Books and Movies


Well, it's about that time of year when we all review the past year and look forward to the next with little goals and big aspirations. One of the things I would like to improve upon is the number of books I read! It seems like I'm reading all day, but I suppose blogs, emails and facebook aren't the same thing as reading an actual book?! Anyway, I hope to read more books in 2012! And, since I've decided to blog about books, it seems like the right time to try out my Amazon affiliate links now that I've signed up as an associate... one step closer to monetizing my blog? I hope so! The added income would sure be nice.

The Kindle
Last year we bought our oldest daughter an e-reader for Christmas. Unfortunately, she really didn't use it all that much. She's an avid reader, but found out that she really prefers "real" books. However, it wasn't a total fail because I love reading books on her e-reader!

I liked the book, except for a couple gross parts.
I heard the movie is better.

As you can see, I need to add to my list of books I'd like to read next year! What would you recommend? Next I'm going to browse the book linky party over at The Nesting Place to get some reading recommendations! I might as well link up while I'm there, too. :)

I hope you'll have a wonderful, safe and happy New Year's Eve!
