BOOKKEEPING: The Reading Status Report
I’m glad I signed on for this one, and I think liking it so much may be one reason I’m cutting back on accepting books for review. In the same spirit, but with a slightly different twist, I’ve decided to join the 2010 Reading From My Shelves Project hosted by Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea. That challenge has the additional requirement that participants must pass on their books once they’ve read them, and that’s something I normally do anyway. I will pledge to read 25 books for the challenge (which can cross with other challenges), which happens to be the just over the minimum of 20 allowed, but I’m now feeling a little more confident about a slightly bigger commitment.
I guess I could have closed out this one sooner, but I wasn’t sure how much more I might accomplish in November. I did better than expected, but most of that is directly due to participating in the 24-Hour Readathon last month. I’m also choosing not to count an e-book for this challenge, since it doesn’t actually occupy a shelf.
