This year I decided to take part in a challenge to read 50 books in 2012. Unfortunately I fell short of my goal, quite considerably as I only made it to 24. However, the only person I am challenging is myself and while I didn't manage to reach 50, I did make more time to sit and read than I have done in recent years.
Not one to give up, I am setting myself the same challenge for 2013. I received a new Kobo eReader from the Mister for Christmas so I hope that this will help me find more time to sneak in a few pages here and there and perhaps squeeze more in.
Would you like to join me?
I would love anyone who would like to join in to link up with me, perhaps blog your book reviews if you like and share your favourites to give me (and others) inspiration for which titles to read next, I know that I am always looking for new material to sink my teeth into.
I have updated my 50 Books for 2013 Challenge tab so that you have a point of reference to come back to if you need, or to share with others if you wish. I would love to have fellow lovers of books to share the challenge with me so if you are going to join in please leave a comment and let me know!
I have made a button and you can also join in with hashtag #50Books2013 so I can find you on twitter too. It's not a race or a competition, just a gentle personal reminder to make time for ourselves to enjoy reading. There will be no set day to link up, just post & link as and when and then I will do a little monthly round-up and share your posts and anything else you would like to add. I aim to post the round-up around 28th-30th of the month so if you can get your posts to me (email or @ me on Twitter) by the 26th/27th at the latest that would be grand. I hope that some of you will join in with me.
If you would like, you can leave your blog URL here so that all participants can check back and find each other too. Thanks!
