And here is my spot on the first page - it soo helps if you set up the topic :wink:

My list from last year shows that I read or listened to an incredible 79 books (the second best achievement since I started in 2010), I'm quite proud! I even managed to read 4 books for LV last year (okay, short ones, but still) and I completed the author challenge 2014 (with quite some searching for an eligible X...) Anyway, let's see how things will go this year - I have lots of plans that should keep me rather busy...

I don't have specific plans as to how many books I'll read, probably 1 per week is a good goal indeed. I'd like to read one or two solos for LV again, anything else is a bonus.

I'll give it a go this year!

My trouble is that by the end of the year, most of the books have slipped my memory, especially the ones I returned to the library and forgot the title and author. ("That one that was about ..." doesn't help me pin it down for a list!)
So I think this suggestion of starting a post in January and updating it as the year passes is very sensible -- especially for folks like me with sieve-like memories!

I'll start it off with my New-Year's read -- first of more to come!

Dramatic Readings of Bible passages

Some reason I decided to try to write fiction. And it sucked me far away from LibriVox into the world of writing, editing and blogging.

I can't read those colours very well, Tiffany. :? Now, I don't like Charles Dickens very much, so I'd be all for covering up the fact I was reading him ... but I think most people are nicer to him than that ;)
There's honestly no such thing as a stupid question -- but I'm afraid I can't rule out giving a stupid answer : : To Posterity and Beyond!
