And by January at the end, I totally meant December. Sorry, I’m not redoing the whole thing for that one error.  I’m just posting that hot toddy.

    This is a fan-freaking-TASTIC year-end post! I couldn’t love it more! I’m so looking forward to next year, with more amazing books for us both to dive into (and share with each other!) HAPPY NEW YEAR!

      You too, darling! I can’t wait to read that new collection, Nine Inches. I will let you know how I like it. I’m going to buy it in the next few days. ❤️yay! Send me your year end review when you have it up, or if you did already and I accidently deleted that email. I got so many ads this last week and deleted like every email. Ugh.

        Mine’s going up on the 31st – not as pretty as yours, but good recommendations, nonetheless! I hope you like it! I just finished a book that was somewhat blah. I think I’ll be ending the year without a wow-book. Hoping to start the year with something more exciting!

    On book and/or word goals, I pass along the advice given by a wise, voracious reader, “You only will read a small number of 1,000-page books during your life. Choose well.”

    O’Brien’s short story “The Things They Carried” is exquisite. His use of lists adds density to descriptions of the soldiers’ lives. They help craft the characters. Much like, in a complete opposite of tone, how Nick Hornby used lists in High Fidelity to develop the character of Rob Fleming [top five most memorable breakups].

    • Cassie says:

      Great advice. I haven’t read anything Nick Hornby, but I would like to now. The Things They Carried is probably in my Top Ten Books of All Time, I think. It was unbelievable. I’m still reeling about that baby buffalo.

    I love your creativity, and I am glad to see you continue to find an outlet for it. I agree, it’s not about the number of books we read, life always has a habit of intervening, but we will always make time for books and words and voices. Always a pleasure to read and listen to yours. Bonne Continuation for 2014!
