I’ve decided that 2014 will be the year I stop thinking and talking about writing a book blog and start actually writing it.
I love books. I’ve done the math, and I will never live long enough to read all the books I want to read. But I’m going to try anyway. Thanks to GoodReads and their awesome yearly challenges, I read 100 books in 2012, and 100 again in 2013. This year, I’m scaling back a bit to accommodate a new job and this new blogging thing. So, in 2014, I’m set to read 85 books. I love GoodReads challenges like this, because they appeal to my inner compulsive list-maker. They also motivate me to put down the TV remote and pick up a book when I’m wondering if it’s a terrible decision to watch a fifth episode of Big Bang Theory.
What I’d like to do on this blog is talk about what I’m reading, author/book events I go to, books I’m excited about, and other reading-related topics as they come to me. So tomorrow, my first “real” blog post (since I don’t know if you can count “Hey, I thought I’d write a blog!” as an informative post) will be about the best books I read in 2013. As Flavia de Luce would say, “Yaroo!” Let’s do this.
