Jodie at book gazing has posted about her 1 year blogiversary today (congratulations, Jodie!) and included a meme which I thought fitted in rather nicely as it is a look back at 2009 in one liners.
January: Seeing the year in from Tynemouth where I indulge in comfort reading and kick off the Sci-Fi Experience.
February: Really enjoying reading Sci-Fi but break it up with a Georgette Heyer blow out!
March: Have had enough of winter and being cold so convince Mr B we need to take a trip to somewhere warm.
April: We enjoy two fantastic weeks in Kenya and I succeed in reading all 2250+ pages of Neal Stephenson’s Baroque Cycle.
May: The Alphabet Weekends (inspired by a book read on holiday) schedule kicks off and Mr B and I cover off Art, Broads, Cycling and Dragon Hall!
June: Have post-birthday book splurge and realise I could have an out of control addiction.
July: Read far too much escapist historical romance but really enjoy myself in a slightly guilty way.
August: Wonder what on earth happened to our promised summer and sign up for three book challenges.
September: Reading rate drops to an all-time low and I only read five books this month.
October: I give up and accept that I am going to “fail” nearly all my 2009 book challenges.
November: We return from a trip to Toronto to visit some friends where we manage to cover a lot of Canadian ground but I only read one book!
December: I realise that I have raised £125 for Book Aid International by taking part in the Year of Readers!
