Happy New Year everyone! I hope that you have all had a wonderful start to your new year and have started on your resolutions. I know I have. This year I have a few bloggie resolutions, which are:

1) Read more. I read a good amount last year but I also wasted time doing nothing when I could have been reading... so I will be more focused on reading!

2) Find more innovative ways to incorporate my students in blogging about books. My kids read great books and we are constantly having amazing conversations about them, so this year I will be letting them venture into the blogging world with me.

3) Blog more. There are many great literary based things going on and it is my goal to keep you all informed throughout the year and keep updated with it all.

I have other personal goals and resolutions, but those will stay with me for now!

One of my favorite gifts this year is my new Kindle from Santa :)! My hubby now has my first generation so we have been downloading books today (and transferring a ton in my case) and I have come across some great freebies and wanted to share them with you all. If you don't have an ereader, don't fret! You can download Kindle for PC HERE. I also found a great site that keeps up to date with freebies out there and you can check it out HERE. On to the freebies...
