‘bout half way through, and it’s lookin’ good.
Really reminds me of a child-version of “Kite Runner”, though i think it has a lot to do with the reason for the book being written, and the way the author wrote it.
2012 Book Challenge
It’s that time of year again! I had a lot of fun participating in the 50 Book Challenge with you guys in 2011. I personally read more than ever and I had to increase my goal to 100 books, which I surpassed. The biggest feedback I received about the challenge was that it encouraged and motivated people to read more.
1. Choose an amount of books that you want to read in 2012 (e.g. 25, 50, 75, 100)
2. Read, read, read!
There isn’t a rule about what type books these have to be; read anything you want. You decide what you want to include (novels, short stories, non-fiction, school books…).
To keep track of how much you’re reading, you can use the Goodreads Reading Challenge, create a list (on Tumblr, LiveJournal, LibraryThing, your computer), write book reviews, post about each book you’re reading - it’s up to you. I personally like to create a 50 Book Challenge page, which I can update easily. It may be a good idea to use the #50 book challenge tag so that others can read posts about your progress.
Although this is a quantifiable challenge, the most important thing is that you’re reading and that you’re having fun doing it :)
