When I began this blog (actually I changed genre from adult reads to children and young adult in 2010), I had no idea what I was getting myself into. Meaning this genre was huge! I have learned so much and I'm continuing to learn. I have enjoyed the reading adventure. I am looking forward to 2011 and what magic carpet rides in literature I will take.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Great blog! Keep the good work going! May I just add Chronicles Of Narnia to your list (I read some of them this year) and my Tale Of The Rock Pieces (it was published a few months ago)... Do you use sites like, cafepress. com, fiverr? They could be a good way to promote your blog/posts and to help "remove" stupidity in the streets like headlines on t-shirts, fridge-magnets, cups, etc: My Boyfriend kisses Better Than Yours, FBI - female body inspector, etc. Not everything we see and think of should be about sex, right? It would be much better if there were more nice pictures of mythical creatures, good thoughts, poems from fantasy genre, etc? I'm allanbard there, I use some of my illustrations, thoughts, poems from my books (like: One can fight money only with money, Even in the hotest fire there's a bit of water, etc). Best wishes! Let the wonderful noise of the sea always sounds in your ears! (a greeting of the water dragons'hunters - my Tale Of The Rock Pieces)
