Hi There!

    Mark, I forgot you had a website, until I checked it out and saw your awesome New Years Resolution fro 2010. I started something pretty similar……/For_the_Love_of_Paper/For_the_Love_of_Paper.html

    Hey Erin! So you are just starting? What am amazing and ambitious project. Some of your book list looks like fun, while some of it looks like work :) (The Odyssey! War and Peace!) It seems like you have a good balance. If you don’t mind, I might use your list next year! It depends how much reading I can do once our son is born.

    A couple of tips
    - start out strong, try to read 2 books a week for the first little bit.
    - get your books from the library, due dates can be a great motivator to get them read by a certain date
    - set allotted time in your schedule to read
    - get some good earplugs (
    - If you find yourself lapsing pickup an easier book.

    I’ve subscribed to your blog, and I can’t wait to read your reviews :)
