50 Book Challenge

January 6, 2011 - 3:41 pm No Comments

So, Angie (you’ll remember her from previous posts) challenged me – and herself – to read and review at least 50 books this year, and of course, I accepted.   I figure it’s a good way to get more active on the blog and be more social in the literary community, so keep an eye out for at least 50 more posts this year!

(Speaking of being more social, I’ve currently joined up on Goodreads, so if you want to friend me there to check out what I’m reading as it happens, find me as  – you guessed it – Paperclippe.  Let me know who you are and how you found me and I’ll happily friend you right back!)

Already this year I’ve finished 4 books and will probably be blogging about at least half of them.  They are (were)

  • Galactic North by Alastair Reynolds
  • The Hellbound Heart by Clive Barker
  • Skeleton Crew by Stephen King
  • Audition by Ryu Murakami

And I finished a good few during the holidays (thanks to my shiny new kindle oh my god it is more awesome than I ever could have imagined) but unfortunately those don’t count toward the 50 book challenge.  They may, however, get blogged about at some point.

All for now.  Keep an eye out, I don’t plan on being as big of a slacker as I’ve been lately (but how many times have I said that before).
