50 Books Challenge. - July 28th 2011, 05:47 PM

I've decided, thanks to many wonderful people here at TH, to do the 50 books challenge. I've already finished one, and you can follow my Tumblr blog to see how I'm progressing. The link for my blog is 50bookschallenge.tumblr.com

Also, the list of books I'm reading is also provided on my first entry.

I thought about doing that challenge this year. I actually kept track of the books I've read since the beginning of 2011 and I'm almost at fifty now.

Huh, I haven't heard of that challenge before today. It sounds like a good idea. Maybe I'll do it next year.

Pretty much you just read 50 books you've never read before the end of the year. Those are the basic rules. But all sorts of people have all sorts of rules, for me it's a competition between me and a roommate so we have stricter rules than that (but we're also going higher than 50)

Do you pick whatever books you want and do you do it as you go through the challenge or before hand? I love this idea! Xxx

You can do Melissa, it varies. Some people, like Shannon, are following a set list. Others, like me, are just reading 50 new books in a year. Others might even allow re-reads

. I thought I'd make a new blog than using my blog on here! That's more for personal stuff. I'm almost done reading my second book now, so keep a look out for my next entry guys!

For me, I preferred to make a list so I didn't have to spend hours in the library or book store trying to find something interesting. I did general searches on Google looking for books people recommended, and I even joined the website GoodReads to help me with my search.

When I compiled my list, which is the first entry of my Tumblr, I look up the books within the libraries nearby my home (We can check books out as long as they're within the Chicago Library System, thank God!). I'm reading a ton of classics, and right now, I'm about 100 pages away from finishing Catch-22 by Joseph Heller. So far, it's definitely a GoodRead
