  1. Good morning, merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, happy Holidays or just happy day to each and everyone of you. It's week 52 and time to wrap it up for the year. It's been an absolutely delightful reading year and I appreciate every one of you. Yes, you have until the 31st to finish up your reads so no worries and no rush. Mr. Linky is up on the 52 Books blog to link to your reviews and year end wrap ups. 52 Books Blog - Year End Wrap up: While we are wrapping up the year, some of us will also probably be unwrapping books (me..me...me... )left so enticingly under the Christmas tree. Or using gift certificates to search out wonderful end of the year deals. I'm sure all of your wishlists have grown quite long during the year. Talk about what you are reading this week or tell us all about your reading year. 1) How many books did you read this year? 2) Did you meet or beat your own personal goal? 3) Favorite book of 2012? Yes, you can list more than one and even break it down by genre if you choose. 4) Least favorite book of 2012 and why? 5) One book you thought you'd never read and was pleasantly surprised you like it? 6) One book you thought you'd love but didn't? 7) One book that touched you - made you laugh, cry, sing or dance. 8) Any new to you authors discovered and you can't wait to read more of their stories? 9) Name the longest book you read? Shortest? 10) Name the most unputdownable book you read? 11) Book that had the greatest impact on you this year? 12) What book would you recommend everybody read? 13) Share your most favorite cover(s) 14) Do you have a character you fell in love with? 15) What was your most favorite part of the challenge? Did you do any of the mini challenges? 16) What are your goals for the new year? To read more non fiction? To dip your toes into a mystery or a urban fantasy or horror or romance? What book are you most looking forward to reading in 2013? Congratulations and thank you to everyone for joining in. No matter how many books you finished this year, the important thing is that you read and that makes you a winner in my eyes. Reading to me is as necessary as breathing. And reading is also like drinking a fine wine or enjoying a beer with your friends. Whether you sip and savor or drink it down, the joy is in the experience. I'm glad to have shared the experience with all of you. I'm looking forward to hearing about everyone's reading year and to more fun in the coming new year. Link to week 51

Mr. Linky is all set up on the 52 Books blog to link to your reviews. 52 Books Blog - Pride and Prejudice: Happy birthday Jane Austen. To all those who haven't read P & P yet, now would be a good time. I'll haven't yet **gasp** so please join me this week in reading it or another one of her books this week. I know we're all planning for next year but now is the time to start thinking about which books this year were your favorites, not so favorite, new author or genre discoveries,or a subject you never thought you'd read about for our wrap up next week. I'll post the official unofficial list of questions next Sunday. And for a bit of lighthearted enjoyment - I posted Lewis Carrol's Poem Hunting of the Snark. What are you reading this week?

We will be continuing with the Well Educated Mind and Mind Voyages perpetual challenges and possibly the A to Z since I've been hearing some requests for it. New this year will be the Dusty Books (read your own books) and Chunkster challenge (books over 500 pages long). Also Read a Canadian Author challenge and I'm thinking we should choose one book for a readalong. And like this year, there will be mini weekly challenges that pop up here and there such as read a russian book (but we choose different countries), choose a book by the title, the name of a color in the title, compare a book with the movie, etc. I'm personally going to do a Non Fiction Reading Project and read one a month. If you all want to join me in that, we'll add it to the linkbar on the blog and you can choose a specific number or leave it up to chance. Here is the list we've come up with so far for Canadian authors. All the links lead to bios and books Saul Bellows - Humboldt's Gift Pierre Berton - Klondike Ernest Buckler - The Mountain and the Valley Robertson Davies - The Deptford Trilogy or The Salterton Trilogy Patrick deWitt - Sisters Brothers William Gibson - inventor of cyberpunk and speculative fiction, dual citizenship (Canadian/US) W.P.

Doesn't necessarily have to be horror, but can be scary, spooky, chilling, psychological thrillers type of stories.
