In 2010 I resolved to read 100 books in a single year. I failed. 2011 saw the challenge renewed and the birth of this blog, designed to keep me on track and give me a place to record my thoughts about my reading. I failed again. Now 2012 is here, and I am beginning the challenege anew. Please feel free to offer suggestions for books, thoughts about my reviews, or ideas for the blog. Thanks!
Good luck TCN! I have a suggestion… you could read all of my Nicholas Sparks books 🙂
Thats unfair. To the books.
Almost a type of Gluttony, no offense.

This is a great idea! I really look forward to reading the rest of your reviews; I’m always looking for new reading material, and you seem to have a nice variety on your list.

So ironically enough the way I found your site is because I have started the same challenge and was going to use this web address for my blog…but, sadly, you’d already stolen it. 🙂 Happily though, it meant I found another book read who is taking the challenge and it’s been great reading your blog.

I just stumbled across your blog. I started out with the 50 book challenge last year (read more than 50) but got bogged down in writing my posts and just sort of stopped. I didn’t set a number this year and am just reading and trying to make myself post my books.
I’ve subscribed via RSS as it’s always interesting to see what others are reading, not that I need to add to my list of books.
Thanks for stopping by! It is definitely easy to get bogged down with both reading and posting. I struggle to maintain a reasonable pace at times. I look forward to checking out your blog!
I don’t think you’re going to make it this year either, but if you accept ARC copies, I can help you get one or two closer to reaching that goal for 2012. I checked your list, and my book may not be a genre you review, but if you read fantasy at all, send me an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll go into more details. If not, thank you very much for your consideration and you’re getting closer! You’ve got some great classics on there.

I like what you’re doing. I set my self a goal a few years ago well, whatever they are. so I started to read what most people in the western world consider western classics. I’m just just reading all of the very popular “great books .” I don’t know where I’m going I think I’m trying to reach some sort of self actualization or spiritual growth. What is your goal? I’d like to hear from you if you have time to respond to me. Thank you, sincerely, Frank G.
What happened, why did you stop?
