I've seen groups in various places on the internet challenging themselves to read 50 books in 2007. Well, I couldn't really do that while I was in school so I'm starting now and will try to read 50 books by 7/31/08. It doesn't seem like that many, but I tend to lapse every once in a while and take weeks to finish a book. Hopefully, this will make me either sit down and read or stop reading something horrible to get on to the next book. I'm going to wait and start counting with the next book I read because I don't want #1 on the list to be the crappy vampire novel I just read.
I also joined Shelfari, which might be of interest to some of you. I don't know if LibraryThing users will need another book website, but I like this one because it's free and I can import my library from Delicious Library into it. If you join and want to add me as a friend, my name over there is BookishlyFab.
