Drawing inspiration from the movie "Julie and Julia," and other challenges I've seen on websites like goodreads.com and shelfari.com, I'm going to challenge myself this year in my reading.
My goal is to read at least 50 books this year. I do not see this as an unreasonable goal - I think I can easily read a book a week - even while going to law school. The logic being that though I may not get through a book every week, at certain points during the year (summer, spring break, etc.) I will be going through books faster than one per week. I actually think this may be kind of easy for me, but we'll see. I may be forced to eat crow.
The books have to be ones that I started in 2010 and finished in 2010. I have not yet started The Reef, so that will be the first. I also am allowing myself to include the books I read for my Law and Literature class, because it's my challenge and I can do what I want. I'll be spending a lot of time with those books, so they should count.
I will continue to comment on / review the books I read here on my blog. I will keep track of the numbers here also - in the box to the right.
Original? No. Challenging? Maybe. Narcissistic? Yes! But so what? It's a blog - of course it's self-centered.
