So, I Met My Goal. Now What?

When I started this little blog, I was going to read 52 books in a year.  I planned to blog my thoughts here, and that would be that.

Except that I finished early.  And I like doing the blog.  So what now, since I've read all 52 books?

I worked with Marian Schembari, who gave me some fantastic pointers on ways to improve the blog. And I'm going to spend time over the next few weeks working with folks who know a lot more than I do to migrate this blog to a new bookfetish domain, and implement said changes.

In the meantime, I'm going to keep reading and keep blogging.  I'm reading slowly right now.  I'm re-reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in preparation for the next film.

That's a slow one for me to read. There's so much going on, and I read it so quickly the first time that I know I missed things.  I want to take time to really enjoy it and catch all the action with this reading.

So, stay tuned, and keep checking in. I'll update as I'm reading new things. Although now that I've met my goal, I may slow down my pace a bit.

Thanks for reading.


  1. Congratulations on meeting your goal! Feeling accomplished? You should! Suggestion for your next book: W's new biography 'Decision Points'--this one will be interesting...

  2. I'll have to think about that. He wasn't one of my favorites, but might be good to hear directly from him. Thanks for the suggestion!

  3. I am glad you are going to continue to blog. I really enjoy reading your posts. They are very well written, and I love hearing about new books to read. Of course, I have about 15 books sitting on the floor next to my bed just begging to be read. Can you believe I bought Heart of the Matter the week it came out (May), and I still haven't read it yet! Congratulations on your goal - I will be on the lookout for new posts.
