I think that is one of my favorite questions in the world. I love knowing what everyone is reading.....
Last week I challenged myself to read:
The Iron Witch
one library book
I did pretty good!
Finished: The Iron Witch, see review
Finished: Bigger Than a Breadbox
Read a huge chunk of Fateful
Put a large dent in Anna Dressed In Blood (ebook)
So this week is clean up week: finish these two and maybe start Ashes.
Now for a recap of some cool things that are happening: there are several blogger holiday swaps! They are so much fun. I have buttons on my sidebar for anyone who is interested. Warning: these sign ups are only for a really short time.
The Story Siren has opened up sign ups to the 2012 Debut Author Challenge. I really organize my year's reading with this list. I print out the spreadsheet, yes I am THAT kind of a dork. But, if I could express how many wonderful authors I have discovered this way.....it's good stuff.
The only thing I don't like about the Story Siren anything is that it is SO huge. The odds of winning anything or even getting a conversation going in the 100+ comments is pretty nill.
Cue music: I like small blogs and I cannot lie....
I will probably be taking on double the amount of challenges next year, as I will finally be done school.
What challenges are you thinking of participating in?
