I've done much better than usual at the library this year; been able to get the latest offerings from Alexander McCall Smith, for instance. Started Early, Took My Dog and The Weed that Strings the Hangman's Bag I bought new when they came out. I couldn't wait to read them and wasn't disappointed. If I'm honest, my most enjoyable reading has probably been re-reading: I Capture the Castle and the Cazalet Chronicles spring to mind. Then getting a Kindle has offered so much in the way of free downloads of classics and samples of new books. I do hope that in 2011 something will be published that I get really excited about.
