Happy 2011 everyone!
I know that I am happy to be a in a new year, with new possibilities and opportunities out there. 2010 was a rough year for me, and my husband, so we are both glad that it is over and done with. We're hoping we have better luck in 2011!
We spent New Year's Eve with my older brother, younger sister, Matt's sister and husband, and a couple close friends. We sat around my kitchen table and played board games, before bringing in 2011 with a small champagne toast. It was fun, nerdy, and what I wanted. I like low-key nights and the last couple of years have been just that.
Everyone around the blogosphere is gearing up with their first reads for 2011. I am in the middle of each of the three books I am hosting in January's readalongs. I'm kind of regretting hosting three readalongs in one month, but I will persevere and all will be fine. I want to get these first posts written as soon as possible so I can pick something else up!

I should also point out that you have until midnight to enter my New Year Classic Giveaway. I am giving away some beautiful Penguin clothbound classics. Make sure you enter!
I am gearing up for the first day back tomorrow at school. I will be busting my butt the rest of the day to get my lessons solidified for the week and everything ready to copy in the morning. I am hoping that I can spend a few hours each weekend doing lessons so I can have my weeknights to grade and have reading time. I am sure it will take a week or two to get into the schedule, but it should be good, right?
Anyway, I have lots to do today, so I am cutting this short. I hope you all have a wonderful week of reading!
