I did it, I did it.... 50 book challenge!

I did it! The 50 book challenge has been completed! I hit the 50 book mark for the year last night, and hopefully the next few months will add some more interesting and readable books to the list!
I have to say, I was a bit sad that I didn't get to the 50 book mark as soon as I did last year: last year, it was in the summer, but I have to give myself some slack- I had my baby girl in the Spring and now have 2 kids to chase after! :)

I'm totally impressed. I still read books, but not nearly as many now that I have two little kiddos running around> How do you do it? :)

I see a new-found love for Tess Gerristen. What kind of books does she write?

LutherLiz said...

Wow! I'm further back than I'd like to be but I still hope to finish by the end of the year!

How do I do it?
Every second that is spare! I read brushing my teeth, going potty (blush), in the car when CJ drives, at night when I can before falling asleep....on the treadmill at the gym. I LOVE LOVE LOVE to read!!

Tess Gerritsen- murder mysteries! Love them!

I can't believe this. Seriously, I am so sad to say i am lucky if I can read 5 books in a year. I think I need to set a personal goal for myself to try the challenge, but I think I have to modify it and set the bar at 25 for the first year. How in the world do you read at the gym? I've never been successful with the running, bouncing around.
