my 6-week challenge

on April 16, 2013

i love books.

and i love to read.

i have been known to wander around barnes & noble for hours just looking at all the books & making a list of ones to read, ones to buy, & ones to check-out from the library. since getting my kindle 2 years ago, i’ve become somewhat of a book-hoarder…having downloaded tons of free books that i one day plan hope to read. also, while on vacation in st. croix, the villa we were staying in had tons of books & i just had to make a list of all the ones i wanted to “check-out” either digitally on my kindle or the physical book from the library. so, my love of books follows me everywhere!

so, happy with the fact that i’ve managed to finish 5 books over the last 6 weeks, i’ve given myself a challenge for the next 6 weeks. because i don’t have enough going on in my life πŸ˜‰

since the kids have 6 weeks of school left, i’m going to challenge myself to read at least 6 books in that time. my only “stipulation” is that it has to have more than 250 pages…other than that, there are no rules. and honestly, i already have the 6 books picked out…most i’m starting from scratch, but a couple will be ones that i need to finally finish.

so, now i’m off to “get-my-read-on”! these are just the first 4 that i have on my list and there’s no common theme between any of them!
