Reading Challenge for 2013
Back in 2011 I challenged myself to read 100 books. And failed. Miserably. So for this year I thought, why not let my soul be crushed again by another spectacular failure? Great idea!
My soul can take it.
But I'll switch it up a little this time. This year instead of a set number of "books" (which believe it or not was hard to define when it came down to it), I will vow to read a set number of pages. 20,000 to be exact.
Twenty K seems like a good number. It's how many leagues under the sea Jules Verne chose for his story, and according to wikipedia is the number that comes after 19,999 and before 20,001. Perfect!
This should leave enough freedom for me to read what I want, whether it be something 1200 pages long or a 70 page novella. Or half a poetry anthology. Or the back of a cereal box. It'll all count! (exaggerating a bit).
So maybe this blog will pick back up again, because I realize it's been deadly as of late. Thanks for sticking with me, dear sparse followers.
Happy new year!
