Book Challenge

2


Last year Michele mentioned a few book challenges put out by J. Kaye's Book Blog, I was sorely tempted to join up, but didn't for a variety of reasons. This year, when Michele mentioned it again I thought, 'why not?' Okay, so there's probably still a million reasons why not, but I thought it would make for a fun and interesting way to keep track of the books I read and listen to this year. Not to mention the ever growing pile of non-fiction books I need to read, but often find an excuse to put aside for something a tad more fictional.. Interestingly enough, at the ate Morgan's reading he could probably succeed at this challenge. It might be fun to keep track of his books too, but we'll have to see about that.. As for me, this is where I'll keep track of my books. Which will include, for now, books that we read aloud to the kids as well. If you're interested in more information about the challenge you can check it out here.

Welcome to the 100+ Reading Challenge of 2010. I’m so excited to get this new year underway. I think there are going to be lots of great books published this year.

Have fun!
