I was reading a blog the other day (and for the life of me, I can't remember which one) that talked about books. What they're reading, what they've read in the past. I think this blogger had even set a goal for themselves - 50 books in a year, or something like that. (If this was your blog, I'm sorry I forgot it was yours.)
That got me thinking that maybe I'd like to do that, too. Set a reading goal, I mean. I don't know if could hit 50 - that's almost a book a week and this should be a very busy year for me (graduation + job hunt + starting a new job [hopefully!] + normal life stuff = busy).
I'm going to aim for 30 this year. The hard part of this is going to be remembering to WRITE THEM DOWN and post them here.
BOOK The First:
The first book I finished this year was Twilight. I finished it in a couple of days. The teenage girl that lives in my heart? She gets this book. (Hell, the adult woman that lives in my heart gets it, too.) It was a fast read, and I really enjoyed it.
That's it. That's all I've finished so far.
But I've currently got 3 others going. I'm almost finished with New Moon. It wasn't my intention to read that one right now. I had started The Hour I First Believed by Wally Lamb (so far? LOVE!) but Bella and her troubles kept creeping in. So I gave in as I was obsessing about what happens at her 18th birthday party. (There was a sneak-peek preview in Twilight - they gave us the first chapter. If there is a preview chapter in New Moon, I'm going to try to NOT read it.) The third book I've got going is Just After Sunset by Stephen King. Since it's a bunch of short stories, this one is easier to read slowly. A story every few days and I get my SK fix.
