~ Oprah Winfrey
Oprah is sagacious. In 2011, we have the chance to start fresh with a brand new year. I've been cleaning and organizing my household for the past several days, and have also given some thought to refining my reading and writing goals for the new year. I intend to carve out more time for reading, and I hope to also write more (and more incisive) book reviews; I may even try my hand at writing some short fiction. It's exciting to be at the beginning of both a new year and a new decade. I hope that health, opportunity, luck, and meaningful work are in store for each of us in 2011.
It's not Friday, but it is time for the Hop! The New Year's Reading Resolutions Giveaway Hop is hosted by Candace from Candace's Book Blog, Lori at Pure Imagination, and Angel from Reading Angel, and lasts from January 3 until January 9th. Over 100 blogs are participating with their own book related giveaways! I am giving away a gift certificate for $25 from Amazon.com. Because I have readers around the world, my giveaway is international.
