It’s no joke that I love to read. I’ve talked a lot about my love (addiction?) for reading on the blog before, but now I’m really excited to announce my participation with a really cool idea that my fellow blogger, Sarah Ohm, came up with.
In December, she polled several bloggers who are known for their healthy lifestyle blogs to see if anyone would be interested in joining a blogger book club. She got a great response and Sarah Ohm’s Blogger Book Club was born.
We have themes for each month, listed below, and at the end of every month we link up. I, of course, being as flaky as I am, completely lost track of time and forgot to read a book for January. I read books, but not a motivational book. Fail.
I had every intention of mapping out every book I planned on reading for this through the rest of the year. But then I realized that’s just not realistic for me. I have about 30 books in waiting on my Nook (yes, I hoard books – I have a problem) and I usually try to read what I have before I purchase more. Some of the books I have would be great for later in the year, but I don’t want to wait to read them either.
There are SO MANY BOOKS out there to choose from. I decided to map out based on the books that I’ve had sitting on my wish list. I figured it’s a good way to pick away at it.
