Reading in 2010

One of the things I’m going to do in 2010 is keep track of all the books I read, using my Goodreads profile. I joined in April of 2009, was a little overwhelmed by it and never went back. But I think it’ll be a great way to track my reading this year.

Halfway through Christmas break week

This is pretty much all we’ve done this week:

Today the boys and I will be heading over to what we’ve for years called The Far-Away Burger King. It’s the midpoint between our home here in New Hampshire and my sister’s home over toward the coast of Maine, so both of us make a two-hour round trip rather than one of us making a four-hour round trip. SK and his four cousins romp in the play area while us … Read More »
