My New Blog

Saturday, April 26, 2008

I have always been an avid reader. When I was younger, I would become so absorbed in a book that nothing else mattered until I reached the last page. My dad would tease me about this when, over a weekend, I seemed to finish a book every day.

As an adult, my obsession with books has only gotten worse. Every so often, my husband forces me to clean out the bookcases. Little does he know that this is just an excuse to acquire more books! After all, a bookcase should never be empty! I have gotten better at filling my bookcases. I now find books in the library, at Paperback Swap, and numerous websites.

In January, I read an article about a woman who claimed to have read 200 books in 2007. That got me thinking - How many books did I read in 2007? What about 2008? I decided I should keep track. So far this year, I am up to 29. Not too shabby, but not 200!

I will be posting about the books I read this year, as well as any book challenges I join.

Happy Reading!

I too am a new blogger! Your first post sounds very similar to mine (though more well written)! I've been having a blast this month with this whole blogging thing--I'm spending way too much time reading other people's blogs!

Wow, 29 books already this year sounds amazing to me! Not too shabby, indeed. I'm such a slow reader, 200 books a year is an impossible dream! Fortunately, my husband is book-obsessed, too, so I don't have to worry about emptying bookcases.

Welcome to the world of blogging and happy reading to you, too!
