Hello! I totally skipped ROOTing last year, because my 1-year-old made hash of all sorts of plans last year (and reading "Where Is the Green Sheep?" 300 times doesn't really count as ROOTing, I suppose). But since the books keep piling up, and the little tyke now requires marginally less supervision, maybe I can meet my goal. Twenty books or bust!

Welcome back and have a great reading year that doesn't involve reading the same book 300 times :)

Welcome back, Jen, Happy ROOTing. I hope your little one leaves you more time to read this year. 20 books looks really doable.

One down! A quick read: The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency. Thoroughly enjoyed it, and reminded me of my trip to Rwanda a few years ago. We need more books, TV, movies, etc. representing Africa's middle class.

Woohoo! Two in a month! The Pure Gold Baby by Margaret Drabble. As a new-ish mother, there were some emotional themes in the book that resonated with me, but I feel like the book could have used just a little more action. Having the narrator be a friend of the main character gave the story a oddly removed feel as well. Useful for some things in the book, but it made it hard to fully engage with other parts. Still glad I read it, though.
