So it seems that today is the last #blog12daysxmas. I thought we had a day to go. I know I promised to write a post about what I read in 2012 but seriously, I didn’t keep track. That’s why I just signed up to goodreads now and started a 2013 shelf which I hope to add to through the year to make a 2013 post about my reading habits possible. So far there are 2 things on it. If I crack 50 books for the year I’ll probably be doing really well. I do know that I tend to avoid fiction these days – unless it’s classic stuff – your Dickens, your Brontes, your Austens etc etc. Contemporary fiction makes me cranky, disappointed and more often than not bored.
What I have read most of during 2012 are memoirs and autobiographies. I love them. Mainly of comics and actors, but other real life stories as well occasionally. One book that I neglected to blog about during 2012 (after I had twitter promised to do so!) was Letters from Aspergia – self-published by @sulischild. Autobiographical – this was a tremendously insightful look at what it’s like growing up and living as an adult female with Asperger’s Syndrome. It made me look at myself and the people around me with fresh eyes and new understanding. I highly recommend you follow her and buy a copy. It also has beautiful illustrations.
Over the next little while I have to start reading for my research project on community cultural heritage. That’s on my to do list for tomorrow. I’m looking forward to it. I just need to push myself to get started and then I know I will be up and away! Like Super Grover!
