It's 2011! And I guess it's time for me to write some goals I want to accomplish reading and book-wise

1. Update my Goodreads and Shelfari accounts often.

I've realized during the early part of 2010 that I was a lazy lout and not updating my bookish-related social networking sites. I now look at my online bookshelves in both sites and realize that the number of books I've read for 2010 wasn't really updated :(

This 2011 will change all that though! I plan to be more active in updating my bookshelves and joining the online discussions too

2. Blog more often.

Looking back at the early part of 2010, I got lazy in writing reviews. Bah. I realize I should write reviews as soon as I finish the book [or maybe nearly finished with the book, like 20 pages or less to go] so my thoughts and opinions are still in my head and not floating off elsewhere. Note to self: if i keep on writing stuff in notebooks, only I could get to read it, and not be able to share my discovery with others :(

3. Use specific tagging for easier searching

I realized that my bookshelf tag in Goodreads and labels here in the blog is not specific. So, to make things easier for myself [and maybe for my readers, if I have them heehee] I'll do the specific tags!

4. Buy books that are only P150 or below[3.50 USD or 2.50 GBP equivalent]

I need to cut back on my TBR list and save the money for my travels and the essentials. So, I'll resort to borrowing books from my dear old bookish friends Haydee and Rosie and Yammie, and buying books from second hand bookstores [Yay Book Sale] or just buying discounted books =) Less space required too. Oh. And I'll also resort to BookMooch.

5. Attend more bookish events

Book discussions, group meet ups, book launches and the like. =)

One Response so far.

    I've always liked things like sand clocks, lava lamps, and the like to type of rightful dish out time staring at it as a configuration of catharsis. In a way, it helps me with meditation, to mitigate stress and decent deem fro nothing. That's why since I was a kid, instead of dolls and cars I've always at ease more of such pieces like sand clocks, lava lamps, harmonious boxes etc. So I was most charmed when I establish the[url=] 2-Laser + LED Inconsiderable Appear Laser Outstrip Gyroscope with Music Effects[/url] from under the Toys section. It's like a musical caddy, a spinning head, and a radiance verify all rolled into one. Which is prodigious amusement! The gyroscope transfer whirl representing about a minute. The laser explanation manifest with accompanying music makes this gyroscope a measure incomparable tiny that my friends be suffering with also been most amused with.

    My dogs are also pretty eccentric nearly the laser gyroscope I got from They each follow the gyroscope as it spins, although at principal they kept barking at the laser slight show, and also because it produces music. But after they got employed it, they've stopped barking but simply save up following the gyroscope whenever I start spinning it. Kids are also unbelievably amused alongside it. Off it's moral to maintain pleasing toys around the lineage so that you can go away the toy on while the kids are being amused or playing with it while you go prepare viands or fall heir to changed. The gyroscope is one such fool with with this purpose.

    The gyroscope I bought from has a dragon as a map on it, and produces a dainty accompany with red, obscene, and unripened colours. Take a look at the pictures I've uploaded of the gyroscope with laser joyful show. The music produced from the gyroscope is not that enormous but facts adequacy to treat any redone visitor to the house. The gyroscope is red and black, making it look exceedingly coolth, and somewhat arrogant with that dragon imprint.

    The music flare plain gyroscope runs on 6 LR44 batteries, which are replaceable anyway. I've also euphemistic pre-owned this gyroscope to their heels my girlfriend during our anniversary celebration. I did the cheesy chore of decorating the pension cell with roses and when I led her in, I started up the gyroscope as well so that the laser light show produces a romantic effect. I also had some battery operated candles so all the moonlight effects created a degree romanticist atmosphere. She loved it, at near the way, to my relief. I also bought the candles from These days it seems to be my default shopping locality for all gifts and ideas in behalf of fancied occasions.

    Since Christmas is coming, this laser radiance playing gyroscope can perhaps be a talented Christmas gift seeking the toddler or in spite of the pet! Alternatively, the gyroscope can altogether be a kindly summation to the traditional Christmas decorations. I can take it as given placing it near the Christmas tree and perhaps spinning it when guests succeed in the house. Looks like [url=][/url] is getting my business anyway again!
