Happy New Year from GalleyCat

GalleyCat would like to wish all our readers have a safe and happy holiday. We will be taking a break over the long weekend, but we will be back next week with Consumer Electronics Show coverage and all the news you need to survive 2010.

In the meantime, go visit our digitally obsessed sibling eBookNewser for some year-end e-reading device news. If that’s not enough, check out our collection of Best Writing Music of 2009 lists and our annual Pet Parade. And keep imprisoned Chinese author Liu Xiaobo in your thoughts over the holiday-watch a number of great writers support Xiaobo in that GalleyCat video.

Finally, include your New Year writing resolutions in the comments section. We’ll round up the responses in 2010.
