- You don't have a blog to participate. Post your weekly book in the comments section of each weekly post.
- Mr. Linky will be added to the bottom of the weekly post for you to link to reviews of your most current reads.
**in reference to children books. If it is a child whose reading it and involved in the challenge, then that's okay. If an adult is doing read aloud with kids, the book should be geared for the 9 - 12 age group and above and over 100 pages. If adult reading for own enjoyment, then a good rule of thumb to go by "is there some complexity to the story or is it too simple?" If it's too simple, then doesn't count.
I'm in. Haven't revived my blog yet, so just posting here for now. I know I'll have no problem reading fiction, hoping to be more intentional with my nonfiction this year!ReplyDelete
Great! That's one thing I need to do more of as well - read non fiction.Delete

I'm participating! (: http://outsidethelinesx.wordpress.com/2014/01/06/52-books-52-weeks/ReplyDelete
I'm definitely doing this! http://coleeindc.blogspot.com/2014/01/52-in-52.html I'm a little late in posting my first book, so I'm going to post two books this week.ReplyDelete
I am doing the A-Z Challenge. I have so far read Anna Karenina and The Breakdown Lane. Anna Karenina was hands down the longest book I've ever read!!!!!! The whole time I kept wondering when it would end. Not that I didn't enjoy it. I did. I felt there were certain subplots that didn't need to be needed. If the book was just about Anna Karenina and not about Levin, it would have been more shorter. It is a classic and an amazing book. Breakdown Lane was better than I expected. It's a recommended read. The book is very relatable to me because I have a screwed up family as well that dealt with some of the issues that are in the book. I am now just starting to read a book for C- The Condition.ReplyDelete
Just read J.K. Rowling's new book The Cuckoo's Calling instead of The Condition. It was pretty good. The book was definitely well-thought. The mystery part at first was a little confusing and there were certain parts that I had to reread but overall was really good. I like how Rowling knows how to make distinctive characters where you are able to visualize them.ReplyDelete
Signing up again this year, so I can show I can do the record keeping as well as read the books! :O) Will try one or more of the mini-challenges (I'm liking the monthly theme idea especially).ReplyDelete
Look forward to participating in 2015.ReplyDelete
I am not done yet but will answer the questions by December 31st!ReplyDelete
Thought I would try this , actually count how many books I read . Linking up with my blog this eveningReplyDelete
I'm joining again this year...and this year I hope to keep up with linking the books I read. Last year I kept on forgetting, but had a wonderful time reading 90 books. I switched to mostly non-fiction, and it has made a real difference in my life.ReplyDelete
Great! My hope is to tackle more nonfiction. We will see how that works.Delete
