I read on another site about this book challenge where you pick the number of books that you want to read a year and then read. Well, someone who I would consider a mentor and Delta Zeta sister of mine, Becca Obergefell, committed last year to reading 52in52. I remember seeing throughout the year her talking about this challenge. I have decided to take on this challenge myself.
In 2012, I will commit myself to reading 52 books this year- that comes down to 1 book a week! Not that bad (divide the total number of pages you need to read by how many days & then you have your daily goal). I am one of those people who looooove to buy books but then I put them on my bookshelf and forget about them (not entirely forget, but just overlook them because I know they are there…yelling at me to read them).
These books won’t be just for fun, some will be educational and some will be classics. I want to be engaged & learning with each books I open. If you have any suggestions on books for me to read (and borrow), let me know!
I am going to start of the year by reading books that I already own, this will probably take me into the first 15-20ish weeks of the year (see, I told you I was a book hoarder).
My first book (and then 2 & 3) will be The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins. I bought the boxed, hardback set about 2 months ago or so but I haven’t read it yet! This is where I am starting. Check back here as I log each week’s book to this post (and add a link to where you can purchase this).
Week 2: Catching Fire; Suzanne Collins
