year of the rabbit

I don’t know about you, but for me, 2011 has been a bit of a disaster so far.

In the final days of 2010, I had so many plans and ideas…and then? Err. Yeah. Nothing happened. Whoops.

So, I’ve decided that the Chinese New Year is the perfect time to begin again. Forget all those New Year’s Resolutions – I’m making Chinese New Year’s Resolutions.

Happy Year of the Rabbit!

Some recommended reading for the Year of the Rabbit!

Watership Down is without a doubt, THE best book about psychic talking bunnies ever written. No, really – it’s amazing.

Adventure? Check.

Suspense? Check.

Bunnies? Check, check and CHECK!

Watership Down has everything. Read it.
