Well, Smart Girls. We are fastly approaching the busiest season of the year. Can you believe it's already November? I sure can't, but I have a list a mile long of all the things I need to get done by the end of the year. Crafts and baking and shopping...oh my! And now I've just added something crazy to my already long list: my own reading challenge.
As you may know, I belong to a WONDERFUL book club. We have read some really wonderful books, but now that we are to such a busy time of year, we always take December off. There is just so much to do that we take a break from book club. So now I have 8 weeks. Am I going to take 8 weeks off of reading? Of course not! I have planned a lovely little book binge for myself.
You see, I am one of those few readers who has not yet plunged into the Harry Potter pool. I just haven't had time because I know that once I start, I will want to read straight through the entire series. Well now I have 8 weeks and I'm going to knuckle down and do it. I will be reading all 7 books in 8 weeks. By New Year's Day, I will be finished, or I really will be staying up burning the midnight oil. And I'm only giving my self until January 1st because our next book club meeting is January 7th and I will have to have finished our next book by then. So yes, I have 8 books to read in 9 weeks. Plus the one I was already reading before I started this crazy trek. I can do it, right? Right??
Wish me luck and check back to see how I'm coming along!
