50 Book Challenge 2013

One of my New Year resolutions was to read more. Before Syds arrival I worked in a bookshop and read 2-3 books a week. Since his arrival I have read about 6 in total. Must get back into the habit, and in a timely fashion one of my favourite bloggers, Mama Owl, wrote about challenging herself to read 50 books this year. So I am going to join in. I am not sure I will reach 50, but it’s good to have a goal that puts reading back on the agenda as a priority.

I am no longer privy to my large discount on new books so will rely on a mixture of charity shops, e-book bargains, and hand me downs! Tho am sure some newbies will sneak in…. Do let me know if you have read something fabulous, I love a recommendation!

I will post my progress!

    Good for you! I love reading too, but the more I blog, tweet and read other blogs, the less I read books, which is a real shame. I read 27 books last year. I suspect it will be less this year. I review most of them on my blog, so I’ll have a recommendation (or otherwise) every couple of weeks!

    I love this idea! I haven’t read a book since the twins arrived due to lack of time but can now scratch some back – I’m joining in, so glad I popped over πŸ™‚ and best of luck. I got Casual Vacancy JK Rowling for Christmas so I’ll start with that

    I used to read about one or two books a week back in the day when I used to commute to London every day. Now it takes me forever to read a book which is a shame because I love reading. I know I’d never read 50 books in a year these days so I am hoping to read at least one book a month this year.

      I doubt I will reach 50, but setting the challenge will hopefully remind me to prioritise reading again!
