Of course I had to like this, there are dogs and books. I also like the quote Jeremy picked to go with it:

Sounds like a good preface for next year’s reading challenge, which I have made preparations to completely document on this blog instead of Goodreads. Goodreads will probably get snippets of the content, just so I can log the challenge, but most thoughts, status updates, and reviews will end up here. I want to do a lot more reviewing and thinking about what I read in 2019, at least for the books that require thinking. I also want to document the enjoyment I get out of the books that don’t require thinking and are just escapes from daily life. I think all of us start out the year with so much hope and excitement for the things to come, and then when we get bogged down with life we forget about all that hope we had. Documenting all those little moments of enjoyment or thanks or any other good thing can serve as reminders of that when things get crazy.

I think we should bring back hat tips,so in the spirit of that, I discovered this thanks to Chris Aldrich, who always manages to find interesting things to pass on and make me think, plus all the site structure help.
