The year of the...

In the land of Mary, I hererby declare this the year of the book and the quilt. I plan to read lots more this year, and I plan to quilt lots more. If the job situation continues as is, this year will be perfect for these endeavors. Please note that these are not New Year's resolutions. I have already finished my first book, The Shadow Roads, book 3 of The Swan's War by Sean Russell. Now, I did start this before New Year's, but I had only read about 50 pages.

Should I keep a running list of the books I read, and would anyone be interested in knowing what I think about them? I'm not sure that I would want to know what I think about them. Not all books need to be thought of. Next, I think, I'll start 1421: the Year China Discovered America by Gavin Menzies, that I have out of the library until the end of April. I should be able to finish it by then, right? I've never read a history book for fun, my only experience being reading books for college history classes. Or maybe I'll start in on Shadowmarch, the first book in Tad William's latest series...
