Part of my self-imposed “Bloggerversary Challenge – 2014,” I committed myself to reading and reviewing four books selected by readers within the calendar year. Of the winners, I actually reviewed Mansfield Park and What I Loved. (You can even check out my reviews by clicking on the linked titles.
While I finished Out of Africa, I failed to even finish 1001 Nights. In honor of my upcoming Bloggerversary, I anticipate doing something to remedy this fact. Please stay tuned to this Bat Channel – ETA Monday, January 12, 2015.
Wow, it’s 2015! I’ve been posting a lot about resolutions. Of course, I must include some challenges! For my annual book quantity on Goodreads, I’ve challenged myself to read 52 books in 2015. This means I must read one book per week this year. I’ve not set any parameters beyond a number of books but I normally read books that are around 200 pages long. Time will tell how I’ll do with this goal.
Over the years, I’ve casually participated in various reading groups on Goodreads. A recent favorite group is Around the World in 80 Books. I’ve slowly taken literary treks across the Earth. I hope to “visit” many places throughout the year.
Lastly, I’ve accepted Herding Cats & Burning Soup’s challenge “New To You 2015 Reading Challenge!” Find out more by clicking on this handy, dandy button!
A huge thanks to Ryan for sending me the Fortune Magazine article! Many books were considered the best of 2014. When possible, I’ve tried to find the first book in series.
