Reading Challenge 2011

I’ve challenged myself to read 52 books in 2011, that’s a book a week.  (Hey, I have to leave time for knitting, too!)

Finished the 52 books with plenty of time to spare, so upping the ante to 75 books!!!

*sigh*   Didn’t count on life interfering… should have stayed with the original goal.  Only made it to 63.

The Shakespeare Manuscript: The Original Hamlet Discovered, by Stewart Buettner – When I have to force myself to keep reading, it’s not a good sign.  Just moved on.

    When you connected with me on goodreads, I had no idea who you were…now that I’ve checked your blog I know 🙂 I’ve challenged myself to 30 books but I don’t think I have a prayer of that….
