Bookworms My Favorite!!

So I must say, in the past I have really not been much of a bookworm. I really liked to read when I was a kid and the books were easy, but I kind of let it fall to the wayside as I got older. (Mainly because I am usually a really slow reader.) But when Twlight came out I breezed through them and then one of my friends told me that I HAD to read the Harry Potter books. (I had been perfectly content just watching the movies...lol) In short, I loved them!! That same friend, Ms Jill, has encouraged me to read other books too and for that I am very grateful.

I have an account on Goodreads.com and am taking their reading challenge this year. I want to read 50 books by the end of 2012. Now 50 may or may not be a lot to you, but I think it is a good start for me. Who knows maybe I'll read more than 50! Are you taking the reading challenge? If not, would you like to take that challenge with me?! You don't need to read 50 books, but it would be fun to know who is taking the reading challenge.

Check out the challenge at this site http://www.goodreads.com/challenges/207-2012-reading-challenge

Just a few tips, if you do take the reading challenge, the Kindle app is Awesome!!! And also the group Pixel of Ink on Facebook finds free books on Amazon and posts them a few times a day.

If you join the challenge let me know. Maybe we can talk books in a few of these blog posts!! :)


  1. I'm taking the challenge too! Last year I did 36 out of 35... this year I'm aiming for 40. My first year I aimed for 50 and failed miserably... only reading 33.
    I'm on GoodReads too... friend me at NicAvesani
