I don't know about you, but every year my book list seems to grow longer every time I cross off a finished book.
Books are like chocolate for me.
Each one is a delight in its own style, and after finishing one I only ever want more.
Since summer is coming, and since I do have an ever growing list of books to read, I thought I would try something new, and hopefully do something fun, by creating a book list on the sidebar section of my blog, with the Title and Author of the book I am currently reading.
I'm also going to create a book challenge that lists 25 ideas for types of books to read to help me get excited about each new read.
( Not like I'm not already excited, but crossing stuff off is one of those happy things for me. )
And I'm making a blog post out of it to see how many people I can get to join. :)
That Polkadot Girl's Summer Book List:
A New Book
A Book that was Made into a Movie
A Book You Pick Solely Because of the Cover
A Book by an Author You Have Never Read Before
A Book with a Color in the Title
A Book Set Somewhere You Have Always Wanted to Visit
A Book of Poems
A Book that will Make You Smarter
A Book Everyone but You has Read
A Book Based on a True Story
A Book that is a Century Old
A Book that Takes Place on a Island
A Book that is Guaranteed to Bring you Joy
A Book that is More than 600 Pages
A Book Translated to English
And that is my list.
I'm hoping to read more than 25 books this summer.
Many, many more.
But this is a start, and I have a feeling it will help me finally get to reading some of those books
that have been on my list for a while.
