It's Monday...What Are You Reading? (12.31.12)

It’s Monday What Are you Reading , hosted by Sheila, is the perfect way for me to begin my week and allows me to focus on what needs to be read and to see what I have or have not accomplished the previous week. I also enjoy discovering new books by visiting other participants blogs.

It's hard to believe that tomorrow is the first of the new year. The past few days I have been looking at all the reading challenges for 2013, picking and choosing which ones I will be doing. I will be posting those later this week. I will also be posting a list of my favorite books of 2012 as well as goals for the upcoming year.

I already have my first book of 2013 picked out and ready to read - The Winter Palace by Eva Stachniak. I've had this book for a few weeks and cannot wait to start reading it.

Happy New Year to all...wishing everyone a safe, healthy and happy new year!!!

What about you?  What does your reading week look like this week?  Whatever it is, happy reading and have a good week!


  1. Enjoy your new books and all the best for 2013.

  2. I have decided not to do any challenges and just have an open year of reading, we will see.

    Happy New Year

  3. Happy New Year to you too! I wasn't going to do any reading challenges this year, but I'm too excited by some of the ones I've seen - I gotta do a few too :-)

  4. Happy New Year!

    I still need to select my reading challenges and figure out if I'm going to host one again. I can't believe it is 2013 already. Too soon!
