2010's Year In Books

As this year is winding down, I thought it would be a good time for my final entry of 2010. This year has been hands down the year of change.I'm expecting next year to be similar in that way, but probably in a happier way. In 2010 me and my boyfriend bought a house and moved in together. I was in severe kidney failure for a few days. My parents are getting divorced. We got a new dog. And a whole lot more. 

My original plan was for this blog to be my New Years resolution. That is no longer the case, because I am so used to it already. I still want to push myself to read more than this year and to expand what I read. On top of that though, I would like to just be a better me. I want to do more. Try more things. Grow. My mom suggested instead of a resolution, pick a word to represent 2011. I think my word is grow. If 2010 has taught me anything, it is that nothing is concrete. So live the best you can while you can. Take everything in and appreciate it. If something is wrong, change it. 

And now on to the point of this blog... books!!!
