"A book, too, can be a star, a living fire to lighten the darkness, leading out into the expanding universe.”
― Madeleine L'Engle
I'm really looking forward to starting the challenge. Not sure if I'll be able to keep up but I'm planning on giving it a good go :) Mind you if my reading ability is anything like my posting comments ability, I think I'm going to have serious problems LOL
Looking forward to this!
This is going to be enjoyable. Thanks for creating this challenge.
Hi Robin,I really enjoyed this challenge this year. I am looking forward to doing it again next year. Have a great day!SherrieJust Books
I can't wait to start this challenge. Hopefully, I can keep up.
I look forward to this. I did it on my own a few years back and loved it. Look forward to the group experience.
It will be so nice to be able to discuss the books!Eeeh!And recommendations too!!!I feel like I just won whatever was behind door number 2.
I just love this idea. I'm looking foward to challenging myself to read a book a week.
I am so excited! I only read 30 books last year, and would love to read more! THANKS for hosting this!!!!
This is a really neat idea! I hope to keep up!
I cannot wait to begin this challenge. I own over 1,000 books and I don't seem to be able to read them as quicly as I buy them... and my fiance isn't too thrilled. This should help me get through them quicker.
THis is my first time beginning this challenge! And boy is it going to be a fun and thrilling one! I cannot wait to begin on the 1st! Happy New Year everyone!
I'm so glad there are others participating in this challenge! It's going to be like an online book club, marathon-style. :)
Also looking forward to starting this- but relate to tech difficulties- it seems I have signed myself up twice!! Sorry- I don't know how to delete one of them!
So sorry, somehow I signed myself up twice. I might read 104 books, but I'm not committing to it. LOL. Ready to get started!
I tried to sign up, but my name or blog isn't showing I"m listed. Not sure why??
I'm looking forward to the challenge. These are the books currently on my list. Come visit my blog and make suggestions!Moby Dick - Herman Melville - I might need this for a class I'm thinking about taking and I've never read it. My professor kept saying that he thought this was one of the best examples of the Great American Novel.No Country For Old Men - Cormac McCarthy - Yes, I've seen the movie, and from what I've read so far and what I remember of the movie, the movie seems to be pretty true to the book. You'll have to take my word for it that I read it.The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay - Michael Chabon - One of those books that has been sitting on my shelf for quite a while, but I never got around to reading. I think I heard an interview with the author which piqued my interest. It won a Pulitzer Prize, so hopefully it will be a worthwhile read.The Lexicographer's Dilemma - Jack Lynch - This has to do with the evolution of "Proper" English. I love things to do with the history of language. This would be an example of the type of non-fiction book in which I would be interested.A Short History of Nearly Everything - Bill Bryson - according to the author, this is a book about life, the universe and everything, from the Big Bang to the ascendancy of Homo sapiens. Another example of what I regard as interesting non-fiction.
BTW - I'm number 43 in the links!or click here:http://the52booksin52weekspersonalchallenge.blogspot.com/
Nervous, but looking forward to it!
Think I got all signed up. Looking forward to the challenge.~~Faithe
Looking forward to this challenge. I have my first book read just need to find time to post a review on my blog.
I am both excited and nervous about this challenge, but I feel that it will be well worth it.
I'm looking forward to playing along! And I'll be bringing the kids along for the ride as well; they're excited to start their own 52/52 challenge!
I look forward to working on this project throughout the year!
Awesome idea. I love it.
I'm very excited to be doing my first ever challenge this year! Thank goodness for iphone and ebooks (and insomnia doesn't hurt either!)
I read all the time, looking forward to joining!
Starting on week 2, but I'll catch up with an extra book at some point!
Better late than never! I'm doubling up for a week or two to catch up.
Just posted on weeks one and two in my blog!
This will be a fun challenge. I'm almost done with my 3rd book of the year so I'm right on track.
This is my first year on this project and am really looking forward to it. Although I am late to sign up, I did start reading at the start of the year.
Just signed up. Hope I can keep up.
Hi Robin, this has been a blast. Can't belive I'm keeping up = ) but it has been terrific to be so intentional about reading. Kudos!
Starting late- hope I can get all 52 in. I'm looking forward to it!
Thank you for your kind comments.
