Yes, this is another slack post this week :D
Merc, over at Merc Rants, has made it her goal to read 100 books in the next 12 months. Agreeing that I also don't read enough, I've decided to join her challenge. However, it will be my own, manageable version of it! I'm not quite as insane as she is :D
I've looked at the list I keep, and in the past 12 months I've read 34 books, including full novels online (but in draft stages) and nonfiction.
In the next twelve months, I'd like to improve on that and read 60 books :) The rules:
* No minimum length, but we are talking books, not pamphlets. So some of the 30-or-so page e-books I counted last time won't count this time.
* No genre specifications, and nonfic is okay.
* I'd like to post reviews, but I'll see how I go :)
Heh, after writing all of the above, I realised a great sub-challenge: to read all the books that I actually own. At the moment I own a lot of books that I haven't had time to read; it would be great to have read them all by this time next year :D I'll try to compile a list of them over the next few days and put it in the sidebar in case anyone's interested, and I'll make my way through them slowly :)
First on the list, apart from research for my celtic britain short, is Malinche by Laura Esquivel, author of Like Water For Chocolate. It's quite literary in style, and is set in Aztec America. I'm a few chapters in, and it's going well so far :)
