My “12 in ’12” Reading Challenge
If you stop by this blog often, the fact that I’m a huge bookworm certainly isn’t news. Clearly, I’m passionate about the written word!
But I picked up some bad habits, especially once I was out of school and not accountable to anyone for what I was reading. I’m sorry to say that when I started this blog, my “literary diet” had been mostly YA novels (hello, Hunger Games!) and magazines.
A very embarrassing state of affairs for a self-proclaimed word nerd, let me tell you! So I decided it’s time to get back to the Big Girl Bookshelf. This spring, I set myself the goal of reading 12 books before the end of 2012. Real, grown up books, mind you – nothing I would be embarrassed to be seen with at Starbucks, in other words. No more hiding behind my e-reader!
As of October 15th, 2012, I’m over one third of the way there!
5 / 12 books. 41% done!
