Post by NCW director Kerrie Flanagan
Thank you all for participating in ReBooWee! From December 1st until today, February 1st, we all logged in a total of 43 books (not counting the one's you read this past week). This is fabulous! I hope you enjoyed it.

ReBooWee kick started my reading habits again. I had gotten lazy and was spending way too much time in front of the t.v. each night. Now I am balancing my t.v. viewing with my evening reading.

I hate to see ReBooWee end even though I haven't done as well as I should have. It has pushed me to read more. Such a great list of books too. Thanks for hosting this. Looking forward to see what's next. :)

This was just the push I needed to make myself sit down and read at least 30 minutes in the morning before I turned to other tasks (and a little more at bedtime). Last week I read another Deon Meyer (the South African author) thriller: Blood Safari. He puts so much local color into his novels that I feel I've learned a lot about the land and the culture.

It's over already? I had my next book lined up! Oh well, I'll read anyway.

What's next Kerrie?

I didn't offically participate - although I think it's a GREAT idea!! Last week I finished The First Excellence by Donna Carrick & started Betrayals by Carla Neggers. Both great reads!

Even though ReBooWee has ended, you can keep going and share with me what you are reading.
Carolyn, I don't have anything lined up yet, but give me a week or so and you never know.

This past week, I read Between a Rock and a Hard Place by Aron Ralston, which proved to be a riveting read. I really wanted to read this before seeing the movie. What I've learned from ReBooWee: I want to continue reading at least a book a week for all of 2010. I've also realized how important books, reading, and literacy are to our culture and communities. Thanks for the great motivation with ReBooWee, Kerrie. Happy Reading!
