I want to challenge myself to read and reduce my p-books while at the same time making the most use possible of my e-reader. I think 50 books for 2012 is a good start for me, since I'm just obsessive enough to want to surpass the number rather than fall short
And I want to challenge myself with a book club--reading and participating! (It's the second part that will be more difficult, I do believe.)
Thanks for the welcome and explanation given to spindlegirl; I shall warm myself in the reflected glow!
Welcome to MobileRead, e-reading, the 2012 challenge and (hopefully) the book club(s)!!
The Book Clubs:
The Book Clubs are located HERE
. We have two - The Mobile Read Book Club which offers a different genre every month and the Literary Book club which concentrates on literature. You can join either (or both) at anytime. In the Mobile Read book club we are currently voting for the January 2012
selection. There was no nomination process, as January is our "2nd Place" category - we vote between all of the 2nd place books from Feb. to Dec. of the year before. Feel free to jump right in!
In the Literary Book Club
, we are still reading December's selection, but its not to late to start. Discussions will not start until January 1st.
Hope to see you in one or the other.
Don't forget to reserve your spot in the Challenge thread list (see my signature for the link).
