It’s almost time to bid adieu to 2011 and to wrap up the Read Me Baby, 1 More Time Challenge! Fortunately the best thing about re-reading books is that it’s never truly goodbye. So how’d you do this year? Would you be surprised to know that I didn’t do that much re-reading myself? 2011 was my year to let go and to challenge myself to read more, so I just didn’t have time to curl up with all my old favorites, although I always find time for old literary friends. I’m sorry I didn’t do a bang up job at hosting my first challenge, but I’ve learned from my mistakes… I hope!!
Comment below and tell me how you did, or link a post! And if you didn’t participate, just let me know what books you’re hoping to re-read in 2012. I’m looking forward to some Harry Potter re-reads and The Night Circus– loved that book and I really want to spend some more time with it!
So even though I was a pretty dismal host of this year’s Read Me Baby 1 More Time Challenge, I will be hosting again in 2012… but with some changes. There will be a place to link up any reviews of books you’ve re-read every month (I will master the art of Mr. Linky!) and I’m going to encourage lots of comments on these reviews from all of us participating. That’s going to be a big part of 2012 and blogging for me- community. Lori is busy designing a new challenge button for us, so I should have the new Challenge post up by Tuesday. Lori designed my challenge button last year and then this past May she turned my blog into something magical (seriously, check out her designs if you’re thinking of a makeover, she’s ah-mazing!).
