Happy 2010 and 2 Best Reads of 2009

I can't say I wasn't warned.

Once you decide to make your blog your de facto home page, you owe it to your visitors to actually provide new content every so often. Daily is best. Every other day is acceptable. Once a week is borderline. Once a season? Not so much.

I don't make resolutions. At least not in the traditional New Year's sense. (They have a way of coming back to haunt you, don't they?) I mean, I've probably pledged blogging fidelity at least a half dozen times before. So I won't say it. But let's see what happens.

2009 was a reading year for me and there are two clear cut winners for top marks.

My Life in France - Julia Child and Alex Prud'Homme
I fell in love with Julia. Head-over-heels, as a matter of fact. Her joie de vivre is irresistible. Her story? Better than fiction.


How To Knit A Love Song - Rachael Herron
I was lucky enough to read an advance copy and I literally couldn't put it down until I reached the end. If you're familiar with Rachael's fab blog, then you're probably head-over-heels for Rachael already. Her warm, funny, engaging style translates seamlessly from blog to novel. Best of all, this is book #1 in a series!

To be continued . . .

I also was lucky enough to read an arc of LOVE SONG - read it in a porch swing, as it should be read, and only got up to get more lemonade. It's beautiful!!
