So Many Challenges!

To read my first book review for my wordpress blog, go here!

I've been reading a lot of different blogs lately, most of them connected with reading challenges. I'm a little in awe, actually, because I had no idea things like this existed. I mean, ACPL's Summer Reading Program is like a reading challenge, but these bloggers are taking it upon themselves to challenge people to read - anything from "Once Upon a Time" books to six historical fiction novels in six months. I'm intrigued. Blogs such as A Novel Challenge keep people up-to-date on new challenges hosted by bloggers everywhere. I've been very tempted to join several of these challenges already, but keep reigning myself in when I realize that I have absolutely no time for any other challenges at the moment. However, it's nice to know things like this are out there, and people really are reading, no matter what reports say.

And to leave you on a good note, here's a joke I just found out about:

"A lot of people ask me if I were shipwrecked, and could only have one book, what would it be? I always say, 'How to Build a Boat.'"
~Stephen Wright

Happy Wednesday!


  1. Had to go watch some Stephen Wright on YouTube after that post!

    My grandmother handed me ten dollars and said "don't tell your mother I'm giving you this." I said "it's going to cost you more than that."
