I have seen an idea of someone setting a book goal by going off of an alphabetized list. What a great idea!!! So I am doing the same. Maybe you can help me out as I set my book reading goals for 2014.
I will have two lists. The first A-Z list will be books I chose myself, along with some recommendations from friends mixed in.
Because of the A book, my time frame is 10/29/2013-10/29/14. I am doing my best to make them all not in one genre. So far so good.
The second A-Z list will be all suggestions from friends, authors, and maybe you! I am going totally crazy and I am going to pick books and genres that are out of my comfort zone. I would love you the reader to make suggestions. If I pick your book I will mention your name here on my blog. I may even do a giveaway. So be on the lookout for that! I will announce it well ahead of time. Again I am going to be looking for different genres, ie - I will not read all horror books (that is a different challenge!).
There is nothing on the second list yet. Again please leave a comment and the name of the book and a link if you can (say to goodreads.com or Amazon.com). I will mention you here!
I know this will be a lot of fun.
If anyone wants to read or has read these books I would love to have you comment. And maybe we can start a discussion. Depending on the book.
