New Year ... new focus!




I do plan on trying my best to give monthly updates on the comings and goings of the Hancock family over 2012. However .... I am truly inspired with all the amazing reading challenges that there are to be had! Having given away most of my scrapping, "me" time this year involves taking lots of itouch fun photos and reading! Investing all I do in my job, I find that I just long to delve and escape into a good book whenever there is free time.



So, that being said, I have set myself a few fun goals. Take a peek!



If you are not familiar with Goodreads you simply must check it out! Wonderful to link up with friends and so much to inspire. My TBR (to be read) list is VERY long!

Take a look to the side ... all images are linked.

Firstly I am doing the "Just for fun" challenge - one book a month and located at Goodreads.

Secondly, I do love my chick lit! Fun! So I have joined the Chick Lit Plus Challenge (http://chicklitplus.com/chick-lit-challenge-2012-sign/) Samantha is well organised and this looks like fun!

Finally, I wish I could read everything on my Kindle! I am ashamed at how quickly I have deserted the humble paperback! I do love 'real' books - the smell and feel. I do check the library first and more often than not, grab my requested reading from there. But I long to dive into Kindle use this year and joined the 2012 ebook challenge.

So there you have it ... I am excited! Wish me luck as I embark upon this literary journey!

Those sound like fun challenges. And I know what you mean about the kindle. I didn't think I'd be using mine so often but if I'm reading something really thick I don't want to carry a 500+ pager around in my purse.

Then good luck in this literary journey. But I hope that we can even share from time to time the adventures of the Helen's family ;) Hugs

It's so wonderful that you're blogging again!!
You have and exciting and fulfilling journey ahead of you.

And it's thanks to you dear Helen, that I'm back reading and have joined GoodReads.
the only thing I ask is if you'd include more photos - I love your photos - especially of the 2 special ones!
lotsa hugs
