Santa brought me a Kindle this year since I was such a good girl. It is really cool and I was downloading some books last week to get me started. I was updating my Goodreads lists with all the books I want to read and a couple of the books I managed to read last month. I was surprised to see that I only read 14 book for 2010. That number is a little low compared the the past so I figured it was time for a challenge. Well, actually I wanted to join a group to connect with people and chat about books which turned into me joining a challenge.
So, I joined a challenge group where the goal is to read 100 books this year. I think I am out of my mind to go from 14 to 100. Broken down, I'll need to read 8 books a month. Hmmm.....sounds like it will be tough but I am going to give it a go anyway.
I am currently reading Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen. I saw the movie with Emma Thompson and Hugh Grant a few years back and enjoyed the story. Now seemed like a good time to read the book.
I still need to figure out the rest of my to read list for January. The group I joined has a list of challenge subjects for the 8 books. Doing the challenge subjects is optional but I think it will keep things interesting for me.
