Happy New Year

Keeping a blog is a contemplative thing. Very introspective if you do it honestly, and if you go back and read your past posts, it is easy to see how easily people change or maybe even go different directions, even though they never knew they were making a decision.

Of course, we are book bloggers and although the manifestation of our feelings and identity, always evident through our book reviews and interactions with fellow bloggers, is different than those who simply type about their day-to-day life, the essence is still the same. We write about what matters, and after reading so many books and interpeting so many ideas, we know that something matters only if we see it that way. We embrace the subjective, the abstract, but in turn get an amazing view into ourselves, because the books we read are who we are inside.

This is why I would like to thank each and every single one of my fellow book bloggers. Thank you for writing such wonderful posts and making me want to write as well. Thank you for reading all those wonderful books, thus making me want to read them. Most of all, thank you for being open, honest and supportive. We are making each other's words matter and thus liberating ourselves enough to spot what's right and wrong with the world we live in.

I wish you all the best in 2010, in terms of health, wealth or any other way you define happiness.

I couldn't agree with your sentiments more and could only fail to put them in words as brilliantly as you have. Have a wonderful New Year and we all look forward to hearing and reading more from you.

Happy New Year to you also! This is quite a thoughtful post and makes me think also. I like to go back and see what I have written and how it has changed, for better or worse.
I agree each of us grows because of our interactions and changing reading habits. I am glad to have expanded my book world. Here's to a great 2010!

HAPPY New Year to you too. I love blogging about books because many of my friends and family don't share the same passion for books as me. So I am so happy to find a community where I can share my thoughts and read other bookworms thoughts as well. I love visiting your blog. I hope 2010 will be an awesome year for you!!!
