My First Book Challenge!

I am no longer a book challenge virgin well I think I’m not…technology and I do not always see eye to eye so fingers crossed I have signed up to the challenge correctly and not signed up for some weird wonderful cult instead….

In order to keep myself focussed reading wise this year I have decided to go for a straightforward, general challenge as hosted by Book Chick City here http://www.bookchickcity.com/2010/12/sign-up-100-books-in-year-reading.html.  I intend to read 100+ books this year, my record keeping has been rather harum scarum this year and hopefully this challenge will help me through periods of readers block etc.  I don’t like to be too limited in what genres I read and very rarely schedule reads, going where the reading muse takes me so I think this is an achievable goal.

PS I’ve just realised I haven’t done the right link and haven’t properly joined up so bear with me BCC!!! ;-)

    Stu, I’m not very fond of record keeping but have kept a book journal for the past 5 years or so – problems arise when I forget to write the books down and spreadsheets and I do not see eye to eye! This might encourage me to be more disciplined…perhaps…

    And Sarah, have you added up how many you read last year??? I am not a big fan of statistics – lists, yes, stats, no… ;-)
