The 50 Book Challenge

When 2012 rolled around the corner I told myself I wanted to give myself a challenge this year.  Ironically enough, I came upon a Tumblr blog that was all about books and the moderator was doing this 50 Book challenge where she reads 50 books in a year.  Immediately I knew that this would be my challenge - and so the month of January started and I began to read.
Then life came knocking on the door and decided to limit my reading time and now with the end of January in our midst, I have read only 3 little books...young adult novels at that!  The prospect of only 3 books read in a month and 47 left in 11 months is a bit daunting I must admit.  However, the first steps are always slow.
This blog is going to focus on the books I read in the time of the Spring 2012 semester.  I will post reviews on the books I read - though they will be far from professional I will give them my best effort.
January books - Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie, The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, and War Horse by Michael Morpurgo.

  1. I like this resolution! I work at a library and love when people challenge themselves like that. Though sometimes it takes a little while to get used to it. By gentle with yourself, especially with the semester.
