ah, the first post to a new blog...

you may be wondering why i'm here. well, grab a coffee and let me explain.

it all started with a challenge. this challenge to read 75 books in 2010 has been a good thing. it is forcing me to closely examine how i spend my leisure time. if you're anything like me, too many moments when you could be doing something productive get eaten up by mindless diversions.

but while it's a good thing on that front, i have noticed that it is taking over my original blog, shards of light, which i began for my own writing... and the last thing that i would want for all this reading to do would be to stop me from doing my own writing,

so this is my solution.

while i will, from time to time, mention books and my love of them on shards of light—when something is as big a part of ones life as reading is to me, it is inevitable—this is the place where you will find my book reviews, thoughts, etc.

so, welcome, kick off your shoes, grab another coffee and let's talk about books!

...and because there isn't much about the actual books themselves, here is a bit of where i am...
currently reading: Murder in Montmartre by Cara Black {book number 9, which will be completed today}
favorite book read in 2010 so far: The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
