Activity #17 Collage of Books Read In 2010

Okay everyone, let's see who managed to complete this task. Just in case you missed the post from Tuesday giving you advance notice, here is what you need to do today.

Create a collage using all the book covers from the books you read in 2010.  I know, I know!!!! I'm crazy!!!  You can do this any way you want.  You can print out the book covers and cut and paste them on a poster board and take a picture of it.  Or, you can do it all on the computer. OR, if you have all the books in your home you can just lay them out on the floor in a collage and take a picture of that.  Whatever works for you.  Get crackin' and get creative!

Here is my collage:
Use Mr. Linky below to link your beautiful collage post so we can see what you created.

Activity #16 Goals for 2011

Happy January 1st, 2011!!!  

Today is the day to start fresh.  Let's make some goals (resolutions) for our reading/blogging lives and post them on our blogs in order to let the world know what we plan to do.  We need some accountability. I know I do.  So, tell us what you are going to try to accomplish in 2011 and come back and link using Mr. Linky.

Here are my plans:

1. Read more.  Here is what I've read the last couple of years:
2008 - 113
2009 - 115
2010 - 107
I'm really want to read more than this.  I'd like to read at least 150 books in 2011.  I don't think anything more than that is realistic, but I'll take it if I just so happen to go over 150. 

2.  I want to write my reviews in a timely manner. I need to write the review as soon as I finish a book.  What has been happening is as soon as I finish a book I pick up my next one and just keep reading and never take a break to write the review for the one I just finished.  It becomes a vicious cycle. My goal is to have a review for EVERY book I read (young adult) on my blog.

Your turn.
