Hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading
WooHoo Miz B has decided to reinstate Musing Mondays!!
Thank you Miz B!!!
This week’s musing is a simple one to start off the new year…
How many books did you read in 2010? If you had a reading goal, did you meet it? What books are you most looking forward to reading for 2011 (either new, OR ones that have sat on your shelves for a while)?
I read 65 books in 2010. I am disappointed with that number, however, I am thinking that I guess it isn't too bad since I had 2+ months that I didn't read due to my surgeries in April and then a slump in September/October. I had signed up for the 2010 100+ Challenge, not expecting to finish it but seeing how close I could get, since this was my first year at blogging and reviewing and had never kept track of my books in the past.
For 2011, I am changing some of my reading habits. I read like a robot in 2010, reading books in the order of receiving them, no matter what mood I was in. In 2011 I will be taking the liberty of choosing books from my request pile, out of order, and also selecting books from my personal pile. I think that was a reason for the slump I had in September. However, I will be guaranteeing 3-4 ARCs a month. So yes, there are quite a few books that are on my shelves that I can't wait to pick up.
January is being hosted by Rose City ReaderMailbox Monday was created by Marcia of The Printed Page and is now on tour.
According to Marcia, “Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.”
Before sharing my mailbox, I want to thank Rose City Reader for generously hosting this meme in January.

Blogging is a funny thing...we tell our most intimate thoughts for all to read and yet most of the time I find myself sitting and wondering, "who is this person!?" I know them...but yet I don't know them! I want to know who the person is behind all those words so I thought of a great way for all of us to "meet" each other!
Every Sunday I will post five get to know you questions that you can copy and paste into your own Monday post and we can all learn a little more about each and every one of us!!
