Just before the New Year starts to fluff out its fledgling wings, I've been thinking about the two reading challenges I signed up for in the new year.
I always enjoy this week between Christmas and New Year. Having the week off means lounging about the house, enjoying some down time. Which means the luxurious opportunity to gather the new books we received as Christmas gifts and settle down for a good read by the fireplace.
2009 Read Your Own Books challenge (link no longer available) will certainly be interesting. As I'm always coming across a new book I absolutely must own, how will I be able to keep from purchasing new ones if I'm to focus on what I already own? I guess that's why they call it a challenge!
2009 What's In A Name challenge has me browsing the library shelves to see if I can find books with the suggested words I need in the title (profession, time of day, relative, body part, building, and medical condition). Although I have a couple on my shelf that will work, the rest I'll have to go further afield. Should be fun to scout out some new topics and titles!
Wishing you some happy holiday reading opportunities,
