I did it in 2007 so I'm doing it again in 2008, only the goal is higher. I'm reading 100 books this year. And to complicate matters, children's books like the Narnia series don't count. Who made this silly rule? I did...
I invited the teens on CleanPlace to join me in this challenge, and to make sure they were reading quality material, the rule is no children's lit. The teens are trying their best to skirt this rule. We offered them Narnia, but only if they read all seven and count it as one. Now they want everything. But no, we are putting our feet down (we being Dianna, Sarah and I), no children's lit.
This means I have to not only read 25 more books than last year but I also have to read "harder" books as well. Not that I read simple books last year, but I did read a few short ones and a few children's (like Narnia, Island of the Blue Dolphins and Bridge to Terebithia).
Why do I do this to myself??
