It’s going to be (pardon the language) a bloody hot start to the year here in Adelaide with a predicted high of 41°C (that’s 106°F) which I have decided calls for hunkering down inside with a good book and a glass (or two) of sangria (is 10 in the morning too early to start drinking on a public holiday?).
I’ve chosen to start the new year by catching up with an old friend, private detective Kinsey Millhone, who’s just getting involved in a new case, something to do with a mysterious shop lifter. Looks like there’s going to be a connection to a local loan shark too and there’s a society lady with marriage troubles who looks like getting involved in things too. I’m set to take my mind of the heat by finding out what kind of mess Kinsey’s gotten herself involved in over there in Santa Teresa.
I’m trying to simplify my life a little this year so my reading resolutions are fairly simple: complete my chosen level of the Australian Women Writers reading challenge and knock off at least 25 books from my TBR list. I managed to reduce the TBR from 200 to 160 by the end of 2011 so this should be achievable. Of course if I were really strong I’d aim to knock the whole thing off but I’m realistic enough to know that’s not going to happen.
Warm thanks to everyone who has read, followed, liked, subscribed to or commented on the blog during 2011, all such activity makes me do a little happy dance (which you should be grateful you can’t see as I have no rhythm whatsoever). I wish you all a 2012 full of good things and, especially, good reading.
