â€œBooks to the ceiling, books to the sky, my pile of books is a mile high. How I love them! How I need them! Iâ€™ll have a long beard by the time I read them.â€ ~Arnold Lobel
Happy New Year to all, and Happy Reading, too!
Today, SATURDAY December 31st, is a special edition of the Saturday Review of Books just for booklists. You can link to a list of your favorite books read in 2011, a list of all the books you read in 2011, a list of the books you plan to read in 2012, a list of all the books you got for Christmas, or any other end of the year or beginning of the year list of books. I’ve already collected a list of those end of the year/beginning of the year lists that I see all over book blogger world, and you can scroll down for those lists. However, I might very well have missed yours, so please come by on New Yearâ€™s Eve or New Yearâ€™s Day and add a link to the list of lists.
I’m also trying my hand at a little reader’s advisory, so for every list linked I’ll try to suggest a book or two that you might like to read in 2012. Because all of us need more books on our TBR lists, bedside tables, towering stacks of unread books, etc. If you don’t have a blog or don’t have a book list on your blog, you can leave a list of your favorite reads from 2011 and I’ll try to give you a recommendation for the new year.
Whatever your list, itâ€™s time for book lists. So link to yours for a Happy New Year.
