  10. I don't make them myself but I saw an idea this year that I might try. Take a jar (good size) and throughout the year when something positive happens, write it down and put it in the jar. At the end of the year read all of the notes!

  35. I have made a couple of New Years resolutions this year. :) Typically, I usually don't.. but 2012 wasn't a good year, and I wanted to have something to work towards.

    Finishing school, finding a better job and having fun guest reviewing are just a few of the resolutions! :)

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  36. I've made a few New Years resolutions. Only one that is book related. Since my TBR/wish list is longer than "The Song That Never Ends". More and more great new releases keep coming along and pushing the older titles further back on my list. My 2013 list is already over 60 titles and growing, I have resolved to this year read at least 40 books from my TBRs that were written prior to 2010.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Thanks so much for the chance to win. It's a great way to start the year. No major resolutions beyond reading a lot (let's go 50 books!) and staying active (jog, jog!), but I hope you have a great year :)

    Thanks again!
