I was spurred by my kindred Amy to read more this year. I read a lot as it is but I want to read more and I want to read a more diverse group of books in 2009. So my goal is one book a week for the entire year. That will give me 52 books in one year. I would like to read a few classics, 1-2 biographies, some good non fiction, fiction. I would like to finsh a few books I have lying around and reread others. I am excited. I have been buying, borrowing, and swapping books to add to my pile so that I never have to go a week without knowing what to read or where to find it. I have gotten some great suggestions and have added one of those to my list. Jill liked Twilight so I have bought that and will read that sometime this year. Also someone from another board has suggested Pope Joan and Josephine B. Now these may not be books I would usually read but I think I will add them to my list. I like knowing what others are reading and staying relevant with my friends or acquaintances.
If you have suggestions feel free to add them here. I am going to need direction if I hope to actually attain this goal! Off to the right I will keep a running count of which books I have read and you can keep up with me. I am reading SoulSalsa right now. Only read 1 chapter this far though, so not sure what I think of it yet. May need to put it aside for awhile and pick up one of your favorites!
