I went to a cheap book sale and got like 14 books at once, and shortly ever bought 5 more at a thrift store. With such a pile of books waiting for me, I forced myself to take one with me every day so I could read on the bus/tram/train/whenever I had to wait somewhere. And it’s working, I’ve already read 7 books in just a couple of weeks :)
Also: signing up to Goodreads is a good idea, helps you keep excited!
It’s definitely worth doing, it’s just key to make it a habit; always taking a picture. I’m not a photographer or even enthusiast so I don’t care about the quality of the photos, I take them with my webcam and cellphone. I’m almost finished now, will be doing 2011 as well. I’m planning on printing all of the pictures and make it a little 365 days book :)
It’s so much better than a diary, because it’s less effort to really keep up with it – the main reason why I (and many with me) have never been able to keep one.
I still use flickr for my pictures, but they have this rule now that only lets you have 200 pictures max. So that sucks, I had to printscreen them all and save in a special folder 8-)
So be aware of that.
