Yes, I’m aware it’s been almost a year since I wrote a blog post. Sometimes I find I have nothing to talk about, and other times I feel what I do have to say isn’t worthy of a blog post. Hence, no posts. I need to change that, so I’ll be starting up my usual posts of book and movie reviews once more, and possibly some updates on my writing as that happens.
What’s prompted me to break my silence is the fact that I’m making a conscious decision to read more. I can’t think of 10 books I read last year, and that’s sad. So, I’ve put a goal of 20 books up on Goodreads for their “2012 Reading Challenge”. It’s not the 100 book goal that my friend Dawn has made, but I’m a slower reader, but that is actually something I do on purpose, because I want to absorb what I’m reading. Not saying she DOESN’T, but I know that when I rush, I miss things, and I want to give each book the time it (and its author) deserves.
This is my progress:
Won’t you join me in the challenge? Friend me on Goodreads and let me follow your progress! I’m hoping to exceed my goal of 20 books, but I think it’s a worthy goal nonetheless. Expect reviews of my first two completed books, Inheritance by Christopher Paolini and The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern soon. But in the meantime, Happy Reading!
