Pledge to read the printed word

Don't have to tell me twice. Read books, not computers, people!

Happy 2010! I just stumbled upon your virtual chronicle and absolutely love
your world view.

If you get a chance, swing by and say hello. I would love to hear about all
your wants, musings, and distractions. Thank you darling and wonderful
blog, I will be back regularly.

I'm with you! I can't imagine reading books on computers. I'm sticking with my good old fashioned paper pages.

I am SO with you. I am always scribbling on my books, underlining passages, taking notes - one of the reasons I love my books in paper, thank you very much.

Yes, yes, yes!
I just looked through all the books you read last year - wow, you got through quite a bit! What's on your list for 2010? I'm going to strive to read more this year. Most definitely.

Jessica Lauren: Welcome and thank you for your lovely comments!

Kate: Great minds..... :-)

Mary-Laure: I do, too. I don't understand why some people are so precious with books. I want my books to have cracked binds and dogeared pages, as it shows that I really lived, breathed, enjoyed the words within.

Things That Can Fly: My list is so paltry compared to other bloggers' book lists. This year, I'm really intent on making a serious dent into the stack of books already on my shelves. That means lots of classics and quite a few new books.
