I know most people are giving a book and I might throw one in there or something extra, but I think a lot of you will enjoy picking out your own book so I figured this would work! 🙂

Ends: December 31st

Prize: $10 gift card to Borders

  1. Always love picking out my own book! My new year resolution is the same it always is to try and lose some weight..I have such a hard time with this one..lol


  2. My new years resolution is *very cliche* hit the gym more! But besides that I'd like to hit the books more, I've been slacking lately:(

    Great Giveaway!

  3. I honestly don't make new years resolutions..I found that when I started off the year with one, it never got accomplished, and I just felt bad at the end of the year. Now I just set goals for myself throughout the year, whenever I feel one needs to be set!


  4. Not really a resolution because rarely does anyone follow through with them. Actually a promise to exercise more to lose some weight and reduce my cholesterol.

  5. My resolutions are the usual stuff, diet, go to the gym, quit smoking, etc. I start my resolutions about 2-3 weeks into January. Starting once all the holiday celebrating is over and things are completely back to normal work better for me.

    I am a follower. I thought I was one through Google Connect, but turns out I was only a follower through my reader. Now, I follow both ways.

  6. My New Years Resolution is to spend more quality time with my family!! I am always with my family but everyone is usually doing their own thing like games, tv or reading. I want us to spend more time doing stuff as a family.

  7. My New Year's resolution will be the same one I've made for the past few years – not to make a resolution. you tend to set yourself up for failure if you set the bar too high. This way, there's no pressure.

  8. I am so opposed to resolutions, because as soon as you "resolve" you end up craving whatever it is.
    That being said, I always end up making them anyway. ;D
    This year, I am going to try to take a picture every day. We'll see how long that lasts.

  9. My New Years Resolution is to spend more quality time with my hubby. We get so busy and just can never seem to find the time for just (us).

  11. cliche but my resolution is to loose 10-15lbs. kinda easy to do since i work in a gym right? BAH! not even! hahaha.

    i am a new follower. =)

  12. I have so many tiny resolutions that I've made for myself. My biggest resolution is to continue with my writing and hopefully have something ready to query by the end of 2010.

  13. I follow!

    My resolution is eat less sugar. I would say "lose weight" but that's kind of cliche and I figure if I focus on the sugar thing that will help goal #2 a lot! Maybe I should say "bake less" because that contributes to the sugar load…

  14. My new year's resolution is to write everyday, even if only for 5 minutes, and even if it's only a journal entry or blog post.

    yay for gift cards! they're fun 🙂

  15. I'm already a follower. thanks for hosting!

    One of my resolution for 2010 is to learn (and wear) high heals again. I haven't worn them since I had my first son 8 years ago. Been lazy and now completely out of practice 🙂

  16. I'm a follower! My new year's resolution is to really focus on my 101 in 1001 days list because if I accomplish those things, it will be a great year!

  17. I always say I'm going to lose some weight but it probably won't happen! lol

    I do plan on reading more and I know that will happen!

    I follow your blog.

    I have a ton of things that I plan to do differently next year but I think the main one is to pay off all my 5 credit cards.

    I think I might have a spending problem, ha ha.

  19. My new year's resolution is for every new book I read, I will pull an old one off of my teetering TBR pile and read it as well.

  20. Oh, wow. Honestly, I think my New Year's Resolution this year is to lose the wait I've gained since August. It's only about six pounds, but it's proved hard to lose.

  21. My resolutions are so cliche – eat healthier, exercise more, spend less. I guess the reason they're cliche though is because most of us have trouble with them. 🙂

    I follow your blog.

  22. My New Year's Resolution is to stop worrying about things/people that I can not change. I will hope for the best, do what I can to help them, but I will no longer worry myself sick over their actions. ** I hope I can do it. **


  23. My new year's resolutions are to learn Japanese and start exercising for real (as opposed to just for one month of the year before forgetting abou tit).


  24. My New Years Resolution is to exercise more. I shoveled during the big snow storm that we just had and my bag is still killing me. So I figure if I exercise I'll build up my muscle strength.

  25. My New Years Resolution: I plan to get my home in order. Moved in 3 yrs ago, then son was here then daughter, son-in-law, and step-grand-daughter and finally just me and 3 cats. LOL. And try to learn more about blogging, tweeting, etc.

    Hold on, I came up with 3…

    1. Turn off the inner critic and write something new(revising my first novel killed creative freedom)

    2. Perform dance in a coffee shop

    3. Continue to reach for a healthy diet and weight.

    Can I just say this contest is brilliant?

  28. I have a couple of New Year's resolutions:

    1) To really get my blog looking good – I've read a lot of books but haven't written the reviews. sharon54220.wordpress.com

    2) To really lose some weight and keep it off.

    3) To try to quit smoking.
