The 52 Book Challenge!
The rules are simple; read, read and read! Keep a list of the books you read (titles, author, and the page numbers) and try to make it to fifty two before 2013 ends. I am low tech as hell so I just keep my list in a word doc on my computer, but you can use Good Reads, a note program on your smart phone, a journal, anything your heart desires. Just make it to fifty two books!
Now, in my head, I've made up a list of things that count and don't count towards this lofty goal. Things that do count: fiction, non-fiction, e-books, bound comic book volumes, anthologies and short stories. Things that do not count: newspapers, magazines, single issue comics (like a weekly Batman comic as opposed to a bound volume of The Killing Joke), websites and social media. Easy enough?
I'm already two books in to the challenge, fifty more to go! Let's get moving, people! Time to get your brains in gear and pledge to read 52 books in 2013!
Ready, set, GO!!!
