Last year I ambitiously decided that I would try to read fifty books in 2011. By the 31st of December I had managed to read just under half of that with twenty-one. This was mainly due to the fact that I started a new job but National Novel Writing Month impacted that too; I didn’t like to read while I was writing lest my prose be influenced too heavily by the style of the book and author I was reading. These are things I didn’t plan ahead for but this year will be different!
Onwards with 2012! Thirty books this time, and I’m making my start with The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson. A book I have been desperate to read for months.
Good luck if you’re attempting the Goodreads challenge yourself and if you’re not? Why not give it a shot! You might stumble on some gems this year that you wouldn’t otherwise!
