Everywhere I go, every blogger I read seems to be doing a 2013 retrospective.
I've never really seen the point, as I love all the books I read - in different ways and for different reasons, otherwise I wouldn't have read them (especially now that I employ the "stop reading if I'm not enjoying it" policy.)
But Nancy at Ipsofactodotme has a different take on the whole "remember when" post.
Take the first line from the first post of each month of 2013 to see what it reveals about your reading & blogging habits.
January - "I've struggled with this book." (A Moveable Feast)
February - "I came across this Huffington Post article called 16 Fiction Book Characters Myers-Briggs Personality Types."
March - "I'm stuck. I've been trying to track down an old picture book that I loved to read during my preschool teaching days."
April - "This was my book for the Classic Club Spin. And what a lovely choice it turned out to be." (The Magnificent Ambersons)
May - "Wondrous Words Wednesday is a lovely meme hosted by Bermuda Onion each week to highlight new (to us) words that we come across in our daily reading."
June - "I went to many events at the recent Sydney Writers Festival, but my favourite was the Pride and Prejudice lovefest on Sunday morning."
July - "My rereading of Tess for the Classic Club Spin (after about 20 years) was a curious thing." (Tess of the D'Urbervilles)
August - "Another month another readalong. I seem to be a little obssessed with readalongs and the classics right now! That's a good thing right?"
September - "I'm a little excited. This month over at The Classics Club they have selected my question for the September meme."
October - "My Cousin Rachel was my lucky number #4 for the latest Classics Club Spin."
November - "I've been building up a healthy pile of Aussie books for AusReading Month (see yesterday's master post below) which I already know is Mount Impossible, but I'd rather have too many books on hand than not enough!"
December - "I've had a great time putting together AusReading Month and I've been thrilled by the number of participants for this inaugural event."
Two things really - I obviously LOVE the Classics Club in a slightly embarrassing way and two - I participate in more readalongs and book events than I thought I did!
I wonder what 2014 will reveal?
P.S. This is my 400th post - wahoo!
