I have a confession to make...

Sunday, June 12, 2016

Okay, I feel I need to spill my beans.  I need to confess something so terrible, I'm almost too ashamed to share...

I am 9 books behind on my Goodreads 2016 Reading Challenge!!!!!

I know, I know...it's bad isn't it?  Life has got in the way of my reading obsession, or I bit off more than I could chew.  Either way, it bothers me every day when I open Goodreads on my computer.

For those not familiar with Goodreads, it is a lovely website where bibliophiles far and wide can post reviews of books, keep track of their to-read list, join in discussions with authors and reviewers alike and enter giveaways for free books.  You can also set a reading challenge for yourself, choosing a goal of how many books you want to read during the course of the year.  I have participated in the challenge since 2014...and picked 60 books as my goal.  Now, I only put a hand full of kids books on there, the ones that really stand out to me, because I feel it would be cheating.  Each week that I do Story Time, I read between 12 and 20 kids books on the theme I have chosen.  See...cheating, undeniably. But this year I lost my fucking mind and picked 80 books!!  And I'm only at 26!    Ugh...and here I am starting a reading blog.

Well, I have a renewed verve and pep in my reading step.  In starting this blog I have found a ton of other fabulous reading blogs out there...on Twitter, Instagram, Blogger...people posting lists, links to their reviews on Goodreads, etc.  My to-read list has quadrupled in a week!  Color me inspired.

So, my soul feels much better after this confession.  I feel cleansed.  Thank you for that.

If you haven't checked out Goodreads, or you're just curious what is on my reading list, take a peek. Do you have a reading goal for this year, if so let me know.  In the meantime, I'm just gonna go grab another book off my shelf...I have some reading to do.
