The February Reading Review

The February Reading Review

I’m a little disappointed in myself that I haven’t read as many books this month as I did in January! However I am still very much on target with the 50 book challenge I started this year.

As I’ve taken up the challenge to read 50 books (or more!) in 2011, I thought it would be a good idea to share my thoughts about the books I’ve finished reading every month.

If you work out the challenge, the goal is to read a book a week, give or take two weeks; thus I’m pretty pleased with myself to have finished six books so far with two still on the go. I haven’t yet finished the monster book of stories by Hans Christian Andersen yet with which I began the year (should I count it as more than one book?). However, I’m really enjoying the challenge so far.

The 50 Book Challenge

Following on from the positivity of my last post, I’ve taken on two new challenges for this year; firstly, I’m going to give the Post a Day 2011 WordPress challenge a try, and secondly, I’m going to take up a challenge I found on a friend’s blog.

The idea is to read at least 50 books in one year. Given my hermit-come-packrat tendencies when it comes to books, I’m up for that! (It may even solve this ‘book waiting list’ problem I have so I can go out and buy more books! YAY!)
