2011 Book Goal Update and Guest Review Call Out

It is nearly the end of January and an update on my reading goal is appropriate.   In order to reach my goal of 75 books in one year, I have to read 6.25 books a month.   I thought 75 books sounded like a lot in one year, but when I broke it down to just over 6 books a month - this goal seems much more manageable. 

I am a member of a website called - it's free!  You should check it out.   GoodReads tracks all of the books that you read during a year and then tells you how many pages you've finished.  GoodReads is far more fun than I've just made it sound because you can also track what your friends are reading and win free books!

GoodReads told me this morning that I've read 7 books in January!  Boom!  I'm roasting this goal.

 I'm also looking for Guest Reviewers for this blog.  It seems that even though I read at an alarmingly fast rate, I still can't post as much as I would like to.  So, if you've read something awesome in the past few weeks, and feel up to the challenge of writing a guest review, then please comment on this post, or contact me.   There are a couple of rules just to keep things uniform, but they are basic and I'll let you know when you commit.

Happy Reading!!

  1. I can't keep up with you, Jilly! Amazing work in January, and looking forward to reading February's results.

    I just finished reading "The Imperfectionists" a few weeks ago, and I'd be happy to review it for you if you'd like. It's about an international newspaper, told through vignettes by each of the staff's integral players.

    Good luck for 6.75 this month!!
