2010 : here I come

Happy New Year to all of my readers. I'm sorry that posting has been a bit sporadic over the last few weeks - the alps below were wonderful, and I am still reeling from having read so many books in 2010. The holiday period was certainly good for reading, and as I have another week until I go back to work I anticipate reading a fair few more books. However, I really must get back to blogging as I have a huge pile of reviews to write, both of books that I particularly want to tell you about and of books which were sent to me by publishers to review. So I hope to get on with that this week!

I haven't yet thought about the things that I want to blog about this year. I hope to keep on writing reviews, and about other bookish things (we are planning a Mitford-themed walk this afternoon!). I am very excited about a trip to a certain bookshop in London on Thursday as a result of the Persephone Reading Week which we held last August, and hopefully we will be announcing another PRW for 2010. I am also looking forward to meeting a couple of Oxford and London based bloggers in the coming weeks. I shall also be continuing with my challenge to read my way through the Virago Modern Classics, so do watch out for my other blog.

I look forward to seeing your new year plans for reading, and hope to drop into your blogs soon.


  1. Happy New Year! Good luck with your to-do list.

  2. A Mitford-themed walk sounds wonderful, wish I could tag along. By the way, have you seen your name mentioned in the Persephone newsletter?

  3. *reads Darlene's comment* Oh wonderful, Verity! I'm glad they saw it and that it gives the article wider recognition that The Bookseller subscribers.

    I laid out my very simple and fundamental reading plans today, which basically boil down to having no plans! I have blogging plans but more about that closer to the time.

    I'm looking forward to meeting up later this week and planning our next Persephone Reading Week! That is definitely the blogging event that I am most looking forward to and I've had a couple of ideas for this time around.

  4. Nicole - thanks!

    Darlene - I hadn't spotted it, thanks for pointing it out! I have yet to see the copy of the bookseller...

    Claire - so excited! I am about to read your plans...

  5. It sounds like there is much to look forward to in 2010!

  6. Happy New Year! Hope that you had a lovely Christmas and I am looking forward to reading your reviews in 2010!
