Don't worry I will not bother you with boring details of my life.
I read a lot of Google Reader entries and I also have had a look at twitter.
And suddenly I felt lost. Lost is not the right word. It s more like:
I have been afraid to suffocate at the bottom of an endless tweets and posts waterfall. Information overflow.
That was scary. And lead me to the question: What am I doing with my blog? And the past month passed before my inner eye.
I must admit it was/is an up and down. Sometimes four consecutive posts. Then only a weekend post. Postponed reviews. All in all there was not much continuity. It always ends with the question: Shall I continue with the blog?
As long as someone visits my blog and reads posts I will continue.
I have a first draft of what I would like to do in future.
Today I would like to give you a rough overview of what I expect to read until end of 2010.
This year I want to read six books per month. That would mean 42 books by end of July.
So far I have read 32. I'm sure I will not read ten books in the remaining days. But I'm sure I will reach 72 books by end of 2010.
My current TBR pile consists of 28 books which you can see on following three pictures -of course I own a lot more unread books.

32 Books read plus 28 on TBR are in sum 60. Which will be the remaining 12 books? That depends on the delivery of books ordered in advance and which review copies I will get.
Anyway I hope to review as many of the books as possible. That means I will focus on reviews.
