Progress 2010 - Goals 2011

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!  2011, here I come!  (Sorry this is a few days late...)

Remember my first Progress post??  Well, here are the finished results.... :)

My goal at the beginning of the year was to read 62 books in 2010, to beat the 61 that I read in 2009.

I hit 62 books on November 17th, when I finished The Bad Queen: Rules and Instructions for Marie-Antoinette by Carolyn Meyer.  (A fantastic book, by the way; read the review here.)

But total, in 2010, from January 1st to December 31st, I read 69 books!

Not a record, but still awesome, and I beat my goal by 7 books.  (In 2004, I read a total of 112 books...easy books, yes, but that was the start of my passion for reading.)  I'm shooting for 63 books this year.  We'll see what happens...

That brings to me to something I've been waiting to write about for a while...  My curriculum.  Yes, I'm creating a curriculum.  Sounds like insanity, doesn't it?  Sometimes I think I'm a crazy person for taking on this madness, and yet I love it.  I will be updating you all with posts to let you know what is going on.  My "What Am I Reading"  page (see here) will update you every time I'm reading a book for the curriculum as I'm making it.  And the posts will let you know little details that I decide to let slip... :)

I am very, very excited to do this.  All of it.  The reading 63 books, the curriculum, the writing, the graduating, traveling, going to a community college, photography, teaching...  It's going to be a journey, just like last year, just like the rest of the years before and behind me.  I live a very, very good life, and I'm blessed.

So, until my next blog post, happy reading! :)
