Welcome to "Laurie Here - Contemporary Fiction and MORE - Book Reviews"! Join me and let's escape life into the wonderful world of books getting lost between the covers where the lives of the characters live and their amazing stories take place for a little while! Let's learn about the authors, too! I write "honest" book reviews about my experiences and tell you how the trip was! You may want to follow along with me, too! Leave a comment while you're here, too!
The Outdo Yourself Reading Challenge! Last year I wanted to read 115 books. It did NOT happen. I had to drop it down because of health problems here and there, and ended up with 68 books, I believe? This year I REALLY WANT TO DO 100 BOOKS! This is A HUGE goal for myself! WHY 100? Because reading is such a WONDERFUL escape from life, especially when you have a neurological muscle disease! Not to mention a Kindle AND a Kindle Fire! PLUS BOOKS, BOOKS, AND MORE BOOKS!
Here are the rules COPIED AND PASTED from The Book Vixen! If I do it, I do it!!! YEAH!! If I don't, I don't. See, it can work the opposite on me, too, like last year! I thought I could read MORE, but it turned out I could NOT! So, even though my GOAL IS, it could turn out NOT to be? We'll see!
Here are the rules:
What’s your reading goal for 2013? If it’s to read more books, then this is the reading challenge for you! There have been almost 400 readers who wanted to outdo themselves so far. Are you up for the challenge?
Reading Challenge Details:
Runs January 1, 2013 – December 31, 2013 (books read prior to 1/1/2013 do not count towards the challenge). You can join at anytime. Sign up on The Book Vixen’s blog.
The goal is to outdo yourself by reading more books in 2013 than you did in 2012. See the different levels below and pick the one that works best for you. You can move up a level as often as you’d like but no moving down.
Books can be any format (bound, ebook, audio).
Novellas that are at least 100 pages in length, as well as full-length novels, will count for this reading challenge.
