When "surfing" blogs recently, I came across an interesting challenge that I decided to participate in. Read Your Own Books is a great opportunity to read some of the books that I've bought, but haven't yet read. While it is not required to create a list, I wanted an idea of what I was getting myself into. After perusing my bookshelves with pen in hand, I made a list of 58 books that I have not read. Wow! I have many other reference books, motivational books, decorating books and cookbooks that I have not read cover-to-cover, but I am not including them on my list. Novels only!! And I'm surprised (or chagrined) to say that I had doubles of two books!!! Those are first on my list, after I finish my current book. I also belong to a monthly book club. January's selection is "Pillars of the Earth" by Ken Follett. I have to finish that also.
Sounds like I'll be so busy reading, in addition to all of the other things I have to do like work, laundry, cleaning, etc., that hopefully I will steer clear of "snack-mode" so I can stay on track with Weight Watchers. My goal for "Read Your Own Books" is twenty books. Not sure if I can do it, but I'm going to give it my best shot. I love lists and it will be such fun to cross books off this list. If for nothing else, I'm sure I will meet more bloggers through this challenge and that is always a wonderful thing. Happy reading!!
