The Book Goddess’s 2008 Reading Challenge January 7, 2008

The New Year is here, and I have a really fun resolution!  In fact, I’m hoping that some of you will choose to join me.  Here’s how it works:  You start by asking a selected group of people (friends, family, people you admire…) for their number one book recommendation for you.  It would be optimal to pick twelve, I think, for the twelve months of the year, but you can set your own schedule.

First of all, you should end up with a really interesting group of books to read.  Also, you’ll make your friends happy, especially if they have been suggesting a certain title to you for years.  (I resisted reading The World According to Garp for many years, despite numerous recommendations.  I don’t know why.  It was very good.  Thank you, Rob, if you happen to read this!)  And I think it is a really cool way to get to know a friend better.

I’ll be reporting on my own progress here, and I would love to hear from you about your reading experiences.  Please let me know if you have any questions.  I will say this – there’s no wrong way to do it, just so long as you’re reading!  And I will be very happy to make recommendations myself – of course.

Reading – it’s really important, and we want to make time for it, and one of the best parts of reading is sharing it with a good friend.  This year, you can expand your reading horizons and get closer to people you care about!

Happy Reading in the New Year!
