I keep a reading list on my library's website, and it has ninety-three books on it. Yes. Ninety-three. Clearly, it's time to get serious about digging into those. So I'm signing up for the I Love Library Books Reading Challenge hosted by the Book Dragon's Lair. I'm choosing the "chapter book" level for 12 books. That means I need to check out 12 books from the library and read them over the course of 2014. I think I can do that. I might even bump up to a higher level, who knows. Either way, it'll be a nice chunk out of that reading list.
I also have a couple of shelves-worth of books here at home that I have not read yet. I'd like to work through a bunch of those too, so I'm signing up for the Mount TBR Reading Challenge hosted by My Reader's Block. I'm aiming for the "Pike's Peak" level, which also involves 12 books. Again, I may surpass that, but between these two challenges, I'll be reading 2 books a month on top of continuing my Lord of the Rings read-along here, and that's probably plenty for this busy mommy.
Many thanks to Ruth for telling me about both of these challenges!
