 50 books in 2011...pitiful.  There were some months that I read 1 book.  So let the challenges begin!!!!!!!


HAVE A SAFE, HEALTHY AND HAPPY 2012 NEW YEAR!!

NEWS ALERT!!!!! MOVING!!!!


Dear Friends:

I am moving.  Not as in house moving but as in blog moving.  And I would love if you would follow me to my new home.

I will officially be, as of 01/01/12, using WordPress as my platform.  My new address is:

www.cmashlovestoread.com

Due to all the problems I had earlier this month with blogger, when my blog went missing and my gmail account was deleted (all of my Partners In Crime Tours spreadsheets gone), then my blog reappearing but not being able to access it, only my coadministrator could, then 2 weeks later, receiving an email that my gmail account had been restored but no explanation given, was as the saying goes, the straw that broke the camel's back.

I have to give a HUGE THANKS to my good friend Gina, from Hott Books, (my computer angel) woh was able to access my blog, save all of my work,  recreate, set up my new blog, move and teach me the basics of WP, all the while trying to fix her and others' blogs who were having the same problem.

I have said that I am not computer savvy, so there will be bumps in the road until I get used to the new place but hopefully it won't take long...LOL!!

Hope to see you there.......................

Today's question:
What were your favorite books of 2011?
My response:
I always get palpitations when a question asks for "a favorite", maybe because I'm a parent and I would never be able to answer the question "who is my favorite child".  And since moving into this neighborhood of book blogging and reviewing, I have a total new outlook about books. I used to purchase them, read for enjoyment and either they would go on my shelf or be passed on.  Now I know the hard work, the heart and soul the author puts into writing a particular book for my pleasure of reading.  That book IS "their child"

This year I had the opportunity to read many outstanding books that I would recommend, many more than I am going to list, but I narrowed it down to these 10 that really stood out:
Voices of the Dead by Peter Leonard
(review to be posted 01/19/12)

What were your favorites of 2011?
