Reading Challenges #SundaySalon #Happy2023 — 5 Comments

  1. You did a great job on your challenges last year. Good luck on your challenges this year. I am planning to finish at least one book this year, too. Mine, though, will be very small.

    And to celebrate the new year…
    Here’s a bit from a lovely old (1850!) poem:

    “Ring out the old, ring in the new,
    Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
    The year is going, let him go;
    Ring out the false, ring in the true…

    Ring out a slowly dying cause,
    And ancient forms of party strife;
    Ring in the nobler modes of life,
    With sweeter manners, purer laws…

    Ring out false pride in place and blood,
    The civic slander and the spite;
    Ring in the love of truth and right,
    Ring in the common love of good.”

    And a toast: Here’s to a year of wonderful reads and small joys!
