  • I was reading a lot of pregnancy and baby books, I don't even know if I read a fun book in 2010...

    I just started reading a fiction/romance that I got from amazon on their top 100 free books.  It is called Romeo, Romeo (don't know who the author is and I am too lazy to grab my kindle to see)

    My goal for 2011 is 75 books.

    I am new to the nest book club, so I am not trying a challenge right away, I do want to try one this year though.

  • What was the last book you finished in 2010?  Bright Young Things for November NBC..it was one of about 6 books I read all year!  ugh.

    Are you planning on doing any challenges this year (so far anyway)?  For sure!  I've got my spreadsheet ready to go for WBC.  I'm hoping that the book challenge will help me to venture out of my comfort zone.

     I'm excited to get to know everyone on the board.  Happy reading!

  • What was the last book you finished in 2010?   The Girl Who Played With Fire.

    What will be your first book in 2011?  Catching Fire.

    What's your goal for 2011?   I easily met my goal this year of 50 books for 2010, so I am leaning towards 60 for 2011...but may shoot for 65.  I was originally thinking 75, but I just don't know where I would find the time to read that many books.

    Are you planning on doing any challenges this year (so far anyway)?   No challenges.  I like reading whatever I want. 

  • Ok, I take back my answer about the challenges.  I was thinking it was you do all of them or none of them.  Clearly, that's not the case.  So maybe I'll do the Spring or Summer one.  I guess it will depend on the categories and what I have going on at the time.
  • I'm part of that newbie explosion!  Woohoo!

    What was the last book you finished in 2010? I read the Twilight series last, with the last one read being The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner.

    What will be your first book in 2011? A friend gave me The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and the other books in the series to read; I think I'll start there!

    What's your goal for 2011? 50 books in 2011.

    Are you planning on doing any challenges this year (so far anyway)? Probably not any of the points challenges, at least not right now.

  • What was the last book you finished in 2010?  The Knife of Never Letting Go

    What will be your first book in 2011?  Ender's Game

    What's your goal for 2011?  50 books, but given my writing goals, this might be way too lofty!

    Are you planning on doing any challenges this year (so far anyway)?  Just the personal challenge to try to get to 50 books again this year.

  • What was the last book you finished in 2010? The Mockingbirds

    What will be your first book in 2011? Outlander (omg so good!!!!)

    What's your goal for 2011? 50 books. Same as last year :)

    Are you planning on doing any challenges this year (so far anyway)? Going to try and do them all, but there's no way I aim to finish. I'm using them as guidelines instead.

  • What was the last book you finished in 2010? Gone with The Wind.  Finished on Dec 30th.

    What will be your first book in 2011? The Confession by John Grisham

    What's your goal for 2011? I usually don't do any goals, but this year I decided to try for 50.  I have no idea how many I usually read in a year.

    Are you planning on doing any challenges this year (so far anyway)? Probably no challenges.

  • Hi newbies!! It seems like this happens every year around this time... it's great to see so many new faces!

    What was the last book you finished in 2010? I'm in the middle of City of Glass by Cassandra Clare.

    What will be your first book in 2011? Once I finish City of Glass I'll be starting Wither by Lauren DeStefano.. It's an ARC a friend who works at S&S gave me.

    What's your goal for 2011? 50. With everything we have to do this year, this is a more realistic goal than last year.

    Are you planning on doing any challenges this year (so far anyway)? I hope so... I only did one last year because I was so busy, but I really missed them.

  • Last book of 2010: Fall for Anything by Courtney Summers

    First book of 2011: The Mockingbirds by Daisy Whitney

    Goal for 2011: I haven't really set one but I got close to 50 books last year so I think I'm going to attempt to pass it.

    Happy New Year everyone!

  • The last book I finished in 2010 was Little Bee.

    I just finished Me and Emma, so I'm not sure what book I'll be starting first in 2011.

    I don't really have a goal, though I'd like to thin out the books on my to be read pile.

    No challenges anticipated.

  • Happy 2011 to everyone.  I've been missing all of you while on vacation.

    My last book of 2010 was Halo by Alexandra Adornetto (3.5 stars)

    My first book was Forget You by Jennifer Echols (3 stars)

    No challenges this year.  I just want to read as many books as possible.  I'm going to try to get through some of the books I already own that have just been sitting around.

  • What was the last book you finished in 2010? - Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.  I finally got around to my first full HP series reread since the release of DH!

    What will be your first book in 2011? - Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.  I also have the audiobook for Neil Gaiman's Graveyard Book sitting in my car, waiting to be listened to.  I am thinking though that HP will be finished first.

    What's your goal for 2011? - I was planning on doing 50 but made a spur of the moment decision yesterday to up it to 75.  This will be my first year keeping track of my books so I have no idea if 75 is too ambitious or not but 50 seemed too reachable.  I wanted a challenge :)

    Are you planning on doing any challenges this year (so far anyway)? - I have no plans.  I did the FBC and kind of lost interest half way through.  There are too many books that I wanted to read and it was hard for me to plan my reading around the challenges.  Maybe I'll do one later in the year though because the bit I did of the FBC was fun.

    Holy newbie explosion!! Welcome! So since it will probably be slow over the weekend I figured we'd do a little roll call post.

    What was the last book you finished in 2010? It was either The Imperfectionists by Tom Rachmann or An Object of Beauty by Steve Martin.  I can't remember which day I finished the latter

    What will be your first book in 2011? I just finished American Wife by Curtis Sittenfeld

    What's your goal for 2011? I haven't set one.  I kind of just jumped back in to being a rabid reader - it's hard to find the time with two little ones, but I've been enjoying my newest toy, my Nook!  Maybe 20 books this year?

    Are you planning on doing any challenges this year (so far anyway)? Probably not.

    I've been hanging around for a while, but I've never really introduced myself.  I mostly hang out on Married Life, sometimes on Travel, but am not a huge poster anywhere really.  I was an English major and have always loved reading.  I always like getting books recs and reading reviews, so I'm sure you'll be seeing more of me!
