There’s still time!!

There’s still time to fulfill your new year resolution!(16 days!!)

I have fulfilled mine! What about you?

I made only one new year resolution this year. It was to read 12 books this year! As of today, I read 13! 😀

I used to read a lot when I was a kid. I used to go to the library every Saturday after school (gymnastic practice)  and I read 4 books a week but this stopped when I started Secondary school as I had to concentrate on getting good grades!!  I didn’t read much but textbooks. 😦  I also spent lots of time at band practice. Then the internet was invented and I just spent lots of time online and didn’t read much!!

I got it free on World Book Night. When I read the blurb at the back, I knew I would like it immediately – it is set in the post apocalyptic times. I like stories like that!

I have also just realised it was made into a movie in 2009. I am definitely going to watch it!

Anyway, have you fulfilled your 2012 New Year Resolution yet?
