Happy New Year everyone! I made it to 100 books last year, by the skin of my teeth, but hope not to have to spend quite so much time cocooned in my house this coming year.

My first book of the year was a little disappointing-I had expected more from the reviews and the dust jacket.
1. The Beauty of the End by Debbie Howells

Welcome back! Sorry the first was a bit of a bust.

I am part of the group.
I love being part of the group.
I love the friendships bestowed upon my by dint of my membership of this wonderful fellowship.
I love that race and creed and gender and age and sexuality and nationality make absolutely no difference to our being a valued member of the group.

Thank you for also being part of the group.

>1 ted74ca: Ted, perhaps "the beauty of the end" was that you managed to finish it off so quickly?!

A change in genre for me-a memoir. Quite a good read. 2. They Left Us Everything by Plum Johnson

3. The Slap by Christos Tsiolkas. I meant to read this years ago, amidst all its hype, but now don't really know why I bothered finishing it. Boring...

4. Rather Be the Devil by Ian Rankin

I vaguely remember hearing about The Slap when it was published here in the US. Glad I can skip it... :)

>47 drneutron:. I agree (about The Terror.) I was surprised about how much I enjoyed it, almost couldn't put it down, even though I knew of course the "true" history of the expedition.

Made it to 75, with 10 weeks or so of the year left. Was going to shoot for 100 again this year, but don't think I'll make it.

Slowly getting back into reading as the weather is changing--
76) Those Girls by Chevy Stevens, very so-so and
77) London Rain by Nicola Upson, very good.

This is a time of year when I as a non-American ponder over what I am thankful for.

I am thankful for this group and its ability to keep me sane during topsy-turvy times.

I am thankful that you are part of this group.

I am thankful for this opportunity to say thank you.
