Hello and Welcome!

Red House Books is going through a bit of a update!

I've always had a pretty clear vision of what I wanted this space to be but I've been detoured from my path by...lots and lost of other people's opinions and ways of doing things...

I'm committed to this little chunk of the interweb but I've also branched out into other places so! Now it's time to think of Red House Books as more of a hub of all things me! And Me is a hell of a lot of book love!

Stay tuned!

2010 The End Is Here!

There you have it folks. I got all those last minute posts done.

A few very last minute things!
*2010 brought me to BEA, I celebrated my 1 year blogoversary, posted 327 times, read 144 books, gained 100s of new followers, learned the ropes of Twitter, started a Facebook account for Red House Books and shared much book love!  
Among other things ;)

In 2011 I hope to:
*Continue to blog because I love it not because it's a chore or a 'job'
*Become a better blog follower - meaning, only follow blogs I know I will enjoy reading and COMMENT MORE!
*Work those social networks more - engage in conversations on Twitter instead of just lurking, update that FB page more, post more reviews to Goodreads -- be more outgoing!
*Be more organized! In blogging, in reading, in life!
*Attend BEA11 :)
*Read! Read! Read!
Among other things ;)

Thanks for sticking with me today and everyday! I hope you all know how much I appreciate you and how very happy every comment makes me. You guys rock!

I couldn't have done all I have in the last year without you guys! Hope you stick with me in 2011!

I hope everyone has a safe and happy New Years!!

  1. Congrats on a great year, and I hope 2011 will be even better for you! Happy New Year! :)

  2. Happy New Year!! Hope it turns out well for you.

  3. You have accomplished a lot this year and I hope that you continue to accomplish the things you want to in the new year! Happy New Years!

  4. Happy New Year and good luck with your 200 books! I totally need to comment more in the upcoming year as well.

  5. Commenting more is one of my goals, too. It's easy for me to flip through my little reader and have thoughts and not share them. But, it's better to let others know how much I appreciate their words. Thanks for sharing your resolutions!

  6. Sounds like you've got a good set of goals for yourself there! Wishing you a very good - and productive - new year.

  7. Seems like 2010 has been a great year for you and I hope 2011 is even better :]

  8. It's not new year yet here, but happy new year! :) You did a lot and have a lot more coming in the new year! :) Wish I could've gone to BEA but it's just at a bad time of year for me. Maybe in a year or two.

  9. Happy New Year!! Hope you meet all your goals for 2011.

  11. Those are good resolutions. I'd like to attend BEA too...we'll see if I can make it happen.


  12. Congrats on a great year. '11 will be even better!

  13. I am hoping I can go to BEA this year too! So excited!

  14. You almost posted once a day! That's great! I also need to stop lurking on twitter and talk more, haha.


  15. Yay! Congrats on all your achievements. :D

    Love your blog! Keep it up.

  16. Great goals and congrats on such a fantastic 2010. I hope to see you at BEA in 2011! All the best and Happy New Year.
