It's Christmas Time
It's just under a month until Christmas and then a week or so after that it will be 2011. Here are some recommendations from my 2009 experience:
Take this period to slow down on adding new verses. It will be busier than normal despite our best intentions, there'll be more on your mind, and it's better to go in to 2011 with a nice clean slate. (This is from someone who hasn't made it to the end of his verses for quite a few weeks now!)
Set a realistic goal for 2011. Take a look at what you've achieved the past few months and then set a goal that you think you can achieve with a bit of a stretch. Remember, the more verses you have in your head, the more time you'll need for review so if you added 100 this year, you might want to consider adding 80 next year. We are working on helping those of us who keep falling behind on their verses so don't throw in the towel just yet. :)
Finally, hope springs eternal in the New Year. January 2 is a great day to get someone to join you in memorizing the bible. So get a friend to join you. It's much easier together.

Andy, thank you for all your wonderful work on the memverse site. I appreciate it greatly. I am sure I speak for others too.

Thank you andy
My goal is 500 more by Christmas 2011. (I will be in the junior level in the bible bee next year; my mom calls me a "sponge"). To God be the glory for memorizing His Word in our hearts.
