Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Are you having a merry Jolabokaflod! It's time to retire this year's walking shoes, curl up by the fire or under a cozy comforter and figure out where you've been and where you would like to go next year. Buy a new pair of shoes or wings if you dare, and maybe buy a bigger backpack to stow all those new and old books you want to read in 2024.
Although I love exploring and reading new authors, genres, spaces and places, I like to revisit old friends along the way. While I may map out a plan for the new year, I always build in plenty of time for side trips along the way. I like spontaneity, delving here, there, and every where, following rabbit trails full of whimsy. In fact, I'm looking forward to a whimsical new year full of reading adventures.
So tell me...how was your reading year?
Did you follow a plan or go with the flow?
Did you stick to tried and true authors or genres or explore outside your comfort zone?
Where did your adventures take you? Outside of time or into space? A different country, state, or city?
Which stories made your heart sing or cry or laugh or fly? Made you want to hug the author or characters?
Which story made you want to throw it across the room in disgust?
Which authors did you add to your "I want to read more or again pile."
Share quotes, covers, stats, and ideas for next year such as new or different authors or genres or stories to explore.

Thank you for sharing your reading year with me!
Hugs, loves, and kisses!
